Data Science Coast to Coast (DSC2C) is an online seminar series presenting leaders in data science whose research spans the theory and methodology of data science, and their application in arts and humanities, engineering, biomedical, natural, physical and social sciences. The lecture series is jointly hosted by six academic data science institutes, with sessions presented via Zoom at no charge. Two initial presentations have already been announced, with more planned for the future.
The first DSC2C presentation is a lecture by Talitha Washington (left), Director of the Atlanta University Center Consortium (AUCC) Data Science Initiative on Oct. 21, 2020. The second is a lecture by Alex Szalay (below right), Distinguished Professor in the Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University, where he is also a professor in the department of Computer Science, and the director of the Institute of Data Intensive Engineering and Science (IDIES). Szalay’s presentation takes place on Nov. 18, 2020. More detail and instructions for joining these free lectures can be found using the links above.
Three of DSC2C’s six academic sponsors are affiliated with iSchools member-institutions, including the Berkeley Institute for Data Science, the University of Michigan’s Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS), and the University of Washington’s eScience Institute. Additional sponsors include NYU’s Center for Data Science, Rice University’s Ken Kennedy Institute, and Stanford Data Science.
