Organizing Committee

The MAA – SIAM & TRIPODS Advanced Workshop in Data Science for Mathematical Sciences Faculty is a 5-day hands-on workshop for mathematical sciences faculty who have had some exposure to and experience with data science but who are not themselves data science experts. Participants of the 2017 or 2019 PIC Math Data Science Workshops that were held at BYU qualify and those who have experience coding in Python and applying basic statistical techniques to a large data set. The goal of the workshop is to bring together faculty from a range of institutions and expand the knowledge of the participants so that they are better armed to prepare students for the data science workforce.

Participants will learn more advanced techniques in the fields of data science, statistical learning, and machine learning. They will collaborate on data science projects that will involve accessing and cleaning large data sets and analyzing the data using data science methods. The majority of the technical content of the workshop will be delivered by experts in data science such as Prof. Randy Paffenroth of Worcester Polytechnic Institute and there will also be presentations by data science practitioners from industry.

Please note, this workshop is for mathematical sciences faculty only. ICERM welcomes applications from faculty who wish to participate.

Support for this workshop is also provided by the PIC Math Program via NSF grant DMS-1722275.
