Data Science Winter Institute 2017 will be held on 7-8 Dec 2017 (Thursday & Friday) at the University of Hong Kong. This Winter Institute is organized by the iSchool Asia-Pacific Chapter and the University of Hong Kong. The Winter Institute’s main theme is:

“Survival of the fittest! How can iProfessionals survive and thrive in this fast-changing and data-intensive world?”

Over the span of two days, this Winter Institute will equip iProfessionals with the latest marketable knowledge and skills, especially in data science. It will focus on key topics such as data science, data curation, data literacy, and 21st century skills. Presentations will be held on 8 Dec 2017, 14:30-17:30, by graduate students and iProfessionals.

The Data Science Winter Institute Organizing Committee is now calling for papers from iProfessionals and iSchool students.

Three presentation formats will be accepted, namely:

  • Paper Presentations
  • Symposia (group of presentations on a theme)
  • Workshops

Submitted proposals, including an abstract of 300-500 words will be reviewed by the Data Science Winter Institute Organizing Committee.

Submission and Enquiries
Please submit proposals to the organizing committee at winterinstitute2017@gmail.com on or before 24 November 2017 (Fri), as well as any enquiries you have.

I look forward to your active participation.

Best regards,
Sam Chu
