Description

Roundtable on Data Science Postsecondary Education: Programs and Approaches for Data Science Education at the PhD Level

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will hold a one-day meeting and webcast on "Programs and Approaches for Data Science Education at the PhD Level" on June 13, 2018 in Washington DC. The meeting will bring together data scientists and educators in academia and industry to 1) learn about the content and organization of new and emerging data science PhD programs, and 2) discuss alternatives for structuring PhD programs including stand-alone PhDs, domain-based concentrations, and interdisciplinary IGERT programs. For more information, visit the event website or download the agenda.

For this event, you have the option to register as an in-person participant or as a webcast participant. Please select the appropriate ticket type so we can get a correct head count!

Please note that the afternoon breakout session will not be webcast.
