Hosting an Official ASA DataFest
The ASA DataFest organizer must be faculty or staff at an academic institution and NOT a student (undergraduate or graduate). The data and other materials will be provided through the ASA Community, so at least one member of the organizing team must be a member of the ASA. Exceptions can be made under exceptional circumstances. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
To be an official ASA DataFest, organizers must agree to use the official data set, to abide by a few ground rules, and to hold the event within the date range March 24, 2023 – April 30, 2023. To register your institution’s intent to host a local ASA DataFest event, please register here no later than January 31, 2023. An ASA DataFest virtual information townhall will be scheduled early in 2023 so watch for registration information.
