Speed Mentoring
Are you looking for a quick way to make connections, solicit career advice, and develop professional relationships? Or maybe you want to provide advice and guidance to early-career statisticians and data scientists? Whether you are interested in mentoring or being mentored, you should consider participating in our new speed mentoring session. Mentees and mentors will have several short, one-on-one, career-focused conversations, followed by unstructured time to socialize and follow up. This is a great opportunity for both mentors and mentees to build their professional networks! Sign up as a mentor or mentee today!

Open Forum/Fireside Chat
New horizons and controversies seem to emerge constantly in the world of statistics and data science. Who can keep up? Our distinguished panel of statistics and data science leaders will discuss this and more in an informal and wide-reaching conversation that contextualizes the SDSS experience with issues of the day.

Consider participating in a fun, collaborative data challenge! The data hackathon will take place throughout the conference with the opening event on Wednesday night. Use the hackathon to improve your data analysis skills, give back to the community, and meet other participants!

SDSS Teacher Workshop
Considering how to incorporate data science into your high-school STEM classroom? Walk through how data scientists carry out projects using RStudio, introduce the basics of the R programming language, and work with real data sets to generate visualizations and analyze data.

Bring your laptop and be prepared to actively engage with R via RStudio Cloud.

The workshop will be taught by Shannon Ellis, an assistant teaching professor at the University of California, San Diego and a developer of Chromebook Data Science—a free online educational program that teaches the basics of data science.

Seats are limited, so be sure to sign up by May 15 to reserve your spot!
