National Student Data Corps (NSDC) - Inaugural Data Science Symposium

We are delighted to invite undergraduate- and graduate-level students, researchers, faculty members, and professionals to participate in the Inaugural National Student Data Corps (NSDC) Data Science Symposium!

This event will provide a virtual forum for undergraduate and graduate students at public and private universities, colleges and community colleges who are interested in data science to present research, network with other data science students, and grow their data science knowledge and community.

Student participants, also known as NSDC Explorers, will receive an extensive network of support, including mentoring calls and workshops, hosted by the NSDC HQ and Mentor teams, to help them better understand the best data science research techniques.

We’d also like to invite academic/industry/non-profit professionals, researchers, and graduate students to participate as mentors, judges, or both! Mentors may co-host virtual workshops with the NSDC HQ team to provide students with guidance on their data science research projects, while judges will use a provided rubric to evaluate student submissions (a virtual poster board, an audio/video presentation, and an abstract).

The NSDC DSS webpage (nebigdatahub.org/nsdc-dss/) provides more information about the event, including step-by-step instructions on how to participate, research prompts and challenges, free resources, and FAQs.

Important dates: Student poster submissions are due June 15, 2022. Mentors will sign up to co-host mentoring calls based on their availability from February through June 2022. Judges will judge the submissions in June and July 2022. Winners in the undergraduate/community college and graduate student cohorts will be announced by September 2022, and the winners will be invited to present on a Zoom webinar to the international NSDC Community!

We welcome you to join us, and please share this invitation with others who might be interested. The event is free.

On behalf of the National Student Data Corps, thank you and we hope to see you at the NSDC DSS!
