Hosted by the Institute for Data Science, Data Day is an annual conference held in early spring that celebrates the latest developments in data science and analytics research within Carleton University, the local community and Canada. Our fifth annual Data Day will be held on Tuesday March 27th, 2018 at Carleton University. The event will include presentations by Carleton researchers, government and industry experts, keynote addresses, and panel discussions. In addition, there will be a speed networking session where Carleton students will be able to meet and network with industry. Running concurrently will be a poster competition to showcase graduate student research in data science and analytics across all disciplines.

This year’s Data Day 5.0 panels will focus on the themes below:

  1. E-commerce, big data and societal change
  2. Artificial intelligence and machine learning
  3. Authoritative data in a big data era

Data Day is open to all data science and analytics enthusiasts, regardless of affiliation to Carleton University. In previous years, our attendees have been equally spread between the public and private sectors and the Carleton community. This blend of academia and industry creates an ideal environment for multidisciplinary collaboration and networking.

This event is free and open to the public but registration is required and space is limited. Refreshments and a buffet lunch are included. You won’t want to miss this!
