New Approaches to Data Science - Information and Networking Event

EPSRC's Information Communication Technology (ICT), Mathematical Sciences and Digital Economy Themes have launched a call for proposals, 'New Approaches to Data Science'. Through this call, EPSRC aims to support collaborations which enable researchers from different areas of data science to cooperate and work with each other and with users of data in new and imaginative ways. Full details are available in the call document.

To facilitate collaboration we will be hosting a one-day Information and Networking event on 15 November 2016 in London (10:00-16:00 approx). Attendance at the event will not be a pre-requisite for submission to the call and a report from the day including frequently asked questions will be published on the EPSRC website as soon as possible following the event.

The aim of the event is to enable networking between individuals from different areas of data science as well as between academics and research users, and to provide an opportunity for potential applicants to better understand the scope and requirements of the call. The event will include presentations by both EPSRC and individuals with experience taking a collaborative/interdisciplinary approach to data science. During networked sessions, attendees will be asked to share/discuss their research ideas and/or the challenges that they wish to address.

Those interested in attending are asked to complete the Expression of Interest form below, by 25 October 2016. Please note that places will be limited and you will be notified as to whether you have a place at the event by 07 November 2016.
