The UW-Madison Research Bazaar seeks submissions for lightning talks, posters, interactive discussions, workshops, and an art meets science exhibit for our 5th annual event, February 7-8 at the Discovery Building. With an overarching theme of Data in Action, the Research Bazaar encourages cross-pollination of ideas among researchers, data scientists, entrepreneurs, and community members, including students. The aim of this event is to foster a thriving data science community on campus and in the wider community, and to equip researchers from all career stages with the digital skills and tools required to do their work efficiently and equitably.
The Research Bazaar is an opportunity for you to share your research and projects! We welcome submissions from all fields and levels of expertise. If you use data in your research, we encourage you to share your work at the Research Bazaar. Some examples of areas where we are interested in presentations about data in action include:
- Education practice and policy
- Agriculture and the environment
- Health, wellness, and health care
- Equity, diversity, and inclusion; law and ethics
- Open science and open source code
- Cities, communities, and government
- Digital humanities
- Fundamental and applied research
- And more!
For more than a century, UW–Madison has been dedicated to the Wisconsin Idea, the principle that our work should benefit people’s lives beyond the borders of campus. In keeping with this tradition, the Research Bazaar is an opportunity to think about and discuss data through the lens of community inclusion and impact. We especially welcome submissions that highlight the work of individuals from historically excluded groups and/or address ongoing societal inequities.
Proposals are due November 10. For more information about presentation opportunities and how to apply, visit the event webpage.
