The Data Science Hub in the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery collaborates closely with the Data Science Institute to provide data science training and implementation across campus. The Data Science Hub executes a mission for community engagement and learning opportunities for campus researchers through a variety of services, including:
- consultations with Data Science Facilitators who can recommend learning pathways and project strategies, and liaise contacts with collaborators and data science experts
- community events and co-sponsored seminars that bring together researchers and other partners around relevant data science topics
- regular trainings (including Carpentries workshops) around fundamental data science and computational skills
The 2nd annual Data Science Research Bazaar will happen between February 3 & 24, 2021, with a focus on "Data Science for the Social Good."
Contact the Data Science Facilitators:
Discover campus data and computing resources. Discuss ways to enhance your research with data science. Collaborate with data scientists and other researchers on campus.
Coding Meetup – Tuesdays, 2:30–4:30 p.m.
Office Hours – Thursdays, 2:30–4:30 p.m.
To join Coding Meetup and Office Hours, join data-science-hubgroup.slack.com.
The Data Science Hub hosts trainings and workshops to help researchers learn the skills they need to reproducibly write software and analyze data. For more information about these workshops and others offered elsewhere on campus, see the Training Opportunities Page.
We can also create custom trainings for your lab group or class.
The Data Science Hub hosted its first Data Science Research Bazaar on January 24-25, 2020, and is planning another Research Bazaar for early 2021. The 2021 Data Science Research Bazaar will happen on February 3, 4, 10, 17 & 24, 2021, and will focus on “Data Science for the Social Good.”
The Data Science Research Bazaar is an informal conference where researchers and data scientists from various disciplines and industries have opportunities to share their work, collaborate, and discuss their data science interests. The Data Science Research Bazaar is modeled off of the internationally occurring Research Bazaar, a worldwide festival that promotes the digital literacy emerging at the center of modern research.
The Data Science Hub publishes a fortnightly newsletter with updates on data and computing news and events for the UW-Madison community.
