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
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. For appointments outside of the drop-in times listed below, please email facilitator [at] datascience.wisc.edu.
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, set up an account in the the Data Science Hub Slack Workspace. If you already have an account you can sign in at data-science-hubgroup.slack.com. Once you have set up an account, browse the channels for the #coding-meetup and #office-hours and type your message into those channels during the respective events.
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 hosts an annual Data Science Research Bazaar, 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. View the websites for our previous (2020, 2021) Data Science Research Bazaars at this link.
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.
