You are invited to attend the Data Science: Computation and Visualization Workshop to be held at Grinnell College, Grinnell IA, June 11-13, 2018. Registration, food and lodging are all covered by a generous grant from the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust to Grinnell College.
This workshop is designed for faculty who want to better prepare students in meeting the challenges of formatting, analyzing, and visualizing increasingly complex and large data sets. Two workshop tracks are planned. The first track is intended for faculty with little or no previous experience using R and Rstudio and will introduce participants to some tools for data analysis and visualization. The second track is intended for faculty with some previous experience using R and RStudio and will develop additional skills in these platforms.
Leading the workshop will be Nick Horton, professor of statistics at Amherst College; Danny Kaplan, DeWitt Wallace Professor of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at Macalester College; and Randy Pruim, professor of mathematics and statistics at Calvin College.
The deadline for applications for participation is March 31. Preference will be given to participants who are arriving with a specific topic of interest, or are planning to attend as part of a team of two or more faculty from the same institution, often with one member being someone with experience in statistics.
