Join the UVA Data Science Institute for Datapalooza 2018. Featuring highlights from cutting-edge research happening across Grounds, skills sessions led by industry experts, roundtable discussions on a variety of data science topics, and more.

The University of Virginia Data Science Institute began Datapalooza to showcase and connect data science research happening across UVA Grounds. It has since expanded to highlight research and industry work happening around the region, helping people in the data science community make connections and expand their knowledge.

datapalooza 2017Datapalooza represents a core value of the UVA Data Science Institute - fostering collaboration and engagement in data science research, education and industry communities at the University of Virginia, in Charlottesville, across the U.S., and around the world.

We want to connect with you, and we want to help you connect with the data science community.

From job leads, to research collaborations and academic opportunities, Datapalooza 2017 attendees left the conference last year energized and immersed data science, according to a follow-up survey conducted by the DSI.
