Emerging Data Science Methods for Complex Biomedical and Cyber Data

We cordially invite you to participate in the 2nd annual workshop held at the Georgia Cyber Center Hull McKnight Building on October 14-15, 2021.

The workshop features several eminent speakers who are pioneers in the fields of data science including big data analytics. The workshop aims to foster the collaborative research between data science/statistics and other disciplinary science for the purpose of meeting the very hardest and most important data and model-driven scientific challenges, and for enhancing the much-needed skills of the next generation workforce. 

The workshop is financially supported by the National Science Foundation, Augusta University Office of SVP for Research, Augusta University School of Computer and Cyber Sciences and co-sponsored by ASA Georgia Chapter, CWS, IMS, ISI, JCW-Math, SAMSI, SRCOS and the Journal of Applied Statistics.
