Topology for Data Science: A Workshop for Undergraduates
Dear T4DS Participants,
Due to the escalating concerns for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the T4DS team has decided to postpone T4DS until Fall 2020. The registered participants represent 19 states and three foreign countries, and the organizers do not want to bring additional risks to our community or to yours.
Once we have finalized a new date for T4DS, we will contact you. If you are available, you will be offered a slot in the rescheduled workshop. We will try our best to honor the travel awards that were already offered, and more details on that will follow once the new date is confirmed.
Thank you for your excitement for our workshop, and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!
On March 25, 2020, the day-long Topology for Data Science (T4DS) pre-conference workshop will take 50 undergraduates on a tour of the data cycle, from the perspective of a topologist. The workshop will comprise four Carpentries-style episodes. The day will conclude with a reception, where a panel of four faculty members representing topology and data science will discuss their experiences with including undergraduates in research and potential career opportunities in data science. After the panel, the students, panelists, volunteers, and organizers will be able to freely network.
This workshop is supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. NSF 1955925.
