CCS holds four major annual events:
- Big Data Conference & Workshop
- Data Intersections: Data Journalism, Data Science and Digital Humanities
- Smart Cities Miami Conference
- VizUM annual Symposium
We also hold a Lunch & Learn series, as well as a variety of Workshops, Lectures, Community Outreach Events, Meetings, and Social Events. Please check the Upcoming Events list below for the next event.
This year’s Digital Humanities and Data Journalism Symposium (aka DHDJ 2017) was cancelled owing to Hurricane Irma. The event has now evolved into “Data Intersections: Data Journalism, Data Science and Digital Humanities”.
The second meeting of the CCS Social Systems Informatics Members will take place on Friday, 12/1 in the Abess Center from 3:00 to 5:30 PM. Please feel free to drop in during those hours . . .
On a newly added Day 2, the Big Data Conference dives deeper into the topics explored in Day 1, specifically on building data science competence at your organization. This will be an interactive workshop . . .
This annual symposium brings together experts in systems biology, data science, drug discovery and translational medicine from academia, industry and government to present their latest research and exchange new ideas and approaches in data driven biomedical research.
This conference gathers leaders in academia, professional practice, and industry to examine the Smart Cities phenomenon in relation to emerging trends and technology. This year’s topics TBA soon . . .
