  • Panel of experts from industry on “adoption of fundamental data science methodology in industry – trends and needs” [1 hour]

  • Poster session: one per institute, sketching the range of activities undertaken by that institution, in research / education / outreach. [1.25 hours]  
    Posters will be available for browsing in throughout the meeting.

Panel Nominations:

If you wish to be a panelist in the “major challenges” panel, please submit a 200-word abstract to the meeting co-chairs by 5/20/21. (If we receive more nominations than there are slots, a selection process involving all currently-funded TRIPODS institutes will be conducted.)

Panelists in the “industry” panel should be industry affiliates of a currently funded TRIPODS institute, or possibly members of an institute with a joint academic-industry appointment. Please mail your suggestions to the organizers, with a few words on what topics the nominee could cover.

Poster Submission: 

Please submit your poster (one per institute) in advance of the meeting.
