The National Consortium for Data Science (NCDS) is pleased to give students the opportunity to present their research posters at the NCDS Data Innovation Showcase Thursday, May 21, at RENCI, the Renaissance Computing Institute in Chapel Hill, NC. The Student Poster Session will give students in data science, informatics, information science, and related fields the chance to highlight their work on a 24×36 printed poster. The posters will be on display all day long, and students will be expected to be available to talk about their work during official poster sessions in the morning (8:30 am – 9 :30 am) and at lunchtime (11:30 am – 1 pm).

The Poster Session is open to current graduate and undergraduate students at NCDS founding member academic institutions. This includes UNC Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, Duke University, UNC Charlotte, Texas A & M University, and Drexel University. Posters should address novel, interesting and innovative approaches to data science research questions. Topics could include (but are not limited to) data discovery, sharing, security or archiving, data-intensive computing, data analysis techniques, data management, or strategies for handling big data and heterogeneous/unstructured data. Submissions by teams of students are acceptable (limit one submission per team). Some travel support will be available to students traveling in from outside of the triangle area to attend the Data Innovation Showcase.
