DataX:  Data Science at Princeton

Call for Workshop Proposals

Deadline to Apply:  November 1, 2019

With the support of a major gift from Eric Schmidt ’76, his wife Wendy and the Schmidt Futures Foundation, the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning (CSML) is pleased to sponsor workshops on Data Science at Princeton.

This call seeks to support innovative and collaborative workshops in data science and machine learning aimed at accelerating scientific discovery across Princeton University. Our objective is to fund transformative inter-disciplinary workshops or events with high potential for subsequent impact on the broad research community.

To achieve these ends, we invite workshop proposals based on a diversity of intellectual approaches and personal backgrounds.  

Tenured and tenure-track Princeton faculty are invited to apply. Groups of postdoctoral fellows and/or graduate students are also encouraged to apply with faculty sponsor support.

We hope to fund several workshops in the first year.


Types of Workshops

Across-Discipline Topics

  • Tutorial Workshop
  • Networks and Machine Learning
  • Mini-Course
  • Security and Privacy
  • Half or Full Day Conference
  • Chemical Synthesis and Machine Learning
  • Science-Based Hackathon

We are open to new and unconventional ways of organizing your program, as well as traditional formats.  We welcome small, medium and large events. CSML and DataX will provide administrative support, including securing rooms, coordinating catering, advertising and promoting the workshops on social media events calendars.
