DataFest 2018 registration is now open, you can sign up at this link.! Seats are limited, don't wait till the last minute!
ASA DataFest is a data analysis competition where teams of up to five students attack a large, complex, and surprise dataset over a weekend. Your job is to represent your school by finding and communicating insights into these data. The teams that impress the judges will win prizes as well as glory for their school. Everyone will have a great experience, lots of food, and fun!
We'll have another fantastic dataset this year, along with a visit from our surprise client. In addition to being a great experience for honing your data analysis skills, DataFest is a wonderful networking/recruitment opportunity.
The competition is open to all undergraduate and MS students. PhD students are welcomed to participate as consultants, as well as PostDocs, faculty, and anyone else who is interested in providing consulting / mentoring throughout the event.
