Description: 

You are invited to participate in eLUCID8 2017, a conference designed to connect people interested in data science and human behavior, both within and outside the university. eLUCID8 provides a venue for presenting or hearing about new research, for learning about particular problems or challenges faced by applications of this research to contemporary real-world problems, and for brainstorming new opportunities for basic and applied research. The meeting will feature:

  • a series of talks from UW faculty and partners
  • a data blitz and short-format talk sequence
  • a poster session
  • small-group breakouts for spitballing new projects
  • Keynote talks by Bob Mankoff (cartoon editor of the New Yorker) and Mike Mozer (Departments of Computer Science and Cognitive Science, UC Boulder)

The event is free for presenters and attendees alike, and is funded by the LUCID graduate training program as part of the NSF's National Research Traineeship program.

To indicate your interest in attending or presenting a poster, short talk, or long talk, and to help us plan for appropriate numbers, please complete the very short registration form here:  lucid.wisc.edu/eLUCID8
