I-CHASS and OAS/ARTCA Announce Details for Summer Institute in Data Science

Posted on Jan 7, 2013 | No Comments

Organized in partnership with the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Advanced Research and Technology Collaboratory for the Americas (ARTCA), the NSF-funded Pan-American Advanced Studies Institute (PASI) will take place at the Universidad del Valle de Guatemala, East of Guatemala City from July 15 through July 26, 2013 to offer training on Methods of Computation-Based Discovery (CBD) to about 40 participants from all over the Americas. The PASI will target young researchers, graduate students, post docs and junior faculty whose research will benefit from CBD, or in other words, research involving large and or highly complex data sets generated to study large scale problems.

Over a ten-day period, participants will gain foundational knowledge and skills in data science as prominent researchers will share methods and techniques for CBD and participants explore sample data sets during hands-on laboratory sessions.

Overall, the PASI is expected to help foster new collaborations and cross-disciplinary research networks for teams to work on problems and research challenges of shared concern. United States and Latin American researchers will be expected to work together, adding a cultural dimension to thinking about research with complex data using CDB methods.

The deadline to apply for the PASI is April 10, 2013.
