Data Science Workshop Series

Data Science Workshop Series brings together researchers, academics and students from across the University to showcase how Data Science can support our strategic goals.

DS4 Workshop Series

The 'Data Science for ...' series of workshops aims to fulfill our commitment to raise Data Science awareness and foster relevant collaborations addressing pressing societal challenges. The one day workshops are planned around the central theme of Data Science in the service of the University's strategy. In each edition we set one of the strategic goals of the University as a focus area, and invite researchers, academics, and students from across the University to showcase their work and ideas on the topic to raise awareness and generate conversations and collaborations.   

Upcoming workshops

Mental health refers to an individual's capacity to feel, think, and act in ways to achieve a better quality of life while respecting personal, social, and cultural boundaries [Wikipedia]. In recent years poor mental health has become a global concern, with about 970 million people worldwide suffering from a mental disorder in 2019, most commonly anxiety and depression. Understanding the phenomenon and tackling the challenge of the globally worsening wellbeing is a priority. It is a complex problem since mental health is influenced by a range of biological, demographic and environmental factors, and therefore, we hope to bring together students and researchers from across a range of disciplines, to explore the application and applicability of Data Science in this area.

This workshop will take place on Monday the 11th of March 2024 in the Bayes Centre. If you would like to participate, you can sign up here [DS4MHW Registration - Microsoft Form]. Please note this is a participatory workshop, and we strongly encourage you to present your work, progress, or ideas, to get the most of the day! We will publish the agenda closer to the date.
