Center for Business Analytics to host Data Science Symposium on Nov. 8

Participants to hear from experts, attend breakout sessions and network with industry peers

The UC Center for Business Analytics will host Data Science Symposium 2022 on Nov. 8 at the Carl H. Lindner College of Business. The Symposium focuses on analytics and data science content to support the growth and development of analytics efforts in business, government and non-profit organizations.

The in-person, all-day event includes three keynote speakers and two 60-minute Tech Talk breakout sessions, with four presentations in each session. A pair of 35-minute networking receptions are built into the agenda as well.

Data Science Symposium 2022 culminates with a networking reception in the Lindner Hall atrium, where appetizers and a hosted bar are available. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and reception food and drink are included in the registration fee.

“The Data Science Symposium showcases keynotes and presentations focused on advances in methodologies, tools, and technologies in data science. This equips leaders and practitioners with the most up-to-date industry trends to drive their data science efforts to success,” said Glenn Wegryn, executive director, Center for Business Analytics. “This is the first in-person Symposium since 2019, and though the Center provided virtual events in the interim, nothing can really replace when folks can get together in person to network and learn from each other.”

All current full-time students and faculty are welcome. Please email Larry Porter to receive the academic discount code. 

Exhibiting at the Data Science Symposium will be Lindner’s Graduate Programs Office, promoting its master’s in business analytics program; UC Online (master’s in business analytics and information systems); and the UC Advanced Research Computing center.
