Case Study: Predicting Galaxy Spins (from Ivo Dinov)


We are delighted to announce the first workshop by the Data Science Education Community of Practice (DSECOP) to be held on June 22–24, 2022, at the Institute for Physical Science and Technology in College Park, MD.

The primary goal of this workshop is to develop a community of practice around incorporating data science into the undergraduate physics curriculum. This workshop will include lectures from faculty who are already engaged in this process and presentations from fellows in our program developing modules for inclusion in the existing curriculum. We also expect participation from the industry. There will be plenty of time for discussion and contributed talks.

Please fill in the application form to be considered for this workshop. Because of the interactive nature of this workshop, we expect in-person attendance.

Primary lodging will be at the dorms at the University of Maryland, conveniently located to the lectures. Lodging and meals will be $390 for the workshop.

We are looking forward to your participation in a mutually stimulating and productive DSECOP workshop!
