The Data Science Education Community of Practice (DSECOP) had its second workshop in June 26–28, 2023, at the University of Maryland, College Park.
Below are the slides made available by the speakers of our second workshop on incorporating data science in physics curriculum listed in the order of the schedule.
The Data Science Education Community of Practice (DSECOP) is thrilled to announce its second workshop, which will be held from June 26–28, 2023, at the University of Maryland, College Park.
This year, we aim to build on the success of our first workshop. Our primary focus is to continue developing a vibrant community of educators committed to incorporating data science into the undergraduate physics curriculum.
To achieve this goal, we plan to have thought-provoking lectures and presentations from faculty members who are already engaged in this process. We will also be showcasing the latest contributions from fellows in our program who are developing innovative modules for inclusion in the existing curriculum. Additionally, we are excited to welcome participation from industry professionals who can bring their unique perspectives.
We anticipate this to be a highly interactive workshop, with plenty of time for discussion and contributed talks from all participants. Here is the schedule of the workshop. Some of the topics we plan to cover in this workshop include:
We encourage all physics faculty teaching undergraduate physics to apply for this workshop. We also welcome graduate students, postdocs, industry professionals, and data science enthusiasts to apply. As with our first workshop, we expect in-person attendance as this event is highly interactive.
Because this workshop has limited space, we have an application process. Please fill in the application form to be considered. All participants have a non-refundable $75 registration fee. Applications received by April 14th at 5 PM ET will receive full consideration for contributed talks and financial support. We will notify you by April 21st when we make our decision.
Thanks to all participants who attended the first DSECOP workshop! Here’s a group photo taken on the second day.

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!
