Data Science Poster Fair

We invite you to attend the annual Data Science Poster Fair! This year's event will be held virtually via Zoom on Friday, April 23 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Every year, data science M.S. students present their capstone projects during this event. This year, research preview videos have been posted below so attendees can view and plan their participation during the virtual event. Attendees will have the ability to move between breakout rooms as they please. In order to do so attendees will need to have the Zoom version 5.3 or later.

The poster fair is open to the public and all interested undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, staff, faculty, and industry professionals are encouraged to attend.  This event will be offered via a single Zoom session with 4 parallel sessions organized into 5 quarter-hour time slots.  Each parallel session will be in a separate Breakout Room within the same main Zoom session.  If you have Zoom version 5.3 or later, you will be able to move between breakout rooms at will.  Each presenter has already submitted a video on their project.  We urge you to view the videos in advance. Click on the title of each project in the table below to find the abstract and a link to the video. During the live event, the Zoom host will be a moderator who can help with logistical problems.  The moderator can be contacted via the Chat function or by returning to the main Zoom room.
