The daylong conference went 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. in the Burton Morgan Center (MRGN) 121 and was open free to Purdue University students, faculty, staff, and individuals in industry who work in data science. Registration was required. Breakfast, lunch, and a networking reception were available (please list any dietary restrictions via the registration form).
We had an exciting lineup of keynote, talks by distinguished faculty and industry experts, a workshop session on data visualization, a panel discussion on Data Ethics, and poster presentations by students. In conjunction with dozens of other WiDS events worldwide, we livestreamed some of the Stanford events, which, hopefully, made for a unique and collaborative conference experience. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, we were able to organize this free event to our community here at Purdue.
