2021 ADSA Annual Meeting — “Transfer Power of Data Science”
Dates: November 10-12, 2021
Location: Savannah, GA ~ with hybrid option
Call for SubmissionsDeadline to Submit: June 28, 2021 >>> Notification by August 2, 2021

The Academic Data Science Alliance Annual Meeting supports data science practitioners (students, postdocs, staff researchers and faculty), administrators, and educators to collectively address common issues in research, education and training, program administration, and advocacy for data scientist career paths in higher education. Recognizing that researchers in all fields can contribute to the evolution of data science, the Annual Meeting provides a domain-agnostic venue for presenting new data science research and pedagogy.

The theme for this year’s ADSA Annual Meeting is the “Transfer Power of Data Science.” Data and data workflows have the power to support new discoveries across many different fields of inquiry. And while crossover to other disciplines is itself powerful, we encourage you to interpret the "transfer power" of data science from many different perspectives: Have you modified code and workflows from a very different domain to advance research in your field? What methods, tools, and best practices do you employ to maximize transferability of your work to other contexts or in other domains? Has your work shifted power from those traditionally in power to those who have been marginalized by data-driven products? Does your work increase power equity with collaborative participation in data science across traditional hierarchies or from the wider community (citizen science, community engagement)? 

These topics will be the focus of the upcoming annual meeting, and presentations are being invited in the following formats:

  • Breakout/Birds-of-a-Feather/Panel (1.5h) - Structured discussion focused around a single topic. May include brief presentations (as with a panel). Session proposer will be responsible for framing the topic with a short presentation and initiating discussion. Please list panelists and speakers in the "Key Elements" section of the form.
  • Demo/Tutorial/Performance Art (40 min) - Presentation or interactive session introducing a tool/method/etc. or data-inspired performance. These sessions will be paired to fill a single 1.5 hour time slot.
  • Research Talk, in-person or virtual (20 min) - Presentation of recent data science research. Research Talks will be grouped by topic area into 1.5 hour blocks with time for Q&A.
  • Poster - Posters will be presented on Wednesday, November 10 - the joint meeting day with the Data Science Leadership Summit.

The ADSA Annual Meeting is being held in coordination with the 2021 Data Science Leadership Summit (November 8-10), which convenes leaders of data science programs and faculty interested in creating new initiatives on their campuses: to form an academic leadership community for data science; to share best practices where they face similar challenges and opportunities; and to take collective responsibility in preparing next-generation data scientists to contribute in the best interests of society.
