NextGen: Data Science Day (Saturday, November 7, 2020)

The NextGen Committee of the New England Statistical Society (NESS) is pleased to announce the 2020 NextGen Data Science Day (DSD) Conference.

NextGen seeks to support the next generation of statisticians and data scientists. We are excited to introduce you to the world of data science and statistics! In keeping with our mission, the Data Science Day will feature two distinguished keynote speakers Dr. Andrew Gelman and Dr. Rebecca Nugent

Whether you are someone who is trying to understand the field and the associated opportunities better or you are someone who is determined to get your dream job, or you are someone who is well versed with the field and is willing to join us and share some of your thoughts, there is something for everyone

This year, DSD will be virtual and will feature several panel discussions throughout the day. The theme of the morning panels is “Explore your options”. They will feature experts and professionals from various fields share their job finding experience and provide guidance on resume writing and leveraging LinkedIn. In the afternoon, the panel sessions are geared to help you “Understand the Jobs and their Impact”. Panelists from academia, government agencies, finance, start-ups, big-tech, insurance, pharmaceuticals will be there to introduce you to their world and answer your burning questions

Our NextGen DSD conference will provide a platform for you to present your work through poster presentations. Best posters will have a chance to win prizes! Furthermore, there will be opportunities to meet and interact with potential employers.
