2023 NextGen Data Science Day Conference

The NextGen Committee of the New England Statistical Society (NESS) is pleased to announce the 2023 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. Eve Pickering, the VP and Head of Non-clinical Statistics at Pfizer, and Dr. Nathan Carter, the Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Bentley University!

Whether you are someone who is trying to understand the field and the associated opportunities better 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 hosted in-person on the UConn Storrs campus, with a virtual option through Whova for attendees who cannot attend in person. It will feature a special workshop on large language models (eg. ChatGPT and Bard) in practice and 2 panel discussions (“What data scientists do” and “Career in data science”) throughout the day. 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 sponsor companies.

We look forward to your participation, and please help us spread the word. For any inquiries, please contact NextGen at nextgen@nestat.org
