Data Science Hack Week in Dallas

There is still time to register for the ECS Data Science Hack Week program that will take place in Dallas, TX from May 26-29 at the 235th ECS Meeting, as the application deadline has been extended to April 15!

Perhaps you have already heard about this Hack Week event or read about data science in the latest issue of Interface magazine, but if you haven’t yet applied to take part in this extended workshop, now is your last chance.

Led by an experienced team of instructors with a mission to train the electrochemical community on the modern tools necessary to enhance your ability to analyze data and accelerate research progress, this program is something every researcher should consider attending. (more…)

Support the ECS Data Sciences Hack Week

ECS Data Science Hack WeekBuilding on the success of the first ECS Data Sciences Hack Day at the 232nd ECS Meeting this past October 2017, ECS is pleased to offer another opportunity at the 233rd ECS Meeting in Seattle this May.

ECS Data Sciences Hack Week is the Society’s foray into building an electrochemical data sciences and open source community from the ground up. Dataset sharing and open source software have transformed many “big science” areas such as astronomy, particle physics, synchrotron science, protein and genomic sciences, as well as computational sciences. The goal of this event is to increase awareness and impact of data science tools, open source software, and shared datasets in electrochemistry by bringing together people from different backgrounds to collaborate.

Data science tools and approaches have the potential to transform bench science like electrochemistry. The critical need is to build a community of electrochemical data scientists, the people who will contribute to a growing library of shared experimental and computational datasets, and who develop and adapt open source software tools.
