Data Science Tea

Tea, refreshments and informal technical conversations about topics in data science.  It is usually held at 4pm on Tuesdays in rm 151 in the Computer Science Building.


The format of this time can take on multiple forms:

  • poster session
  • one speaker for the hour
  • multiple speakers with about 10-minute presentations 
  • ...or, the most fun and chaotic: Presenters are simply at the whiteboard, talking about their latest idea informally while writing on the white board, with 10-15 people gathered around them standing.
