What to expect:

eLUCID8 is a conference designed to connect people interested in data science and human behavior, both within and outside the University of Wisconsin-Madison. eLUCID8 provides a venue for presenting or hearing about new research, for learning about particular problems or challenges faced by applications of this research to contemporary real-world problems, and for brainstorming new opportunities for basic and applied research.

The meeting will feature:

– a series of talks from LUCID, UW faculty and partners from industry, non-profits and government agencies
– a data blitz and short-format talk sequence
– Keynote talk from Jordan Ellenberg, author of How to Not be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking
– Keynote talk from Patrick Shafto, professor of mathematics and computer science at Rutgers University
– Keynote talk from Bob Mankoff humor and cartoon editor of the Esquire and co-founder of Botnik Studios
– Sessions including: What’s causing the diversity crisis in data science; Understanding science denialism; Connecting data science and human behavior; and Exploring human and machine collaboration.

The event is free for presenters and attendees alike, and is funded by the LUCID graduate training program as part of the NSF’s National Research Traineeship program. It will be held at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, Madison WI, on August 5th at the Education Building in the Wisconsin Ideas Room on August 6th and 7th.

Data Blitz in Human Behavior Research

This session will be 8 short talks from Psychology Research Experience Program (PREP) alumni. PREP provides mentoring and experience in scientific research to undergraduates from historically underrepresented populations and first generation college students who have an interest in a career in scientific psychology.

Hot off the Press: New Data Science & Human Behavior Research

This session will be 8 short talks from current students in Psychology Research Experience Program (PREP). PREP provides mentoring and experience in scientific research to undergraduates from historically underrepresented populations and first generation college students who have an interest in a career in scientific psychology.

What’s Causing the Diversity Crisis in Data Science?

This panel will discuss Diversity Crisis in STEM fields, specifically Data Science.

LUCID Speaks: Connecting Data Science & Human Behavior

Hear from our LUCID students and faculty about current research and projects.

Data Science in the Wild: Allying Research with Government and Industry

We invited research partners in industry, government, non-profit agencies and non-traditional research collaborators to speak about collaborative research projects.

Understanding Science Denialism

This panel will have experts in science communication discussing best practices in communicating research that can polarize audiences.

LUCID Talks: Exploring Human and Machine Collaboration

Hear from our LUCID students and faculty about current research and projects.

Stay tuned for announcements on speakers for our sessions!
