The University of Iowa, a pioneer in Informatics research, will host a data science institute featuring a number of mini-classes the week of January 9-12, 2018. The workshop is a collaborative effort between the Iowa Social Science Research Center (ISRC) and the Iowa Informatics Initiative (UI3). The institute will teach participants about the basic building blocks of coding as applied in the fields of the Biological, Physical, Social Sciences, and Digital Humanities.

Over 120 student developers, designers, and data enthusiasts from across the United States gathered last September to participate in the University of Iowa’s 2nd Midwest Big Data Hackathon.

Groups of four students per team, spanning over fifteen universities, contributed to a non-stop, two-day project “hacking” web, mobile, desktop, or hardware applications.

The Midwest Big Data Hackathon is being organized at the University of Iowa on September 16-17, 2017, in the Second Floor Ballroom, Iowa Memorial Union Ballroom. The event is open to all university students who have a passion for creating things with technology. 

Date, Time & Location: Wednesday, September 13, from 11:00AM - 1:00PM, 330 South Madison Street

All university faculty and staff members are welcome to come to the Engineering Research Facility and experience firsthand its state-of-the-art facilities, explore the virtual world, and talk with our expert researchers. If you have a project idea dealing with VR, this would be a great time to discuss and perhaps meet others with similar interests.
