[ANNOUNCEMENT] Data Science for Public Policy: Applications & Experiences

 

We are inviting faculty, researchers, and students to a public forum titled “Data Science for Public Policy: Applications and Experiences on the 19th of April 2018, 1:30-3:30 PM at the UP CIDS. This forum is part of the CIDS Data Science for Public Policy Program’s series of fora and workshops running from April to September 2018.

The Data Science for Public Policy Program is among the initiatives of the UP Center for Integrative and Development Studies (UP CIDS) of the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Program aims to feature the work of the UP community in data science as applied to challenges in public policy and governance. In relation to this, the Program endeavors to build and engage a community of faculty and encourage the pursuit of interdisciplinary problem-oriented research using high-level quantitative analyses. Other objectives include organizing multidisciplinary teams with social scientists, humanists, and scientists to conduct research on issues in the public sector.

There will be 5 studies featured in this forum where each panelist will discuss their work, and engage the audience in discussion. Please see attached files for the programme.

The forum is free of charge. There are limited slots available. We encourage you to register by sending an email to [email protected] on or before April 17, 2018 (Tuesday).
