DataFest is a data analysis competition where students are presented with a large, complex data set and work over the weekend to explore, analyze, and present their findings. Teams of 3-5 students work together and compete against other teams from Connecticut College, Yale, UConn, Trinity and Wesleyan. Prizes for best insight, best visualization, and best use of external data are awarded. Under the auspices of the American Statistical Association, the event is organized by the Quantitative Analysis Center (QAC) and begins on Friday, April 8th 2016 at 6pm. You are free to work with the data around the clock until Sunday, April 10th at noon. We will conclude at roughly 5pm on Sunday. Meals etc. will be available for participating students and advisers/consultants throughout the weekend.
THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS MARCH 1st.
