Important Update: All Hubs Summit 2020

In light of COVID-19 and emerging guidance impacting our Hub coordinating institutions, we will be postponing our All Hubs Summit originally scheduled for May 2020. The Hubs and our local host partners in Columbus, Ohio are currently identifying future dates for this event, and we will be sharing updates through our newsletters, websites, and social media. We appreciate your continued enthusiasm for our inaugural Summit and look forward to ensuring a successful community event.

To help encourage deeper exploration and the development of collaborative data science innovations, the WiDS Datathon Committee and the National Science Foundation Big Data Innovation Hubs are hosting a second phase of the WiDS Datathon this year—with a new WiDS Datathon Excellence in Research Award. Participants may continue to submit research papers through April 30, 2020, 11:59pm PT.
