Welcome to the home of the South Big Data Regional Innovation Hub
August - November 2017
The goal of this series of webinars and workshops is to garner community input into pathways for keeping data science as a discipline broadly inclusive. We seek input from data science programs in any region across the nation, either traditional or alternative, and from a range of institution types including minority-serving institutions, community colleges, liberal arts colleges, tribal colleges, universities, and industry partners. The series consists of two webinars leading up to a workshop exploring the future of data science education and workforce at institutions of higher learning that are primarily teaching-focused. A follow-up webinar will be planned after the workshop to report on outcomes and plans. Program committee members were chosen to represent a broad spectrum of communities with a diversity of geography (West, Northeast, Midwest, and South), discipline (CS. Math, Stats, Domains), as well as institution type (MSI's, CC's, 4-year colleges, tribal colleges, and universities).The series is co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the South Big Data Innovation Hub, and the Georgia Tech Institute for Data Engineering and Science.

ABOUT THE HUB
Big Data is a prominent, rapidly emerging discipline with far-reaching scientific and economic potential, yet there remains a gap in the translation of BD research findings into economic growth and end-user impact. To exploit the full potential of BD, the NSF hubs endeavor to foster innovation through collaboration, diversity, education, and workforce development.
