Innovation Awards on Data Science for Policy

 

London Innovation Society (LIS) is organizing Innovation Awards event for research students and young researchers in collaboration with dataforpolicy.org at the prestigious Data for Policy Conference "Frontiers of Data Science for Government" which will be held at University of Cambridge on 15-16 September 2016. All early career research submissions at the conference will be considered for these awards. Shortlisted candidates for this unique competition will have the chance to present their research to a selected delegation from top international universities, government bodies, non-profit organisations and private businesses. There will be monetary awards to the first three places in the competition.

To enter this poster competition, we invite all researchers working on data science with policy implications to make standard submissions to the conference. Please note that the standard practice will be to consider all submissions for oral presentations first, but if you wish to be considered only for the poster sessions then please indicate this at the top of your submission.
