Over the April 19-21 weekend, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics will be hosting a data analysis challenge open to all UNM undergraduate and graduate students. The event is called DataFest, and the premise is that students work in teams on a surprise data analysis challenge over a 48-hour period and present their findings at the end. Then, a panel of judges from a variety of fields determine winners in various categories.

 
The competition is for undergraduate and graduate students as separate groups.  However, interested graduate students are also welcome to stop by and help mentor and guide teams, or participate as judges.  I am also recruiting faculty to serve as judges. Please feel free to direct any students or faculty with questions to me.
