Toronto Data Workshop

A weekly hour-long discussion about data collection; data cleaning; and data storage, retrieval, dissemination, and protection in academia and industry. All welcome! Sign up here.

Overview

The Toronto Data Workshop (TDW) brings together researchers from many academic disciplines and industry to collectively consider, collate, share, and disseminate best practices in the critical initial steps in a data science project: data collection; data cleaning; and data storage, retrieval, dissemination, and protection.

All welcome! Sign up here.

The current organising committee is: Faria Khandaker, Kelly Lyons, and Rohan Alexander.

Since Fall 2019, our multidisciplinary workshop has brought together academic and industry participants to share what we do in these crucial, yet little discussed, stages of working with data and share data best practices. We meet weekly for an hour and aim to have a roughly even split of participants from academia and industry over the course of each term. Participants come from many fields, including financial tech, digital humanities, and healthcare information, among others.

Anyone is welcome to attend - you don’t need to be affiliated with the university.

We thank Dean Wendy Duff and the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto, for support for this workshop.
