Are you interested in data wrangling, analysis, and presentation design? This year CBE’s Research School of Finance, Actuarial Studies and Statistics will be holding an American Statistical Association Datafest, where teams of 2-5 ANU undergraduate students will work with a real-world dataset during a 48-hour period in a friendly festival of data.

The Datafest will be held from 12-14 April, and teams can be formed by COB Friday 9 April.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the event will be held online. This is a fantastic opportunity to join the data science community to find and share meaning in a large, rich, and complex data set.
