Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is offering data science graduate students and advanced undergraduate students the opportunity to join the Data Science Summer Institute (DSSI)

The Data Science Summer Institute (DSSI) is a flexible internship program that runs for 12 weeks during the summer. During these 12 weeks, students will be paired with mentors working in the Data Science fields. Students will also be supported by DSSI to enhance their skills by attending short courses and seminars on topics relevant to data science, and gain hands-on experience through collaborative work on other data science problems relating to national importance. DSSI is open to both advanced undergraduate and graduate students who are pursuing a degree in a field related to the Data Sciences (machine learning, statistics, applied mathematics, computer science, etc). 

The two Summer 2019 sessions will be held from May 20, 2019 - Aug. 9, 2019 and June 17, 2019 -  Sept. 6, 2019.

Data across disciplines: 7th International Symposium on Data Assimilation (ISDA 2019)

Jan. 21–24, 2019: This event in Kobe, Japan, will focus on the cross-cutting issues shared in broad applications of data assimilation in disciplines from geoscience to physical and biological sciences.

ISDAThe symposium aims to enhance discussions among researchers from cross- disciplinary backgrounds. Examples under discussion include: non-Gaussian and nonlinear data assimilation problems; Big Data Assimilation (BDA); high-performance computation (HPC); Uncertainty Quantification (UQ); advanced intelligence (AI) and machine learning; multi- scale and multi-component treatments; observational issues; and mathematical problems.

Application deadline is slated for October 2018, with speaker confirmation and program availability in November. Registration deadline will be in December 2018. See ISDA website for updates and more information.
