Dear Colleagues,

Big data have developed at an astonishing speed in just the past few years. We are increasingly overwhelmed by big data from everywhere in our lives, including social media, health, bioinformatics, business transactions, and transportation. Such data offer golden opportunities for scientists to develop new tools, new methods, and new theories. Big data provide untapped potential for discovering and analyzing dynamic human behavior, business trends, disease outbreaks, traffic patterns, urban dynamics, and climate change trends.

The SDSU Big Data Science Program Initiative Steering Committee is hosting a lightning talk series with two forums on March 7, 2015 (Saturday from 11am – 01:30pm), entitled “Big Data Science at SDSU”. The talks and forum will bring together SDSU big data colleagues from multiple disciplines, and in particular, the four Areas of Excellence (Human Dynamics in the Mobile Age, Climate and Sustainability Studies, Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience, and Viral Information Institute). It is expected that the SDSU big data experts will show how to process and analyze big data.

If your research projects use or analyze Big Data, please join these lightning talks and forum on March 7. Email your lightning talk topic and abstract (200 word limit) to by March 1, 2015. We will follow up with your email about the details and arrangement of the talks and forum.
