Register for the poster session at the IDIES symposium

The Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science hosts this symposium that will bring together expert practitioners from all divisions of Johns Hopkins University, government, and industry to discuss their latest discoveries, practical ideas, and insights in big data.

The IDIES symposium will provide an ideal opportunity for attendees with an interest in a multidisciplinary approach to big data to meet and collaborate. The symposium will include a poster session, allowing participants to share their work and encourage synergistic discussion. The symposium, scheduled from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 16, will include morning and afternoon poster sessions. The morning poster session is from 11:30 a.m. to noon; the afternoon poster session begins at 4 p.m. The symposium will be held in Mudd Hall Commons, Homewood campus.

The poster session is a great way to share new research and collaborate with fellow IDIES affiliates.
