Brown Institute for Media Innovation, Columbia University, 2950 Broadway, New York

The Brown Institute is proud to host a day devoted to public data. It is designed for students in journalism, statistics and data science -- essentially anyone who has an interest in understanding their neighborhoods, their cities, their state and even the nation through data. Throughout the day, students will learn about what data are available and why. What might be missing and why. And how data are used to answer hard questions about who we are and how we live. The day is divided between data publishers and consumers, ending with a panel specifically designed for journalists.

The event is free and open to the public, but Columbia affiliates (particularly students) are prioritized. Non-affiliates will be notified of their registration status a week ahead of the event.
