Sustainability Data Science Conference

Main content start

Congratulations to the recipients of the Best Presentation Awards at the Sustainability Data Science Conference!

  • Anna Lukkarinen—Best Postdoc Presentation 
  • Mohammad Aljubran—Best Student Presentation 
  • Andy Huynh—Best Student Presentation-2nd place 

Date: April 5, 2024

Location: Stanford University, Gates Computer Science, Room 403 (Fujitsu Lounge)

Our planet is under continuous observation and simulation, producing an immense volume of data across multiple scales. Effectively utilizing this wealth of information is key to making informed decisions that will shape the future of our planet.

Stanford Data Science is planning a conference, bringing together Data Science and Sustainability communities to resolve sustainability challenges.
