The first Brown Unconference is a remote gathering which provides an opportunity for researchers across campus to come together and explore advances in computational sciences at the intersection of data science and AI with other sciences including biology, health, physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, neuroscience, computer science and cognitive science.
Our goal is to foster an accessible and welcoming environment open to members of the Brown community across all disciplines and levels of expertise. We want to celebrate Brown’s uniqueness and help foster collaborations across disciplines. Students and postdocs are especially encouraged to present their research to the broader community. The Unconference will include opportunities to meet researchers across scientific interests, hear from invited speakers, and receive feedback from diverse points of view.
We encourage submissions at all points of the scientific process.
Abstract Submission Deadline (Extended): June 22, 2020

We will host the following events distributed across the two days of the conference. Please find instructions on how to get involved in the next section. Add the brown unconference calendar to yours by subscribing here.
Lightning talks: 2-3 minute talks (2 slides max) – for those who may be in the early stages of their research, to introduce themselves, share their interests, pitch projects, or simply network with other members of the conference.
Short talks: 12 minute talks – for those ready to present their research in an informal setup. Presented research can be in progress and data can be preliminary.
Networking & Mind Match: Tailored social and networking programming. The unconference is a safe space to share ideas so feel free to send work in progress. Members of the Brown community from all academic backgrounds are encouraged to submit an abstract!
