Poster Awards

Sponsored by Two Sigma

At SLDS 2020, we will give out poster awards sponsored by Two Sigma. The poster award will be reviewed by an award committee co-chaired by Adam Rothman (, University of Minnesota) and Ali Shojaie (, University of Washington). The committee will consider both the quality of the presented statistics and data science research and the visual display of information.
