We welcome professionals who work in data-related fields, as well as academics and researchers, to join us as VIP Consultants. We will provide you with some information about the data challenge before your arrival. Once you arrive, we hope you’ll enjoy wandering the room and dispensing wisdom and advice. You’ll also find that DataFestTM is a great place to scout future talent! Where else can you observe students working with a team on a real problem under intense deadline pressure?

Visiting DataFestTM will be fun and relaxing, as we strive to keep the mood light. However, if you do sign up for a time, please notify us if you must make any changes or if you cannot come. Students often pay attention to when people from particular companies visit, and we also must ensure the number of people in the hall does not exceed the capacity.

To sign up to visit DataFest, please fill out the brief form at this link.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact Rob Gould at
