2018 SCHOLARS@DUKE VISUALIZATION CHALLENGE [For Duke Faculty/Students Only]
After the successes of last year’s visualization challenge, Scholars@Duke (https://scholars.duke.edu) lays down the gauntlet yet again with another challenge. As before, Scholars@Duke is making data available, and this year so is The Graduate School.
The overall theme this year is to represent the “interdisciplinarity” of Duke’s education and research activities.
A little about the data. The dataset contains information about published items and authors. The data encompasses bibliographical information and abstracts, publication venue (including journals and conferences), and a co-authorship network, faculty appointments and memberships. New data this year comes from The Graduate School and lists faculty members of PhD dissertation committees for students completing PhDs in the past five years. Students’ identifiers have been removed.
Deadline: Jan. 15, 2018
Prizes: First Prize – $500, Second Prize – $250, and Third Prize – $100. Entries to the special challenge will be part of the Duke Research Computing Symposium poster session to be held at the Penn Pavilion at the symposium on January 22, 2018.
