Don't delay...registration ends Thursday, October 22!

Join thought leaders, practitioners, industry providers and colleagues for a
full day of programming devoted to leveraging data-perhaps the single-most
important skill that will define the next generation of leaders and future
directions in the information profession!  

 

Leveraging Data to Lead offers 12 twelve concurrent sessions featuring 36
speakers, 3 keynote addresses and 15 companies all focused on how to use
data to create value, enhance productivity and promote innovation!
Exhibits, lunch and multiple networking opportunities will round out this
information-packed day in which you will learn about what it takes to
succeed in today's data-driven workplaces!  

 

The day begins with keynotes from nationally-known thought leaders and
innovators:  Nancy Faget, Army Research Laboratory Data Wrangler; Richard
Huffine, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; and James King, Branch Chief
& Information Architect, National Institutes of Health Library.  

 

Throughout the remainder of the day you will hear from a broad spectrum of
information professionals who are applying the latest strategies in
leveraging data.   For example, you will learn such data essentials as what
kinds of insights can be gathered when we look at medical data and which
tools can be used.  Here is a sneak peek!

Glen A. Coppersmith, Scientist, Statistician, and Data Whisperer at Qntfy,
Johns Hopkins University and The Data Guild will demonstrate how the
ubiquity of social media provides a rich opportunity to enhance the data
available to mental health clinicians and researchers, enabling a
better-informed and better-equipped mental health field.  Lisa Federer,
Research Data Informationist at the National Institutes of Health will
provide an overview of the current state of "open science" and discuss how
librarians and information professionals can play an important role in the
sharing and reuse of research data, especially biomedical research.  

 

They join an impressive array of distinguished speakers discussing:  Using
Data for Social Media, Marketing, and Showing the Value of Your
Organization; Data Discoveries: Evolution, New Roles, and Powerful Tools;
Data in Academia; Jobs in Data Analytics; Impact Metrics and Data
Visualization; Data: Starting Points and Helpful Tools; Mapping Data: From
GIS to Policy; Open Government Data; Health, Science, and Technology Data;

you want to know about leveraging data but haven't had the time to learn!
