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; Data: Cautions, Questions, and Answers; Data and Publications; and Data: Life Cycles and Predictions for the Future.
Don’t miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to learn most everything you want to know about leveraging data but haven’t had the time to learn!
