As part of the “Big Data Conference Organizing Committee” (Ad-hoc committee) in 2017, I worked with committee chair Dr. Tom Weirich and other members to manage the logistics of the conference as well as invite various industry speakers. The goal of the committee was to decide upon the agenda of a conference that was held on September 22, 2017, to commemorate the opening day for renovated Grawn Hall. A follow up to this event was also held in Spring 2018 was successful in promoting Data Analytics Agenda.
I organized the following Data Analytics Conference again in Spring 2020. The event was (held on February 28, 2020. My co-chairs for this event were Dr. Kumar and Mr. Steve Tracy. Firms like PwC, Stryker, Google, Dow and Priority Health participated in the conference.
