The first-annual New York Scientific Data Summit (NYSDS) is a no-fee meeting that aims to accelerate data-driven discovery and innovation by bringing together researchers, developers and end-users from academia, industry, utilities and state and federal governments. Jointly organized by Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), Stony Brook University (SBU) and New York University (NYU), this year’s NYSDS conference will take place from August 2 to 5, 2015, at New York University in Manhattan.
The 2015 theme is “Frontiers in Scientific Data.” With keynote speakers from industry and international big-science projects, the two and one-half day conference is organized into five sessions with topics including scientific image analysis, data fusion, environmental and urban science, and inverse problems.
Sponsors include BNL, the Institute for Advanced Computational Science at SBU, the NYSTAR High-Performance Computing Consortium (HPC2), the New York University Center for Data Science, and the Moore-Sloan Data Science Environment.

“Establishing the annual NYSDS conference is an important part of the recently announced Computational Science Initiative (CSI) at BNL. This is an opportunity to grow computational science as one of our recognized core capabilities to serve the growing science and engineering missions of Brookhaven and the various programs and missions of the Department of Energy,” said Robert Harrison, Director, of the Computational Sciences Center at Brookhaven National Laboratory. “There is an enormous amount of untapped synergy, both intellectual and technical, among all of these programs. The Center, along with the NYSDS15, will serve as an organizational umbrella to realize opportunities for partnership that translate into untapped growth potential and showcase our capabilities to the outside world.”
