Bayes Comp 2020

Bayes Comp is a biennial conference sponsored by the ISBA section of the same name. The conference and the section both aim to promote original research into computational methods for inference and decision making and to encourage the use of frontier computational tools among practitioners, the development of adapted software, languages, platforms, and dedicated machines, and to translate and disseminate methods developed in other disciplines among statisticians. This year, the UF Informatics Institute and Department of Statistics have partnered with ISBA to host this wonderful annual conference.


Computational Biomedicine Conference

A primary goal of the CBM 2019 is to bring together scientists, engineers, mathematicians and patricians from a variety of related disciplines, to exchange ideas and present original research results in the theory and applications of computational biomedicine. It is hoped that most countries will have a delegation to participate this event. The conference will be composed of featured symposia, plenary lectures, invited sessions, and contributed sessions.

The Fifth International Conference on Computational Biomedicine will take place on February 7-8, 2019 (Thursday-Friday) at the J. Wayne Reitz Union, Room 2365, on the campus of the University of Florida, in Gainesville, Florida. CBM will offer an excellent forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of computational bio from all over the world. For more information, visit

Enabling Data Reproducibility and Sustainability Symposium

DSI Symposium

Data Science and Information (DSI) is a multi- and inter-disciplinary student organization dedicated to celebrating and promoting Data Science at the University of Florida. DSI is partnered with the UF Informatics Institute to share in their mission of fostering research and educational studies in order to raise the preeminence of UF. To accomplish this mission, DSI hosts workshops throughout the year and its annual symposium in mid-March at the J. Wayne Reitz Union on the UF campus. The symposium includes speakers from a wide range of research fields at UF in three breakout sessions of four speakers each. Learn about computer vision, bioinformatics, political forecasting, business analytics, and more. The symposium also includes two rounds of workshops with several choices in each round- such as Python, data visualization, and machine learning. For more information, visit
