9:00am to 4:30pm

In this workshop we will look at the data driven process end-to-end, delving into different stages of the work flow, from data collection to data management to analytics to visualization, to learn about how people approached different challenges; what tools they used; to hear perspectives from different domains and applications; and to identify some emerging best practices.
During the day we will look at a series of case studies and will invite speakers to start by presenting findings (what were the insights?), and then walk us through the steps in their data pipeline process, the tools they used and tested, and the challenges they ran into at different stages. Demos and visualizations encouraged.
