Moderator: Aleksandra Slavkovic (Pennsylvania State University) ||| Panelists: Anand Sarwate (Rutgers University), Thomas Steinke (IBM Almaden), Bin Yu (UC Berkeley), and Yu-Xiang Wang (UC Santa Barbara)

Our panel starts with the following related questions:

  • When we talk about the “science of data analysis,” what different things might we mean?
  • In statistics and computer science there is a often a gap between theoretical models and applied methodology. In the context of the “science of data analysis” how might we bridge this gap?

We have two concrete examples in which to think about these questions.

If you have other ideas/examples/questions that you would like to see addressed by the panel, please email Aleksandra Slavkovic (sesa at
