IMS will be engaging in joint activities with ACM, addressing the dynamic field of Data Science. As an initial event, the ACM–IMS Interdisciplinary Summit on the Foundations of Data Science will be held June 15, 2019, in San Francisco. The event will bring together luminaries from Computing and Statistics for keynotes and panels on important topics in Data Science, such as fairness, privacy, ethics, causal inference, deep learning, and reinforcement learning, in addition to discussions about the future of Data Science and the role of ACM and IMS.
