Love Data Week 2020 Kicks off Next Week

Next week is Love Data Week, an international event meant to celebrate and educate about data. Each day next week, look for a new blog post highlighting a data-related resource available to the UC San Diego community.

The UC San Diego Library will be offering two in-person events during Love Data Week:

Data Privacy News and You (CANCELLED*)
Tuesday, February 11, 3-4 PM

Campus Privacy Officer Pegah Parsi will talk about recent data privacy news, how these issues may impact you, and what you can do to engage and protect yourself.

*Unfortunately, due to unforeseen flight cancellations, the speaker for this event is unable to return to campus in time to speak at Tuesday’s event. Our sincerest apologies for the cancellation of this event. 

Data and the UC San Diego Community
Thursday, February 13, 2-3 PM

Cybersecurity Awareness Program Coordinator Ronise Zenon will talk about data concerns specific to UC San Diego affiliates, including tips and resources to help you protect your data. We will also discuss ways to ensure that data of individuals served by the university is also protected by focusing on care and respect. Registration for this event is required and now open.

Both events will take place in Geisel Library’s Seuss Room on the 2nd (main) Floor. 

In addition, the Library, along with numerous campus partners, is co-hosting the two-day Cultured Data Symposium, which brings together local, regional, and national experts from both data science and the arts and humanities arena to examine the emerging relationship between data and culture. The symposium will be hosted on campus at the Qualcomm Institute on Friday, February 7 and on Saturday, February 8 at Bread & Salt in Barrio Logan. Registration for the symposium is closed. If spots open up, walk-ins will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
