The TFoDS workshop will bring together computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians
to identify important research challenges that strengthen and broaden the mathematical, statistical, and algorithmic foundations of data science. Participants will discuss potential opportunities for collaboration between the relevant communities.
The objectives of the workshop are three-fold:
1. Identify fundamental areas in the emerging discipline of Data Science where collaboration between computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians is necessary to achieve significant progress.
2. Assess how collaboration between computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians could potentially contribute to workforce development by advancing and transforming the Data Science research training of Ph.D. students and postdocs.
3. Suggest different infrastructure modalities that could significantly promote and advance such collaborations.
