Dear Professor Liu,
I am writing to let you know that American Statistical Associations (ASA)
DataFest 2019 will take place at Loyola University Chicago over the weekend
of March 29-March 31, 2019. Would you please share this event with your
students. All undergraduate and MS students are eligible to participate.
ASA DataFest is a data analysis challenge where students working in teams
(2-5 students) attack a large and complex surprise dataset over one
weekend. The event is sponsored by the ASA. The main goal of the
competition is to get students to collaborate (and compete) on a data
analysis question that is likely beyond the scope of what they see in their
classes. It is really a good practice for students. More details and
registration information can be found at
It is not necessary, but please let me know if your organization would be
interested co-sponsoring ASA DataFest 2019, contributing to the pool of
funds which will be used for prizes, t-shirts, food, etc. throughout the
event. All sponsors will be listed on the DataFest website and the
promotional materials (including T-shirts!). Thank you very much!
Xiaoli Kong, Ph.D.
Department of Mathematics and Statistics
