The 2020 Yale Day of Data will be held virtually over two half-days, December 3 and 4.

This year's theme, "In the Service of Data," will highlight partnerships between researchers and the essential infrastructures and services across the university which support data-driven research, data management, high-performance computing, and statistical support.
