The Kolokotrones Circle Meetings are weekly gatherings focused on discussing methodologic issues that arise in data science and causal inference. These weekly meetings are organized as highly informal presentations, during which students, postdocs, and other junior investigators present issues encountered in the course of their ongoing research. Possible solutions are discussed by the group, which includes faculty members from the Departments of Biostatistics and Epidemiology. The discussion topics encompass all aspects of data science, including database management, design of observational analyses, machine learning algorithms, and causal inference techniques. All meetings are on Fridays from 1:00-2:00 PM EST in the Department of Epidemiology Library unless otherwise stated.
The Kolokotrones Circles are currently not open to the public due to the COVID19 pandemic.
