Welcome to the 2013 LIDS Student Conference! This year's conference will be held on January 31st and February 1st of 2013, at MIT's Stata Center Room 32-155.
The theme this year is LIDS: Let Insights and Data Speak. Through an exciting program with student presentations, plenary speeches, and a panel discussion, we will explore how "LIDS-style" analytical approaches to systems modeling can be inspired by, and leveraged to empower, the presence of Big Data.
We are fortunate to have with us the following distinguished plenary speakers:
- Corinna Cortes, Head of Google Research, NY
- Ron Dror, Senior Research Scientist at D. E. Shaw Research, and deputy to Chief Scientist David E. Shaw
- Sep Kamvar, LG Career Development Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, MIT & MIT Media Lab
- Michael Stonebraker, Adjunct Professor at CSAIL, MIT

We look forward to seeing you there!
