Orhun Aydin, Ph.D., lecturer with the USC Spatial Sciences Institute and researcher and product engineer with Esri, will be one of the featured speakers on the COVID-19 Data Forum. The COVID-19 Data Forum is a series of multidisciplinary, online meetings for topic experts to focus on data-related aspects of the scientific response to the pandemic, including data access and sharing, essential data resources for analysis, and how we can best support decision making.

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged science and society to an unprecedented degree. Human lives and the future of our society depend on the response. That response, in turn, depends critically on data. This data must be as complete and accurate as possible, easily and flexibly accessible, and equipped to communicate effectively with decision-makers and the public. The COVID-19 Data Forum brings together those involved with relevant data to discuss current resources, needed enhancements and the potential for cooperative efforts.

Aydin will be part of the first online meeting on Thursday, May 14, 2020 from 19:00 UTC (12 pm Los Angeles,  8 pm London, 5 am Sydney) until 20:30 UTC.

The forum is co-organized by R Consortium and Stanford Data Science Institute. The online forum meetings are being conducted as public webinar, and all are welcome:
