The Data Science Institute (DSI) aims to accelerate research in data science, serving as a
nucleating effort to catalyze interdisciplinary research collaborations across fields
impacting our society.
Serving as a hub for interdisciplinary research, collaboration and excellence, the DSI
brings together faculty and students from seven colleges across campus to work
effectively with big data and address problems and opportunities facing society—from
health sciences, physical sciences, environmental sciences, to behavioral and social
sciences and public policy. The Institute will further involve partnerships with industry
and other institutions in the region.

The DARWIN Computing Symposium 2022—sponsored by the Data Science Institute of the University of Delaware—was held on March 24, 2022. It represented the third event in a series of Symposia motivated by a National Science Foundation (NSF) MRI Award, also known as the Delaware Advanced Research Workforce and Innovation Network (DARWIN). As part of an NSF Major Research Instrumentation award (OAC-1919839), DARWIN has the goal of catalyzing "research and education at the University of Delaware (UD) and partners by acquiring a big data and high-performance computing system and making this instrument available to the community." This third DARWIN Computing Symposium presented a wide variety of research enabled by the DARWIN machine to the Delaware community. Alongside this, it showcased additional computational and dataenabled research, provided details on accessing DARWIN for University of Delaware (UD) and partner institutions, and facilitated opportunities for forming collaborations among future users at UD and regional partners. In addition to the NSF and the Data Science Institute, the 2022 DARWIN Computing Symposium was sponsored by DELL and Nemours Children's Health. Drs. Jodi Haden-Perilla and Juan Perilla, both of the University of Delaware, served as co-chairs of the 2022 DARWIN Computing Symposium.
