The Institute for Public Knowledge and NYU Sociology's Applied Quantitative Research Master's program are hosting the IPK's first ever datathon, a workshop bringing together academics, journalists, and data engineers to explore a big question in a short amount of time.  The theme of the March 9th event is "Social and Meteorological Data," which will encourage teams to play with different ways to combine these often disparate forms of data in configurations that illuminate the relationship between society and climate.
