Organizers of Data Jawn, the yearly data analytics-themed event, have opened up a call for submissions of data-centric talks for its upcoming edition, happening June 12.

At the event, organizer Daniel Larson says, the mission is to keep putting the spotlight on the most interesting cases of data-related work happening in the Philly area.

“I hope to get submissions about people using data for social good, how data is being used across industries, and talks from students about projects they are working on,” said Larson, a data analyst and associate director of institutional research at Drexel University. “I am really interested in how data professionals are dealing with the topic of privacy.”

Like last year, the event is again looking to feature a diverse lineup of speakers. For the 2018 edition, it partnered with Meetup group Data Philly to broaden help its roster better reflect the city’s demographics.

“I am hoping to encourage first time presenters to submit talks as well,” Larson said. “If anyone wants feedback on their ideas before submitting, I am happy to provide some.”

Data Jawn first took place in 2015, as an initiative led by data analytics firm RJMetrics. Last year, it made a comeback thanks to a group of local data analysts from CompassRed, Stitch and Fishtown Analytics, with RJMetrics founder Bob Moore as emcee.


Here is one cool takeaway from the 2018 event: According to an analysis of 1.3 million tweets from around the country, Philly is one of the least positive-tweeting cities in America.
