UConn Sports Analytics Symposium (UCSAS) 2020

Conference Date: Saturday, October 10, 2020
Location: University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT


While there are many well established sports analytics conferences, such as New England Symposium on Sports in Statistics (NESSIS) or the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, they are often not accessible to students due to technical level, cost, or space limitations. UConn, recognized nationally for its teams in sports such as basketball, baseball, and hockey, among others, will host the UConn Sports Analytics Symposium (UCSAS), which will focus specifically on undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in sports analytics. UCSAS, organized by the Statistical Data Science Lab at UConn and co-sponsored by the UConn Data Science Club (a student organization), aims to:

  • showcase sports analytics to students at an accessible level;
  • train students in data analytics with application to sports data; and
  • foster collaboration between academic programs and the sports industry.
