Register for the UConn Sports Analytics Symposium’s Student Data Competition by 9/14

Do you have a passion for sports and data? The UConn Sports Analytics Symposium (UCSAS) offers a student data competition, where you can apply your data analysis skills to a real-world sports question. The UConn Sports Analytics Symposium focuses specifically on undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in sports analytics. Finalists will be invited to present at UCSAS 2024. Winning teams will win a cash prize and the opportunity to showcase their work, with all travel, registrations, and expenses paid, at the 2024 U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Data, Analytics & Technology Summit.

This year, student teams will identify the group of 5 athletes who will enable the Team USA Olympic Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics teams to optimize success in Paris 2024. You are tasked with developing an analytics model that can be used to identify and compare the expected medal count in the 8 medal events for men and 6 medal events for the women.
