Welcome to our conference and workshop hub.

TRIPODS@Duke LOGOTRIPODS@Duke was established in 2019 with a grant from the National Science Foundation to further our understanding of foundational principles in data science and to identify opportunities for innovation.

Since then, as many as 25 faculty members – as well as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows – are working across disciplines to develop new tools and methods and to create dialogues in data science throughout North Carolina’s “Research Triangle.”

Project collaborators represent Duke departments including Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mathematics, and Statistical Science, and the team anticipates forging additional partnerships through engagement with the Rhodes Information Initiative at Duke and the regional Statistical and Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI).


Our work cannot be complete unless all are given the genuine opportunity to succeed regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability. We are well aware that past and current injustices have prevented far too many people from living up to their potential. We are committed to maintaining a  culture that is welcoming and nurturing to all. We expect that everyone conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with these values and free from any form of discrimination or harassment.
