To announce the arrival of a new set of crime data, our next meetup will be a mini data contest, with a $100 prize for the best student analysis. In this meeting, we will present the new Crime Incident dataset and talk about how to link it to other social datasets. After the presentation, we’ll challenge you to do you own analysis, with a $100 prize for the best analysis from a student, undergraduate or lower.

Then, for the next meeting, we’ll invite the best analysts to present their findings and techniques.
