SUS 2024

Stats Under the Stars (SUS), a satellite event of the SIS conference, is a hackathon open to national and international MSc or PhD students (an undergraduate degree is suggested, but not compulsory) and young Statisticians and Data Scientists. The participants work in teams and have a full night to compete in the analysis of a real-world analytics problem.

This year, SUS7 (night between June 16th and 17th 2024 in Lecce) is organized by the University of Salento – Department of Human and Social Sciences in collaboration with Young SIS. The event is endorsed by the Italian Statistical Society (SIS) and the challenge is promoted by Adecco.

The main goal of the competition is to develop analytic solutions that can accurately solve a real-world problem using all available exogenous and endogenous information. All teams are assigned the same business problem and the same dataset. Three prizes will be assigned based on the best overall project, best prediction and best report.
