SUSS Analytics and Visualisation Challenge 2020

About the Event

The SUSS Analytics and Visualisation Challenge 2020 (AVC20) is a poster challenge opened to A’levels, International Baccalaureate, and Polytechnic Diploma students.

AVC20 invites submissions along two general themes: 1) Modern Culture and 2) Humans and Societies. Submissions under Modern Culture may include the analytics and/or visualisation of pop culture, gaming, or issues facing our young generations. Submissions under Humans and Societies may include issues related to economic development, physical and mental well-being, urban societies, health, etc.

Students unsure about the theme they should submit their posters under are welcome to make a submission. We will help to assign their posters to the most appropriate category.

For each theme, we will select up to 6 finalists. Provisional admissions into the SUSS School of Business full-time BSc in Business Analytics with Minor programme, subject to terms and conditions, will be offered to all successful poster finalists. Attractive prizes are also to be won by the winning teams of AVC20.
