MERL Tech Dashboard Contest!

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Join us for the First MERL Tech Dashboard Contest! Leading MERL Tech experts will showcase their dashboards in fast, fun five-minute lightning talks that will tell us:
  1. the goal of their dashboard 
  2. how they organized the underlying data 
  3. why they choose that design 
  4. the impact it had in decision-making.

Three distinguished judges (Amanda Makulec, Charles Guedenet, and Christopher Robert) will rate the dashboards and we’ll declare three winners based on their votes. A fourth winner will be declared via a special People’s Choice award chosen by conference participants. Each contest participant will receive a prize and the top four dashboards will have a special award signifying their excellence.
