The 2020 Smoky Mountains Computational Sciences and Engineering Conference enlists research scientists from across Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to be data sponsors and help create data analytics challenges for eminent data sets at the laboratory. This work describes the significance of each of the seven data sets and their as- sociated challenge questions. The challenge questions for each data set were required to cover multiple difficulty levels. An international call for participation was sent to students, and researchers asking them to form teams of up to four people to apply novel data analytics techniques to these data sets.
