Due to the spread of COVID-19 in Europe, data science enthusiasts couldn’t meet in March for the 1st WiDS Villach conference. Now, we are happy that the conference will take place offline & online on September 18, 2020, at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences.
For all who cannot join the event in-person, we set up a public live stream.
To ensure that all on-site participants stay safe and healthy, we kindly ask you to follow the hygiene and distance regulations from the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences. Additionally, the following measures will be installed:
- One day before the event the conference room will be disinfected
- Disinfectant dispensers will be available at central entrances
- Only registered participants are allowed to enter the conference room and each participant will get an assigned seat
- To guarantee enough space between all participants, the number of seats is limited to 90
- If not done so already during the online registration, we will ask all participants to provide their contact information to enable easy and quick contact tracing (just in case)
Women in Data Science [WiDS] started as a conference at Stanford in November 2015. Now, WiDS includes a global conference, with approximately 200+ regional events worldwide; a datathon, encouraging participants to hone their skills using a social impact challenge; and a podcast, featuring leaders in the field talking about their work, their journeys, and lessons learned.
We are proud to bring the global WiDS initiative to Carinthia [Austria] for the very first time!
WiDS aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field.
All data science enthusiasts are invited to join WiDS Villach on September 18, 2020, to hear about the latest data science related research and applications in a broad set of domains, learn how leading-edge companies are using data science for success, and to connect with the local scene.
How can you participate? Registration to this event is FREE of charge. Please register here.
We are looking forward to meet you!
