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.
WiDS aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field.
In 2020, we finally put Villach and Austria on the map.
WiDS Villach was organized in cooperation with the initiative AI Carinthia.
More than 70 data science enthusiasts from over 20 countries joined the very first WiDS Villach conference on September 18, 2020. They took the chance 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.
But this was just the beginning. We will be back in 2021!
As Data Science enthusiasts we want to cover a variety of topics at the upcoming WiDS Villach 2021 conference. You’d like to take action and share your data passion with the WiDS community?
