Learn about the WiDS initiative

Welcome to Women in Data Science Villach

An independent regional initiative of WiDS at Stanford University

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. 

We are proud to bring the global WiDS initiative to Carinthia [Austria] !

WiDS Global Conference Location 2020

All data science enthusiasts are invited to join the WiDS Villach events, to talk about the latest data science related research and applications in a broad set of domains and to connect with the local scene.
