WiDS Villach is a group for all data science enthusiasts. We aim to connect data scientists, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field. At the WiDS Villach events you will 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 connect with the local scene.
Women in Data Science (WiDS) started as a conference at Stanford in November 2015. Now, WiDS includes a global conference, with approximately 150+ satellite 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.
The WiDS Villach organization team spared no effort in the last weeks to find a solution for a save in person conference in May 2021. In theory, an in person conference would be possible in May, but with massive restrictions. After discussing all pros and cons, we decided to postpone the conference to enable a relaxed event with networking and know-how sharing possibilities… and of course good coffee 🙂
The conference will now take place in person & online on October 1, 2021, at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences.
After its successful premiere last year, Women in Data Science is coming back to Villach.
All data science enthusiasts are invited to join WiDS Villach 2021, 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 connect with the local scene.
WiDS Villach 2021 is a technical conference organized in cooperation with the initiative AI Carinthia. The conference will be a hybrid event, which means you can choose between online or in-person attendance.
