I am happy to share this exciting conference I am keynoting at. Also, Mike Ohlsen from Cloudera will deliver a keynote at the conference.
About the conference:
June 12th – 13th 2017 | Salzburg, Austria | www.idsc.at
The 1st International Data Science Conference (iDSC 2017) organized by Salzburg University of Applied Sciences (Information Technology and Systems Management) in cooperation with Information Professionals GmbH seeks to establish a key Data Science event, providing a forum for an international exchange on Data Science technologies and applications.
The International Data Science Conference gives the participants the opportunity, over the course of two days, to delve into the most current research and up-to-date practice in Data Science and data-driven business. Besides the two parallel tracks, the Research Track and the Industry Track, on the second day a Symposium is taking place presenting the outcomes of a European Project on Text and Data Mining (TDM). These events are open to all participants.
Also we are proud to announce keynote presentations from Mike Olson (Chief Strategy Officer Cloudera), Ralf Klinkenberg (General Manager RapidMiner), Euro Beinat (Data-Science Professor and Managing Director CS Research), Mario Meir-Huber (Big Data Architect Microsoft). These keynotes will be distributed over both conference days, providing times for all participants to come together and share views on challenges and trends in Data Science.
The Research Track offers a series of short presentations from Data Science researchers on their own, current papers. On both conference days, we are planning a morning and an afternoon session presenting the results of innovative research into data mining, machine learning, data management and the entire spectrum of Data Science.
The Industry Track showcases real practitioners of data-driven business and how they use Data Science to help achieve organizational goals. Though not restricted to these topics only, the industry talks will concentrate on our broad focus areas of manufacturing, retail and social good. Users of data technologies can meet with peers and exchange ideas and solutions to the practical challenges of data-driven business.
Futhermore the Symposium is organized in collaboration with the FutureTDM Consortium. FutureTDM is a European project which over the last two years has been identifying the legal and technical barriers, as well as the skills stakeholders/practitioners lack, that inhibit the uptake of text and data mining for researchers and innovative businesses. The recommendations and guidelines recognized and proposed to counterbalance these barriers, so as to ensure broader TDM uptake and thus boost Europe’s research and innovation capacities, will be the focus of the Symposium.
Our sponsors Cloudera, F&F and um etc. will have their own, special platform: half-day workshops to provide hands-on interaction with tools or to learn approaches to developing concrete solutions. In addition, there will be an exhibition of the sponsors’ products and services throughout the conference, with the opportunity for the participants to seek contact and advice.
The iDSC 2017 is therefore a unique meeting place for researchers, business managers, and data scientists to discover novel approaches and to share solutions to the challenges of a data-driven world.
