WiDS London 2018

Women in Data Science (WiDS) is finally coming to London!

*** Thank you - all the available tickets has now been allocated. Please join the waiting list so that you'll be able to claim the space once it becomes available. ***

This is a one-day technical conference to celebrate women in Data Science, following the WiDS London 2018 Launch Party on the 5th March (networking and live-streaming from WiDS Stanford 2018).

We will invite female speakers for inspiring talks on the latest technical advancement, as well as policy making. In the networking area, we will be broadcasting the recorded sessions from WiDS Stanford 2018. We're also planning some hands-on workshop sessions and even a datathon.

One kind reminder - in order to avoid oversubscription, we have limited the number of tickets to 100. Therefore, we are expecting a high number of people on the waiting list.

What is WiDS?

The one-day technical conference, known as "WiDS” was launched in November 2015 with three main goals:

  • To educate all participants—regardless of gender—about the latest research and state-of-the-art technologies, challenges, and future trends

  • To inspire students about exciting areas of research and application in data science, women role models, and the plethora of opportunities in the field

  • To support women in the field of data science—whether as practitioners in industry or researchers and educators in academia—helping them to gain exposure for their work, increase networking connections, and further their efforts in the field

Since the inaugural conference in 2015, WiDS has gone global with over 80 regional events worldwide from 30 countries and more than 75,000 people from 75 countries participated in 2017.

WiDS London is delighted to join forces this year to contribute to this global phenomenon!
