Event description
Welcome to the 3rd annual Women in Data Science conference in Stockholm!

About this Event

We are pleased to invite you to the 3rd annual Women in Data Science conference in Stockholm! After doubling the size of the conference from 2018 to 2019, we've once again secured a larger venue and are hoping that this will allow us to welcome everyone who wants to attend. This year, the conference will contain 4 invited technical talks, 6 lightning talks, 1 career panel and lots of opportunities to meet and connect with other women in the field.

This is a technical conference created by female data scientists and featuring only women on stage, aimed towards current or aspiring practitioners of Data Science, Data Analytics, Machine Learning and AI. However, participants of all genders and backgrounds are more than welcome to attend!

The WiDS Stockholm conference is a labor of love and the organizers are not paid for their work. Tickets for our event are always free, because we believe in welcoming everyone regardless of their financial means. This means we are heavily reliant on sponsorship for all our events, and we are immensely grateful to the companies who have chosen to support this years conference: Spotify, Combient Mix, King, Gradient Descent, and iZettle.
