The UC Berkeley School of Information and CITRIS are excited to partner with Stanford University to bring the Women in Data Science (WiDS) conference to Berkeley, California.
The Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference is an annual one-day technical conference based at Stanford, which brings together data scientists and professionals in adjacent fields from around the globe to discuss the latest research and applications of data science in a broad set of domains. Participants learn how leading-edge companies are leveraging data science for success and connect with potential mentors, collaborators, and others in the field.
Keynotes from the WiDS conference at Stanford will be live streamed, accompanied by on-location sessions featuring distinguished scholars and practioners from Berkeley and across the Bay Area.
Registration required; space is limited.
All genders are invited to participate in the conference, which features exclusively female speakers.
