Women in Data Science Conference – Miami Event

February 3, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm EST

The Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists, regardless of gender, and support women in the field. ​This one-day technical conference provides an opportunity to hear about the latest data science related research in a number of domains, learn how leading-edge companies are leveraging data science for success, and connect with potential mentors, collaborators, and others in the field.

In Miami, we’ll have Local Data Scientists speak starting at 9 AM, and we will stream the live conference taking place at Stanford University starting at 12 PM. Come meet fellow Data Scientists and like-minded individuals while you learn about the latest advances in the field! Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
