Following the success of the last few years, IPSDS and SAP Next-Gen will once again bring together leading data science experts from industry, business and science on the occasion of the unique tech conference “Women in Data Science”. The aim of the initiative is to support women in an otherwise male-dominated field and to inspire, bring together, and train data experts worldwide, regardless of their gender.
Organized for the first time at Stanford University in late 2015, the former local conference has since developed into a global initiative. The third edition features conferences in Stanford and more than 150 other locations around the world.
This year, the following speakers will give a speech at the Woman and Data Science Conference Mannheim/
The conference is free of charge and will take place on 4 March 2020, 3.00 – 7.30 p.m. at the SAP Experience Room Walldorf, Germany.
