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/Walldorf:

  • Julia Krönung
    Professor of Information Systems, EBS Business School
  • Katrin Lehmann
    Senior Vice President S/4HANA Cloud Data Management, SAP
  • Iris Heckmann
    Principal, Camelot ITLab
  • Cosima Meyer

  • Simona Marincei
    Head of Intelligent Processes – SME Product Management, SAP
  • Tatjana Schröder
    AI Manager, trans-o-flex, and master’s student of the International Program in Survey and Data Science, University of Mannheim
