The Stanford Women in Data Science conference (WiDS) is a one day global conference that will bring data scientists together to share cutting edge research.  The conference aim is to inspire and encourage data scientists worldwide and exclusively support women in the field.

We will proudly host WiDS at The Alan Turing Institute.  The conference will feature eminent female speakers through technical talks, lunchtime discussions on data science (topics to be announced shortly), a panel discussion and networking event.

The conference programme and speaker information will be soon available through the conference website.

The event will provide great opportunities to connect with potential mentors, collaborators and peers; hear about recent advancements in data science and explore new research dimensions.
