The Data Science Conference®

Vendor-free, sponsor-free, and recruiter-free.

20 21 April 2017

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The first and only vendor-free, sponsor-free, and recruiter-free data science conference, where business analytics professionals working on data science, big data, data mining, machine learning, artificial intelligence, or predictive modeling can network without being prospected by other attendees.

This professional-only conference attempts to put “science” back into data science conferences, a ‘safe haven’ meeting space without being prospected. No sales pitches; no sponsor booths; no selling your info; no recruiting; no overcharging you; no paid advertising; no email needed to see agenda/speakers; no extra charge for presentation slides. This is a conference, not an Expo.

Academic, student, and government discounts now available (see Register page).
