Speaker call: DataTech20

The Data Lab are welcoming proposals from industry, academia and the public sector for data science workshops, talks, lightning talks, and posters for DataTech20. This conference is part of DataFest20, a two-week festival of data and AI coming back to Scotland in March 2020. Last year, DataTech brought together data communities from across Scotland, the US, as well as from Central and Eastern Europe. Our 2019 keynotes were internationally-recognised experts in supercomputing (Debbie Bard, NERSC), machine learning and AI (Jared Lander, Lander Analytics/Columbia University), and reproducible data workflows (Mine Cetinkaya-Rundel, RStudio/Duke University, now affiliated to The University of Edinburgh).

This year, be a part of DataTech20 to discuss data science challenges across different sectors, share knowledge and expertise, and forge new collaborations. Equally, don’t miss this opportunity to hear and meet our keynote speakers:

  • Dr Erin LeDell, Chief Machine Learning Scientist at, leading the development of an open source and automatic machine learning (AutoML) platform
  • Dr Janelle Shane, Colorado-based optics and AI researcher, also a 2019 TED fellow and the maintainer of the popular science blog (covered by WIRED, The Atlantic, NBC News, and Slate)

Deadline for submissions: 12 January 2020
Conference Date: 16 March 2020
Venue: Technology and Innovation Centre, Glasgow
