Call for Workshop Proposals

Data Science is at the forefront of new scientific discoveries. It plays a significant role in all aspects of our daily lives. The 9th Swiss Conference on Data Science brings together researchers, developers and innovators. SDS2022 takes place on June 22-23, 2022.

The conference also fosters the community of data scientists and engineers. We follow the motto „together we move faster“. The goal of SDS2022 is to foster the exchange of novel ideas for Data Science. In 2022, the focus topics will be

  • AI for Cybersecurity and Data Protection
  • AI for Humanity
  • Developing, deploying and operating machine learning-based systems (MLOps) and
  • Implementing socially-acceptable data-based applications.

We invite the community to propose special thematic workshops and hands-on tutorials. The topics should have a high relevance to important sub-fields of Data Science. The workshops and tutorial will take place on Wednesday, June 22, 2022.

Proposals should involve a relevant sub-community, and present tangible outcomes. Workshops could deal for example with shared dataset challenges, hackathons or competitions. A tutorial should show educational objectives. The workshop organizers are responsible for the venue and catering.
