The WinDS (Women in Data Science) workshop is a full-day event that will be held on April 29th in Houston, Texas in conjunction with SIAM International Conference on Data Mining (SDM 2017). This workshop event brings together female faculty, graduate students, research scientists and industry researchers for an opportunity to connect, exchange ideas and learn from each other in the field of Data Science. Underrepresented minorities, graduates, and undergraduates interested in pursuing data science, machine learning research are encouraged to participate. While most presenters should be women, everybody is invited to attend.
We will strongly encourage female students, post-docs and researchers in all areas of data mining, graph analytics, machine learning and applications in data science related to health, financial, sports, natural resource and so on.
