The Conference of Data Science, Statistics & Visualisation (DSSV 2018)

The conference of Data Science, Statistics & Visualisation (DSSV 2018) will take place on 9-11 July 2018 in TU Wien, Austria. This meeting shall create a forum to discuss recent progress and emerging ideas in these different disciplines and encourage informal contacts and discussions among all the participants. The conference welcomes contributions to practical aspects of data science, statistics and visualisation, and in particular those which are linking and integrating these subject areas. Presentations should thus be oriented towards a very wide scientific audience, and can cover topics such as machine learning and statistical learning, the visualisation and verbalization of data, big data infrastructures and analytics, interactive learning, advanced computing, and other important themes.
The conference will feature the keynote speaker Jerome H. Friedman (Stanford University) and Helwig Hauser (University of Bergen), and Invited speakers Zeynep Akata (University of Amsterdam), Mia Hubert, (KU Leuven), Eric Postma (Tilburg University), Ryan Tibshirani (Carnegie Mellon University) and Sara van de Geer (ETH Zurich).
We are looking forward to your contributions to practical aspects of data science, statistics and visualisation, and in particular those which are linking and integrating these subject areas.
The deadline for abstract submission is 9 April 2018 subject to no other postponement. The DSSV2018 scientific committee encourages and welcomes you to submit your abstract. We look forward to receive many exciting contributions! For more details, please see
Registration and abstract submission started on 8 January 2018.
The TU Wien is situated in the very heart of Vienna, in the pulsating cultural centre of town. Within easy walking distance are the Opera House, the art nouveau Secession building, the Musikverein, home of the Vienna Philharmonic, from which the New Year’s Concert is annually broadcast around the globe, and the splendid baroque Karlskirche (Church of St. Charles).
