About

The Spatial Data Science Conference (#SDSC19) is the first event to bring together Data Scientists and Developers who specialize in working with spatial data.

Founded in 2017, the conference brings together organizations who are pushing the boundaries of spatial data modelling - ranging from large enterprise, to cities and government, as well as thought leaders from academic institutions.

What to expect

The agenda will be packed with keynotes, panels, technical workshops, and opportunities to network with experts in spatial data from across the globe.

  • Keynotes: Keynote speakers will inspire you with their vision for the future of Spatial Data Science, focusing on the latest in modelling techniques and new data streams.
  • Technical Workshops: Learn first-hand how to use new geospatial technology in your Data Science workflows. Connect with industry experts, product gurus and innovators from a range of industries.
  • Panels: Data and geospatial experts will come together to discuss how they see our space evolving, focusing on how the growth of Spatial Data Science is affecting the Location Intelligence ecosystem.
  • Networking Events: There’s more than just great content—it’s also an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas & valuable industry insights with other professionals in our networking lounge and dinner.
