People networking on the terrace at SDSC at The Royal Geographical Society.

Having gathered more than 800 attendees over 3 days at our sold-out event in London last year, we're excited to announce our 2024 edition. We’ll bring together Data Science, Advanced Analytics & Geospatial experts from across the globe to discuss the latest trends and innovative use cases across multiple industries.

We’ll look to answer some of the most pressing location-based questions in both the private & public sectors, bringing together a mixture of business and research.

* All tickets include access to sign-up for our pre-conference workshops, but participants must register for these sessions separately as there are only a limited number of places available. Once you make your order, you will receive instructions on how to do so.

Diversity program

Having a diverse group present at #SDSC24 is a priority for us, and for that reason we are setting aside 30 tickets to ensure we attract attendees from groups who are typically underrepresented at Data Science or GIS events.
This includes but is not limited to: women, underrepresented backgrounds, people with disabilities and LGBTQ.
