"The bootcamp provided me with a plethora of learning opportunities, and I appreciate the effort and time you invested in bringing together such an esteemed group of speakers and attendees. The sessions were insightful and engaging, and I left the conference feeling inspired and motivated to apply what I've learned in my own work."

"The bootcamp was a great experience for learning and networking. It provided the right amount of technical detail with many hands-on sessions. It was great to hear the latest developments from academics too. The CARTO organisers were very enthusiastic and created a very welcoming and supporting environment."

Closing Remarks

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.

To apply for a ticket, please email us at sharing your motivations to attend the event and what makes you eligible for a diversity ticket. 

More about SDSC

The Spatial Data Science Conference has been running since 2017. Our conferences (which take place online, in New York and London) have brought together thousands of people across the globe to discuss Spatial Data Science use cases, showcasing some of the best stories from a wide range of industries and countries. Our new bootcamps come as a response to many of our attendees also wanting a more hands-on experience, as well as organizations needing to upskill their Data Science teams in all things geospatial.
