The Women in Data Science (WiDS) initiative of Stanford University offers outstanding female researchers in the fields of data science and AI the opportunity to present the latest findings annually. Since 2022, the Faculty of Mathematics at Chemnitz University of Technology has participated in this format and is now inviting all interested parties to WiDS Chemnitz in 2023, which will take place on May 4th and 5th at the university library. The program includes six plenary talks by outstanding women in the field of data science, who will speak on various applications of data science, such as sociology, medicine, agriculture, and autonomous driving. Poster contributions are now open for submission. Although this format is primarily aimed at female scientists, all interested parties - for example, also from industry - are cordially invited. Registration is now open.

Dr. Franziska Nestler and Theresa Wagner from the Faculty of Mathematics are in charge of the project. Both belong to the junior research group Fast Algorithms for Transparent Recommender Systems (SALE) funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and are WiDS ambassadors again this year. This makes them part of a worldwide network of leading female researchers in the fields of AI and data science.

"This year, WiDS Chemnitz once again offers the opportunity to learn about the latest data science research across the board. In addition, insights can be gained into how leading companies are successfully using data science," says Nestler. "In addition to the presentation of current research results, an important aspect of the conference is the opportunity to network with potential mentors and collaborators in the field," adds Wagner. In 2022, about 50 participants had taken advantage of the inspiring conference atmosphere of Women in Data Science. This year, the organizers at the Faculty of Mathematics at Chemnitz University of Technology would be pleased about an equally good turnout.

More information about the program and registration is available online.
