Joining 50+ regional events worldwide, Women in Data Science is a technical conference featuring the work women are doing in data science, machine learning and adjacent engineering areas. WiDS Zurich is excited to bring the global Women in Data Science Conference to Switzerland for the second year in a row. This year, keynotes, lightning talks and breakout sessions will include leaders from, among others, Swiss Re, Google, UBS, SAP and Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Centre.

Our aim is to showcase a wide range of career paths and roles people can explore, that have machine learning and data science infused in them, including scientific endeavours both in academia and in industry, being a startup founder, doing artwork at the intersection of AI and art, business and product leadership. Applicants of all genders are invited to participate in this exciting opportunity to learn, network, and grow!

  • We all were there to support each other and share our passion about data! It is very important to have a safe environment where one can find collaborators, like-minded people or friends with common interests. I am sure each of us found at least one.
    — Lightning speaker Julia Proskurnia, Software Engineer, Google, Zurich, Switzerland
  • It was fantastic to be part of WiDS, sharing ideas around data science and how data science could be used to solve real world problems.
    — Keynote speaker Danielle Belgrave, Researcher, Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK
  • I never felt more comfortable talking about data science as I did at the first WIDS conference in Zurich. It's wonderful and inspiring to see so many of us striving to make the world better through data.
    — Keynote speaker Javiera Guedes, Senior Data Scientist, Credit Suisse, Zurich, Switzerland
