    Call for Speakers

    We are looking for inspirational individuals who would like to share their data & AI story with our community and become a part of our Speakers team. Talks will happen on November 17-18th, as the main event of the Conference. This year we expect to have more than 60 speakers presenting in 10 tracks.

    Talks will last for 20 minutes, with an additional 5 minutes for questions. We have foreseen to have only one speaker per talk. There are four types of talk: technical, business, research and educational.
    Technical talk is focused on practical implementation and use cases in the field of Data Science & AI.
    Business talk is related to how Data Science & AI can influence business, business decisions, profit and revenue in general.
    Research talk is oriented toward presenting an academic or industry research paper that was previously published.
    Educational talk is focused on educational programs and personal experience of how you or your business started your Data Science & AI journey.

    An initial list of topics eligible for the talk can be found below:

    Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

    In this track we would like to hear topic such as AI, Deep Learning, Neural Network, CNN, GNN & RNN, Robotics, Self-driving cars, Computer Vision, Natural Language Generation, Text Analytics and Natural Language Processing, Social Analytics, Recommender Systems, Virtual Agents, Machine Learning & Deep Learning Platforms, Machine Intelligence, etc.

    Big Data & Data Engineering

    In this track we would like to hear topics such as: Big Data Warehouse, Data in Cloud, Streaming Systems & Real-Time Analytics, Machine Learning on Big Data, Self-service data, Big Data Tools, Machine Learning embedded into ETL and analytics tools, Smart Data, Sensor Data, Augmented Data Management, Data Labeling, Big Data Engineering, Effective Metadata processing, Data Warehousing, Data Architecture, etc.

    AI & Data Research

    In this track we would like to hear the latest academic & industry research from the field of AI, Data Science and/or Big Data. It may relate to research paper you published, review articles, research initiated by industry demands and researches that have been monetized, review of math tools, techniques and algorithms or/and ideas for a research paper you would like to share with the public.

    Open Movement

    In this track, we shall be bringing together a deep integration of "the three opens": Open source software, Open hardware & Open data. We would like to hear more about the topics that can fit in, such as Open Data Initiatives, Open Source Frameworks, OCP & Open Hardware use-cases, etc, but also the topics that combine and integrate these three above mentioned.

    Data & AI Competition

    Data Science & AI competition have become everyday. Do you have an interesting use case from Online competition or Datathon? Tell us more about what was the problem and how did you solve the problem. It should have integrated as a part of the talk section “Lessons learned” or/and advice you may share with the public.

    Decision Intelligence

    Augments data science with theory from social science, decision theory, and managerial science. Includes topics that involve applying analytics, machine learning & AI at scale, practices in organizational decision-making and internal processes. Share your story regarding Advanced analytics, Business Intelligence or/and Data Visualisation in this track.

    Business Application of Data Science & AI

    In this track we would like to hear about concrete business application how Data may lead to monetization or/and creating a bigger profit. This includes topics such as Data & AI Product, Data & AI-Driven Organisation, Data-Driven Business Management, Data Insight, Software/Data as a Service, Platform Business, Optimization, etc.

    Data Science & AI Startups

    Tell us your story about how you started your Data Science & AI Startup, what is your core business and why did you choose that exact field, what were the obstacles, how did you overcome the same and what are the lessons learned. This talk should include what are your plans for the future and advice for the people who are thinking to start their Data Science or AI startup.
