Applied Data Science SIG community event


On April 18 ADS will organise the second Applied Data Science SIG Community Event!

The goal of this event is to bring the different Special Interest Groups (SIGs) of the focus area closer together. We will have an inspiring afternoon full of presentations organised by the different SIGs. The SIGs will present past and/or ongoing work or an overview of activities organised by the SIG. In addition, there will be plenty of opportunity to network during the lunch or the drinks afterwards.
