The Open Data Science Conference,
September 17th to 19th 2020
An ODSC speaker is someone with proven data science expertise and a strong ability to present the latest languages, tools, and models used in data science and AI for business. These individuals are committed to sharing innovative ideas and contributing to the growth of open source software.
Since its inception, the Open Data Science Conference has highlighted the significant contributions presenters make to the field of data science. Thanks to their participation, attendees have come to expect the highest quality talks, workshops, and training sessions.
Please be advised that the First Deadline for Speaker Proposals is the best opportunity to get your session accepted for ODSC Europe. The Second Deadline for Speaker Proposals is a rolling call for submissions and is dependent upon filling any focus areas that the speaker committee feels is missing from the program.
Proposals will be considered for the following types of presentations:
Format for Technical Sessions
Format for Business Sessions
Here are some helpful guidelines to consider for your proposal:
Your title should grab the interest of attendees and concisely tell attendees what your session is about.
The recommended abstract must be at least 250 words. However, ensure your abstract is succinct and speaks to both the topic and context of your presentation. This abstract will be used on an online speaker page, mobile app, and other online marketing platforms. The description must also explain what the attendee will learn from your presentation.
Be advised that the speaker committee reserves the right to reject any talk at any time, if the presentation does not match the abstract and stated intent.
ODSC attracts a highly-educated audience of data science practitioners. The topic difficulty level you select must consider the quality of our audience in addition to the complexity of the data science languages and tools you will discuss.
Beginner: These sessions help attendees learn the fundamentals of a subject area.
Intermediate: These sessions help attendees increase their knowledge of a subject area.
Advanced: These sessions help attendees increase their already advanced knowledge of a subject area.
On the submission form, you will be asked to explain why the particular topic difficulty level was selected.
Workshop and Training sessions require a demonstrable track record in data science instruction. Individuals who qualify include those who have experience teaching at a university, boot camp, or educational organization, as well as those who are core contributors to the data science field.
Workshop and training sessions will undergo a secondary review process.
In keeping with our motto, “The Future of AI is Here,” original presentations and materials are preferred in contrast to recycled presentations.
If you wish to showcase a product or service at ODSC please fill out our form here and express your interest in our Demo Theater tracks. Otherwise product or services pitches are expressly prohibited by ODSC. When you submit, please confirm your proposal complies with this requirement.
