Our conference is returning in June 2022 as the Advances in Data Science and AI conference and will be held online and in Manchester.
After physical events in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and a quickly re-designed online event in 2020, we took a break in 2021 as the pandemic uncertainty continued.
We are now returning on 20 and 21 June 2022 with the Advances in Data Science and AI conference, which will be delivered at The University of Manchester and with the option to access the event online. Ticket options reflect this: with online and physical tickets available. *Please note: please only choose physical tickets if you are able to attend in person* For 2022 only, the conference is free!
