Brace yourself: DATA festival 2020 is coming

More than 450 participants from a total of 16 countries – the DATA festival 2019 was a magnet for visitors. The success story will be continued in its third edition in 2020. The planning for this run already at full speed.

The Call for Presentation for the DATA festival 2020 ended on 31 October 2019. More than 100 applications were received. In the next step, a programme committee selects the best presentations from all submissions, which will then be shown at the DATA festival 2020. “We are delighted that we have received so many interesting and high-quality applications. I would like to express my sincere thanks for this. It won’t be easy for us to choose the best lectures,” says program committee member Julia Herzog-Butter. The DATA festival 2020 will take place from 17 to 19 March in Munich.

Top-class programme committee

In order to assess the quality of the application, the committee consists exclusively of renowned experts from the fields of data science and artificial intelligence (AI). Julia Herzog-Butter is on the committee for the first time this year, and in 2019 she was a speaker herself. She is a proven AI expert and has an excellent network in the industry. She spent the first few years of her career in an innovation consulting firm, focusing mainly on user-centric innovation projects and innovation-driven changes in Europe and China.
