International Data Science Conference

Based on the overall digitalization in all spheres of our lives, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are nowadays cornerstones for innovation, problem solutions, and business transformation. Data, whether structured or unstructured, numerical, textual, or audiovisual, put in context with other data or analyzed and processed by smart algorithms, are the basis for intelligent concepts and practical solutions. These solutions address many application areas such as Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things (IoT), smart cities, smart energy generation, and distribution, and environmental management. Innovation dynamics and business opportunities for effective solutions for the essential societal, environmental, or health challenges, are enabled and driven by modern data science approaches.

However, Data Science and Artificial Intelligence are forming a new field that needs attention and focused research. Effective data science is only achieved in a broad and diverse discourse – when data science experts cooperate tightly with application domain experts and scientists exchange views and methods with engineers and business experts. Thus, the 5th International Data Science Conference (iDSC 2023) brings together researchers, scientists, business experts, and practitioners to discuss new approaches, methods, and tools made possible by data science.

The cooperation of the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences, the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences, the University for Continuing Education Krems (Danube University Krems), and the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology demonstrates the strong Austrian scientific footprint and a deep commitment to a cooperative effort for jointly building an international community from science, research, as well as business, through data science and data analytics.

The iDSC is designed as a conference with a dual approach: By bringing together the latest findings in research and science, as well as innovative implementation examples in business and industry, the conference is aimed at reflecting the current scientific breakthroughs and application expertise, as a means of stimulating shared professional discourse. The iDSC realizes this approach via its Research & Science track, the Application & Use Cases track, as well as interactive workshops. In addition, iDSC is striving to provide a PhD colloquium, enabling young researchers to exchange with senior faculty, industry experts, as well as other fellow students.

All these activities are complemented with exciting keynotes and panels, providing international exchange and the discussion of current and next-gen trends in the domain of data science.
