Advances in technology and changes in the business and social environment have led to an increasing flood of data, fueling both the need and the desire to generate value from these assets. The emerging field of Data Science is poised to deliver theoretical and practical solutions to the pressing issues of data-driven applications.

The 1st International Data Science Conference (iDSC 2017) organized by Salzburg University of Applied Sciences (Information Technology and Systems Management) in cooperation with Information Professionals GmbH seeks to establish a key Data Science event, providing a forum for an international exchange on Data Science technologies and applications.

This is a venue where participants can engage actively with a broad community of researchers and industry practitioners as well as other practitioners. The conference is unique in bringing these groups together.

The iDSC 2017 is the meeting place for researchers, business managers, and data scientists to discover novel approaches and to share solutions to the challenges of a data-driven world.

We expect iDSC to be an exciting and informative platform for insights and exchange. Besides the two parallel tracks, the Research Track and the Industry Track, we will also offer workshops on tools and solutions. In addition, on the second day a symposium is taking place presenting the outcomes of FutureTDM - an EU project on text and data Mining. These events are open to all participants.
