Event description

Description

Registration is now open for the second Government Data Science Partnership (GDSP) Conference to be held on 1 March 2018 at 1VS Conference Centre, London.

GDSP held its first conference in April 2017 where we brought together over 250 data scientists, analysts and policymakers from across government to share knowledge and best practice, and to learn from each other. The conference featured over 30 talks, and we are asking you to submit your proposals by 19 January 2018 to deliver a talk, show and tell or demo as part of the next conference. We also welcome whole session proposals.

This event is an opportunity for those within the public sector with an interest in data science and the better use of data to showcase, learn and develop best practice. It is part of the GDSP’s remit to build the data science community across government

The conference will highlight how data science is being applied to challenges across government. Alongside technical topics we will accept proposals covering how departments are growing teams, adapting as organisations and building capability to deliver data science projects. The agenda will include keynote speakers, themed sessions, talks and demos. There will also be an ‘unconference’ session where the agenda and outcome is determined by participants.

We are launching this call for you to submit your proposals to deliver a talk, show and tell, or demo as part of the conference. We are looking to include sessions on:

  • Projects at all stages - prototypes, midway through or completed
  • How data science is being implemented in production
  • Building capability - careers, professional development, structuring teams, ways of working
  • New methods/data/techniques/software

We have a number of types of session to fill:

  • 20 minute talks (15 mins with 5 mins for audience questions)
  • 40 or 60 minute sessions (2 or 3 talks, a panel discussion or combination of these)
  • Demos and posters - slots during lunch and breaks where you can demonstrate your work to others (you will be required to bring a laptop and we are exploring whether we can supply a screen, or physical poster)

Please complete the linked form for your proposal for the Government Data Science Partnership Conference.

Applications close on 19 January 2018.

We would also encourage attendees to use the event as an opportunity for networking and collaboration - if you are going and want to discuss a topic or talk to someone particular, there is space at the beginning and end of the conference for just that. A good place to make contact or organise something is on the Government Data Science Slack channel, or send in a proposal!

You can also sign up to the cross-government data science community of interest here.


**Please note this event is for attendees that register with an 'gov.uk' email address only**
