10 January 2016 - 23:08Announcing PyDataLondon 2016 (May 6-8th)

We’re very happy to announce that Bloomberg will host us a second time for PyDataLondon 2016 (our 3rd annual conference). We’ll run the conference over May 6-8th (a tutorial day and 2 conference days as last time) with approximately 330 people in attendance. The location is Central London – near Bank underground station and London Bridge.

Our PyDataLondon meetup community has grown amazingly in the last year, we’ve almost doubled in size to 2,500+ members with 200 in the room each month. We’ve had 19 events in almost 2 years, mostly around Python (some with R, Julia and Matlab), mostly on data science (and stats, visualisation and high performance) and all with a lovely collaborative audience.

The conference Call for Proposals will be opened very soon (in a week or two). If you’d like to speak in front of 330 active data scientists in London’s most active data science community, get thinking on your topic. We’re interested in data science topics, mostly around Python (but we’re cool with other tech and theory). Extra attention will be paid to talks offering real-world stories (for both success and failure – all lessons are equally useful).

Sign-up to this email announce list to be kept in the loop, I’ll write a couple of mails when the CfP is open and as the conference plans develop.

If you’ve not been to one of our conferences before checkout my write-ups from 2015 and 2014.

If you’re hiring or you have a relevant product – think on sponsoring. We expect to sell all of our spots this year due to increased demand for strong data scientists – if you’d like to have a prime spot in the central room (all the talk-rooms hang off of the central room so sponsors are in the thick of it), do get in contact.

You might also be interested in PyDataAmsterdam on March 12-13th (their Call for Proposals is already open).
