for the first time, we organize a joint conference of the GMDS & CEN-IBS 2020 which takes place in Berlin, 6 -11 September 2020: www.gmds-cen-2020

Our slogan “Bringing Data to Life” aims at bringing together the different disciplines of data science and to discuss a variety of central, innovative key topics (e.g. educating the next generation - data scientists of tomorrow, communicating methods, evidence and uncertainty, new data sources for evidence generation, deep learning & artificial intelligence, reproducible research, reporting and data sharing). We expect about 1000 international participants.

We have just announced the “Call for Tutorials”. We kindly ask you, to submit yourself suggestions for tutorials which fit to our key topics or to contact people who could contribute a tutorial. The call should be forwarded to any potentially interested person. Deadline for submission is January, the 15th 2019.
