Data science is an interdisciplinary research area that includes methodologies of machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition, visualization, data engineering and other disciplines. In recent years, data science methods were successfully applied to a large range of areas including health, biology, climate, marketing, etc. The number of data science-related activities and publications in the US and in the North-West Europe has grown dramatically, but South-East Europe had fewer data science related activities. In Spring 2015 a successful one-day workshop on Mathematics of Data Science was organized at the Mathematical Institute of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts.

The goal of 2016 South-East European Forum on Data Science is to bring data science researchers and experts from South-East Europe region together to discuss the current state-of-the-art, collaboration opportunities and challenges of data science research, as well as explore funding opportunities. The Forum will be an opportunity to business people to meeting highly-ranked data scientists from South-East Europe. The industry is invited to join the Forum’s workshop, panel discussion, and to visit invited lectures of their interest.

Welcome at the 2016 SEE Data Science Forum!
