On 3 and 4 February 2023, the Institute of Data Science is hosting a 4th edition of Women in Data Science Maastricht Datathon in person. You will gain or improve your data science skills by tackling a data challenge of improving longer-range weather forecasts to help people prepare and adapt to extreme weather events caused by climate change. You will have a chance to win WIDS Global and WIDS Maastricht Winner prize!
Following the WiDS mission, you will work on the data challenge in a gender-balanced team. Students and professionals from both academia and industry can join our events full of creativity, inspiration, and fun. We prepared data science tutorials for beginners, experienced tutors to help you solve the data challenge, prizes for two Maastricht winner teams, and health and fitness sessions to relax your body after the intense hacking time! The event will be hosted in a nice venue at UMSport Center and catering is provided for you so you can focus on learning and doing data science in these two days!
If you are unsure about your data science skills, check out our training sessions on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 February 2023 (in the morning) or feel free to contact us!
Try something new, apply what you know, learn from other participants and improve your data science skills along the way! Please register before 31 January 2023!
