Having brought together more than 5,000 experts online in 2020, we’re excited to announce 2021’s online edition of the Spatial Data Science Conference, gathering Data Science, Advanced Analytics & GIS experts from across the globe. Further supporting the exponential growth of this community, we’re excited to bring together businesses and organizations who need to ask important location-based questions to adapt to the new era we are living in.
This year, as well as the main virtual event (October 25th - 28th) we will also be holding two more industry-specific events: the Spatial Data Science in Financial Services Summit & the Spatial Data Science in CPG & Retail Summit. Both of these industries are rapidly increasing their investment in location analytics and bringing experts together to discuss the latest use cases, datasets and methodologies in smaller events will provide a unique experience to continue conversations sparked at #SDSC20.
The Financial Services industry has become one of the leading verticals in Spatial Data Science in recent years – with a growing number of professionals ramping up their use of geospatial data for fraud detection, risk assessment, market analysis, branch & ATM site planning, catastrophe modelling, M&A analysis, and much more.
This event will bring together Data Science and geospatial leaders from banks, credit card companies, PE and hedge funds, insurers, and reinsurers to demonstrate the next-generation use cases they are working on to push the envelope in their respective areas.
Examples of Previous Speakers from the Financial Services Industry:
Tim Kiely, Lead Data Scientist & Head of Research at Hodges Ward Elliott
Rayne Gaisford, Head of Data Strategy at Jefferies
David Weis, VP Location Intelligence at Mastercard
Dr Tomas Holderness, CTO at Addresscloud
Iván Fanego, Branded Content & Social Media Manager at ING
March 24th & 25th – Online
Understanding consumers through the lens of location has never been more important, with leading CPG & Retail brands increasing their investment in Spatial Data Science to understand not only the “where” but the “why” behind consumer behavior.
At this event we’ll bring together thought leaders in location-based analytics for use cases such as omnichannel planning, supply chain network design, white space analysis, revenue prediction and much more, looking at the new types of data and modelling being used across the industry and how this will enable the industry to adapt to a new normal for CPG and Retail.
Examples of Previous Speakers from the CPG & Retail Industry:
Tim Rains, Spatial Data Scientist at Sainsbury’s
Neera Chatterjee, Senior Product Manager at Instacart
Alex Singleton, Professor of GIS at University of Liverpool
LeeRyan Solomon, Data Scientist at US Foods
May 19th & 20th – Online
