WiDS Livermore is independently organized by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to be part of the mission to increase participation of women in data science and to feature outstanding women doing outstanding work.

The global WiDS Conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field. This one-day technical conference provides an opportunity to hear about the latest data science related research and applications in a number of domains, and connect with others in the field. The program features thought leaders covering a wide range of domains from data ethics and privacy, healthcare, data visualization, and more. Whether you're at LLNL, a university, a commercial company, or any other affiliation: Everyone is welcome.

Everyone—inside or outside the Lab, any career level, any data science experience level—is invited to attend our upcoming WiDS Livermore event and its related datathon. Both events are hybrid, though they will be held at different locations just outside the main LLNL campus. Participants are asked to avoid sensitive information in all communications and interactions during these events.


LLNL Datathon

Wednesday, February 28 | 8:30am – 5:00pm PDT (GMT -7)

 Registration is now closed

The global WiDS conference hosts a competitive datathon in which participants can learn more about data science and hone their skills. This one-day event at LLNL provides an opportunity to collaborate, innovate, and investigate a challenging data science problem.

Our hybrid datathon is designed for data science enthusiasts who are discovering or building their data skills (beginner and intermediate levels). An LLNL data scientist will guide participants through the dataset and notebook. To make the most of your datathon experience, we recommend creating a Google Colab account (i.e., a Gmail address) or installing Jupyter to work locally.

In-person attendees are required to bring valid ID to LVOC. Foreign national guests must bring their passport or legal permanent residence card, and they will be escorted by LLNL employees. Videos, photos, and audio recordings from personal (non-LLNL) devices are not permitted. LLNL staff will be taking photos.
