Postponing Data Science Week 2020
To our valued data science week community,
It is with deep regret to advise that Data Science Week 2020 (DSW2020), scheduled to take place in May, has been postponed.
This is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and state of emergency in Western Australia.
The DSW2020 committee determined that under the circumstances, we could not ensure the health and well-being of our attendees, organisers, venue operators, and members of the Australian data science week community. Your health and safety is our first and foremost priority.
As such the organising committee has been left with no choice but to postpone the event until it is safe to reconvene.
This has been a very difficult decision for the organising committee to make. We apologise and recognise the decision will impact on participants and event organisers across Australia.
We intend to hold Data Science Week at a later date and we look forward to welcoming you there.
We will keep you informed as we know more. We appreciate your understanding in this unexpected situation.
