Data science is an emerging discipline, fuelled by continuing advances in technology for data acquisition, storage and curation. Data Science is fundamentally inter-disciplinary, covering computer science and machine learning, mathematics and statistics, and domain knowledge from application areas. The role of statistics in this emerging discipline is unclear.

This conference will feature invited and contributed papers exploring the nature of the relationship between statistics and data science, suggesting state-of-the-art reasoning from both areas, and developing a synergistic path forward.

The conference will feature invited talks by prestigious speakers. In addition, contributed talks are sought. The collection of talks will be published in an edited volume by Word Scientific.
