The standard registration fee is £120, with a student registration fee of £80 and a one day registration fee of £60. The cost of the optional workshop dinner on Monday evening is £50. To book your place in the conference please visit the website.

To be considered for a short oral presentation or poster please submit an abstract through the meeting's easychair submission page. Abstracts should be prepared on one side of A4 (pdf format) and should describe new or recently published data science research. Submissions will be considered that demonstrate advances in data science or AI methodology and/or applications of data science.

A small number of spaces will be kept available until after decisions on submissions are released to ensure that speakers for accepted contributed presentations can register. However, due to space limitations at the venue and the popularity of last summer's conference, it's noted that anyone interested should register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
