About the Conference


Planning to tune into MDS20 talks? Remember to check out the schedule; some talks require registration. All talks will happen live online and then be available afterwards on SIAM’s Conference YouTube channel. Additionally, all invited plenaries will be livestreamed on SIAM’s YouTube in order to avoid exceeding registration caps.

This conference will provide a forum to present work that advances mathematical, statistical, and computational methods in the context of data and information sciences and aims to unite researchers who are building mathematical foundations for data science and making principled applications to science, engineering, technology, and society.

MDS20 is held in cooperation with GAMM. (Representative- Gitta Kutyniok, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany)
