The RVA Tech Data Science Summit is a one-day conference dedicated to all things data science. Richmond and the greater central Virginia area have an amazing, vibrant data science and engineering community. It was time to have a conference to learn and celebrate our community.
2020 will be the second year for Data Science Summit. Last year’s inaugural conference was a great event with a sell-out crowd of over 400 attendees. We expect this year to be bigger and better.
We are anticipating plenary keynote sessions and then running 4 concurrent talks in separate tracks, at roughly 45 minutes each with ~5 planned session times throughout the day. If you would like to have Q&A time, please incorporate into the 45 minute session time allotted. We are interested in any and all topics surrounding the vast data science domain. Our audience will be about 500 people with a broad range of data science and engineering exposure ranging from deep practitioners to folks with less exposure to implementation practices, but more managerial responsibility.

The RVA Data Science Summit is run by a diverse team of volunteer committee members in service of the Richmond Technology Council. Volunteers and the council share a common goal of bringing the data science community together.
Everyone is encouraged to submit a proposal. Our primary goal is to have excellent sessions that inform and engage our attendees. Thus, the speaker selection committee will be favoring speakers who have a record of delivering excellent talks, but we also understand that everyone has to start somewhere. If you are a first-time speaker, please make sure your proposal is compelling and communicates why you are the right person to deliver it.
We are hoping to have speaker pool that is representative of our local developer population and showcases some regional talent, but we welcome submissions from anyone anywhere. If you have an idea for a session, please submit it!
