Advances and Applications of Data Science & Engineering


An International workshop organized with the collaboration of

  • Data Science and Engineering Consortium
  • Project CASI-CAM-CM, Comunidad de Madrid
  • DAMA Network, Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness



Reality speaks data, and Science and Engineering help us to understand its messages. This workshop consists of two series of activities. Mornings are dedicated to advances in data processing and their application to a number of relevant fields. Meetings of three research networks (Data Sci&Eng Consortium, CASI-CAM-CM, and DAMA) will be celebrated after the lunch time. The purpose is to promote both scientific knowledge and collaboration among different agents for getting benefit from data.
