Junior Conference on Data Science and Engineering
Online, 1st-2nd February 2021


The fifth edition of the Paris-Saclay / IPP Junior Conference on Data Science and Engineering (JDSE) is addressed to first year Ph.D. students, M2 students and third year students at Engineering schools at Paris-Saclay and Institut Polytechnique de Paris. It will offer to 6 students the opportunity to present some scientific work developed during their internships or first year of Ph.D. thesis, and also to grow their critical sense thanks to a professional conference hosting prestigious invited speakers, academics and industry scientists. This edition should have been held in September, but due to the sanitary conditions, it is to be held online in early February.

The conference aims at gathering a vast audience and is an excellent means of discovering research activities in Data Science and Engineering.
