The 8th Swedish Workshop on Data Science (SweDS20) will be hosted by the Luleå University of Technology (LTU), in 2020 on October 29 and 30, in Luleå, Sweden.

SweDS is a national event with a focus of maintaining and developing Swedish data science research and its applications by fostering the exchange of ideas and promoting collaboration within and across disciplines. This yearly workshop brings together researchers and practitioners of data science working in a variety of academic, commercial, industrial, or other sectors. Past workshops has included presentations from a variety of domains, e.g., computer science, linguistics, economics, archaeology, environmental science, education, journalism, medicine, health-care, biology, sociology, psychology, history, physics, chemistry, geography, forestry, design, and music. SweDS20 is organized by the Luleå University of Technology (LTU).
