The 2014 conference will examine „The role of the data scientist” in the evolving world of business analytics. What is a data scientist? What does a data scientist do? What critical skills do students need to develop in order to become data scientists? We will attempt to determine whether universities are prepared to educate future data science professionals. How to educate analysts so that they meet the criteria for becoming data scientists? How to construct academic programs suited to present-day business requirements? How to educate professionals capable of using data creatively in order to secure large-scale business value?
