Call for Speakers

The Call for Speakers is Now Closed.

We’re excited to announce that the call for speakers is officially open for the 11th annual Data Summit conference, to be held in Boston, May 8-9, 2024, with pre-conference workshops on May 7.

Data is at the heart of so many business operations. And it’s growing all the time. Technological advances contribute to our ability to handle vast amounts of data, make stored data more valuable, and eliminate data silos. Generative AI provides one, very important, avenue for data management, but being—or becoming—a data-driven organization entails much more than generative AI.

We’re looking forward to sharing knowledge, expertise, and insights about data-driven management, innovations, strategy, and technologies during the event. The Data Summit and AI & Machine Learning conferences focus on the business and technical aspects of Data Management, Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Architecture, and Emerging Technologies.

We are looking for dynamic speakers who can impress our well-informed and tech-savvy audience with insights and expertise on key technologies and strategies that work in the real world. We want speakers who can spark discussion and introduce new ideas. We would like a mix a formal presentations and interactive panel participation. Case studies that demonstrate practical uses of data are particularly welcome. Feel free to suggest something different from a normal conference presentation—we like creativity!
