International Conference:
Differential Equations for Data Science 2020 (DEDS2020)



  • Date: June 15(Mon) - 17(Wed), 2020


  • Place: Kyoto University (Kyoto, 606-8502, Japan)


  • Important Dates:

    • Call for presentations:
      Submission deadline: February 15, 2020

  • Aim:

  • This conference is mainly devoted to new mathematical aspects on machine learning algorithms, big data analysis, and other topics in data science area, from a viewpoint of differential equations. In recent years, several interesting connections between differential equations and data science have been found and attract attention from researchers of differential equations. In this conference, we will gather such researchers of differential equations who have interest in data science and try to shed new light on mathematical foundations on the topics in machine learning/data science.
