Conference Tracks

Core Data Engineering

Read more

Our Core Data Engineering track gives practical examples of full-stack data architectures, data pipelines and plumbing systems, and reference examples of ETL functions & workflow schedulers. The track explores the stories behind the challenges faced by experienced engineers when building modern data infrastructures and features key open sources projects our speakers are keen to share with the community.

Data Science & AI Impact on Life

Read more

This track focuses on the impact of data science on human beings and our environment. We look for applied science that will augment our interactions in the world and help us make informed decisions on issues that are relevant or urgent in order to make measurable improvements in our quality of life. The speakers in this track are selected for their abilities to address a relevant unmet need, and to provide an in-depth technical explanation of a novel data-driven solution in the areas of health & wellness, social interactions, learning, and economics.

Streaming Systems

Read more

This track looks at various tooling used to build real-time applications and the underlying data infrastructure that supports the movement of data to computation. Examples of talks include case studies on how applications use messaging systems, how applications maintain consistency and correctness while ingesting large amounts of data, and computational frameworks for processing data with low latency. This is a practical track for engineers looking to design the backbone of a data intensive application architecture.

Data Science & AI Impact on Business

Read more

This track addresses the major challenges faced when applying DS/ML/AI to corporate data with an emphasis on the common aspects data teams face: identifying the data you have, deciding how to organize and clean it, building the actual algorithmic models themselves, and ultimately, integrating the models into an application and scaling it into the organization’s IT systems.

Our Place In Barcelona

Data Council Barcelona VenueOur European Data Council event is hosted this year at UTOPIA126 in Poblenou's 22@ district, which has quickly become Barcelona's tech and startup hub.

Since the late 90's, Poblenou has transformed into a city of knowledge, with its abandoned factories being used for new economic activities, design studios and housing adapted to the needs of today.

UTOPIA126's historical and industrial place is a multi-functional space used by artists, market vendors and for meetings. Conveniently located within 1km from central Barcelona and close to metro and city buses.

Barcelona has many factors that are making it increasingly attractive for big corporations as well as small startups: quality of life, pool of talent, affordability, tech ecosystem, etc.
