Data Science and Machine Learning conferences to attend in 2024

December 2, 2023

Planning for 2024 and looking for the conferences to attend? There is a myriad of great events focused on Data Science, applied Machine Learning, and MLOps! 

We made the research and selected the most interesting events and conferences for ML practitioners happening in 2024. We looked to include events of the most value to the community: the largest and most popular ones and those that are free to attend or openly publish the content after the event. We hope the list will help you plan your schedule for 2024.

If we’re missing some great events, please let us know (our Discord is the best place to do it). We’ll update this post at least once per quarter. 

Disclaimer: all information about listed events comes from their websites. We simply put it together.
