About the Conference

The School of Industrial Engineering at the Universidad Diego Portales, Chile, is proud to organize the International Conference on Data Science ICDS2023 to be held in Santiago of Chile from November 8 to 10, 2023. The theme of the conference is Multidimensional Perspectives: From Statistical Learning to Data Science Applications. The conference is sponsored by the International Association for Statistical Computing. The objectives are:

  • to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art of the ongoing research in statistical learning and data science

  • to contribute to forming a critical mass of researchers and practitioners in statistical learning and data science

  • to involve students and young researchers in scientific outreach activities, and
  • to enrich the interdisciplinary dialogue between theory and application at a national and international level. 

The conference is an in-person conference, although some sessions will be streamed virtually in hybrid sessions.

Santiago of Chile

Santiago, also known as Santiago de Chile, is the capital and largest city of Chile as well as one of the largest cities in the Americas. It is the center of Chile’s most densely populated region, the Santiago Metropolitan Region, whose total population is 8 million which is nearly 40% of the country’s population, of which more than 6 million live in the city’s continuous urban area. The city is entirely in the country’s central valley. Most of the city lies between 500–650 m (1,640–2,133 ft) above mean sea level.

Founded in 1541 by the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia, Santiago has been the capital city of Chile since colonial times. The city has a downtown core of 19th-century neoclassical architecture and winding side-streets, dotted by art deco, neo-gothic, and other styles.

Santiago’s cityscape is shaped by several stand-alone hills and the fast-flowing Mapocho River, lined by parks such as Parque Forestal and Balmaceda Park. The Andes Mountains can be seen from most points in the city. The city outskirts are surrounded by vineyards and Santiago is within an hour of both the mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Santiago is the political and financial center of Chile and is home to the regional headquarters of many multinational corporations. The Chilean executive and judiciary are located in Santiago, but Congress meets mostly in nearby Valparaíso. Santiago is named after the biblical figure Saint James. The city will host the 2023 Pan American Games.
