After much consideration, the General Chairs, Executive Committee and Organizing Committee for KDD 2020 have decided to take the conference fully virtual. The events of the past few months and the continued safety concerns have led us to make this difficult decision. Our focus now is on creating a virtual conference with the vibrancy, excellence and sense of community that KDD has become known for.

In the coming weeks, the agenda and more programmatic details will be announced, watch the website and our social media posts. Our plans include all the tracks and content you’ve come to count on at KDD, and five exciting keynote speakers! Registration is now open, clear your calendar for August 23-27, 2020, and enjoy access to all the virtual content live and on demand the week of the event.

We’ll look forward to seeing you next year, when we will hope to be together in a safe manner. We are also pursuing a KDD 2023 Conference in San Diego, so that we can realize the hard work this committee has put in and showing the KDD community this beautiful location!

Until then, please spread the word, and feel free to drop us a note with any questions or virtual best practices that you’d like to share.

All the Best,

Rajesh Gupta and Yan Liu
