The health and safety of our attendees and volunteers have always been our top priority at KDD, and we are taking measures beyond our existing practices in light of the unfolding COVID-19 outbreak. ACM SIGKDD and the KDD 2020 organization committee are monitoring the situation closely. We are investigating various feasible options proactively. Any updates in the status of KDD 2020 will be posted on this website. Please check this website regularly for updates. We are following updates on the situation from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), California and San Diego County ordinances, and the ACM. We urge all attendees to keep informed on risks, precautions, and symptoms and to make educated decisions.

Keynote Speakers

The annual SIGKDD conferences have a strong reputation for delivering unparalleled peer learning, networking and idea sharing opportunities within data science, data mining, knowledge discovery, large-scale data analytics and big data. The event’s main focus is to connect the world’s best data scientists with one another in order to discuss, address and advance the application of data science to benefit all aspects of society. KDD 2020 is looking to be an amazing year.
