David InterContinental Hotel Tel Aviv, Israel


hayaData conference is a not-for-profit event built for the data community, data engineers & scientists, BI & data analysts, developers, researchers, and everyone interested in big data! 

This year will be the 4th year in a row that we're having the hayaData conference, and it is getting bigger and better every year.
hayaData is the place to share knowledge, hear insights from leading speakers, learn about the newest industry tools & best practices for working with big data, and mingle with data experts.

We <3 data, and we created this conference with the goal of bringing the data community together - Every fan of data is invited!

We invite the community to submit talks and to join us as speakers - everyone is welcome to submit (yes, even first-time speakers)! As our community grows, it would be great to see more and more people share their knowledge with one another. 

The talks are selected by the hayaData committee team, which includes experts from our community.

The selected talks will be recorded on the conference day and uploaded to the hayaData YouTube channel afterward.
