The [RVA Tech Data/AI Summit](https://rvatech.com/rvatech-events/2023-rvatech-data-summit/) is a one-day conference dedicated to all things data engineering and data science. Richmond and the greater central Virginia area have an amazing, vibrant data science and engineering community and this conference is our chance to celebrate the practitioners in our community. This event is held at one of the city’s crown event spaces, the [Virginia Museum of Science’s Dewey Gottwald Center.](https://smv.org/visit/specialevents/dewey-gottwald-special-events-venue/)
2024 will be the sixth year for Data Summit. Our past versions were great events with sell-out crowds of over 400 attendees.
We are anticipating plenary keynote sessions and then multiple concurrent talks in separate tracks, at roughly 45 minutes each with ~5 planned session times throughout the day. We would like to have Q&A time, please incorporate it into the 45-minute session time allotted.
We are interested in any and all topics surrounding the vast Data Science, AI, and Data Engineering domains. Our audience will be about 400 people with a broad range of data science and engineering exposure ranging from students to deep practitioners to leadership.

## ABOUT THE TEAM:
The RVA Data Summit is run by a diverse team of volunteer committee members in service of the Richmond Technology Council. Volunteers and the council share a common goal of bringing the data community together.
## WHO SHOULD SUBMIT:
Everyone is encouraged to submit a proposal. Our primary goal is to have excellent sessions that inform and engage our attendees. Thus, the speaker selection committee will be favoring speakers who have a record of delivering excellent talks, but we also understand that everyone has to start somewhere. If you are a first-time speaker, please make sure your proposal is compelling and communicates why you are the right person to deliver it.
We are hoping to have a speaker pool that is representative of our local developer population and showcases some regional talent, but we welcome submissions from anyone anywhere. If you have an idea for a session, please submit it!
