- Austin, Texas, USA

Our 3rd annual KNIME Fall Summit is taking place from November 6-9, 2018 in Austin, Texas! Join us, along with top data scientists and industry thought leaders, for four days of learning more about KNIME Analytics Platform and how it's being used to solve complex data problems in areas such as life sciences, manufacturing, marketing, retail sales, and more. There'll also be plenty of opportunities to meet the people behind KNIME and hear about new and upcoming features, as well as discuss all things data science and data analytics with other KNIME users and enthusiasts.
