DSAA 2016 Call for Papers

Submission Website

The submission Web site for DSAA2016 is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dsaa2016.

Conference Papers Formatting

Conference paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of ten (10) pages, in the IEEE 2-column format (see the IEEE Proceedings Author Guidelines: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html ).

Restrictions and Directives

All paper submissions should be prepared for Double Blind reviewing. That is neither the reviewers are revealed nor the author information is disclosed. Often it does not suffice to simply hide the author names and affiliations to make the paper anonymous. Additional effort could be required to obfuscate the relationship between previous work and current authors by for instance addressing these authors in the third person. Careful attention should be put on the references to avoid revealing the identity of the paper authors.

Parallel submissions to other forums are not allowed. Papers submitted to DSAA 2016 should NOT be published or under consideration in other venues.

Important Dates

Paper Submission deadline: June 12, 2016, 11:59 PM PDT
Notification of acceptance: 29 July, 2016
Final Camera-ready papers due: 19 August, 2016


Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Digital Library. The conference proceedings will be submitted for EI indexing through INSPEC by IEEE. Top quality papers accepted and presented at the conference will be selected for extension and publication in the special issues of some international journals, including IEEE TKDE, ACM TKDD, ACM TIIS and WWWJ.


Data driven scientific discovery is an important emerging paradigm for computing in areas including social computing, services, Internet of Things, sensor networks, telecommunications, biology, health-care, and cloud. Under this paradigm, Data Science is the core that drives new researches in many areas, from environmental to social. There are many associated scientific challenges, ranging from data capture, creation, storage, search, sharing, modeling, analysis, and visualization. Among the complex aspects to be addressed we mention here the integration across heterogeneous, interdependent complex data resources for real-time decision making, streaming data, collaboration, and ultimately value co-creation. Data science encompasses the areas of data analytics, machine learning, statistics, optimization and managing big data, and has become essential to glean understanding from large data sets and convert data into actionable intelligence, be it data available to enterprises, Government or on the Web.

Following the previous two successful editions DSAA'2014, DSAA’2015, the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA’2016) aims to provide a premier forum that brings together researchers, industry practitioners, as well as potential users of big data, for discussion and exchange of ideas on the latest theoretical developments in Data Science as well as on the best practices for a wide range of applications.

DSAA is also technically sponsored by ACM through SIGKDD.

DSAA'2016 will consist of two main tracks: Research and Applications. The Research Track is aimed at collecting original contributions related to foundations of Data Science and Data Analytics. The Applications Track is aimed at collecting original papers (not published nor under consideration at any other venue) describing substantial contributions related to Data Science and Data Analytics in real life scenarios. DSAA solicits then both theoretical and practical works on data science and advanced analytics.
