Welcome to the 17th Int. Conference on Data Science (ICDATA’21)

Non-Attendance Policy/Presentation Modes due to Coronavirus/COVID-19 – please see info here.

We invite you to attend ICDATA’21 and to submit papers. ICDATA’21 offers a 4 day single-track conference, keynote speeches by world renowned scientists, special sessions and free tutorials on all aspects of data science. In the past, the data science conference has attracted a lot of presentations in formal sessions plus keynotes, and excellent tutorials, with a lot of attendees plus many more visitors from other conferences of the congress.
For further information on the 2021 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (CSCE’21) and its
conferences, please use the following link: CSCE’21

ICDATA’21 is part of CSCE’2021. ICDATA’21 is an international conference for academics and practitioners held simultaneously with other joint conferences as part of CSCE’21, the 2021 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing. CSCE’21 is one of the largest annual gatherings of researchers and practitioners in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. Each of the joint conferences in CSCE is a premier conference for presentation of advances in their respective fields. The congress includes 20 major tracks composed of 122 technical, research, and panel sessions as well as a number of keynote lectures and tutorials. All will be held simultaneously, same location and dates (July 26-29, 2021) to facilitate cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer. This year’s Congress will be a hybrid event that combines a “live” in-person event with a “virtual” online component.

It is anticipated that CSCE’21 will attract between 1,000 and 2,000 participants from about 75 countries/territories. Participants range from established researchers on Professorial level, starting researchers (post-doc, PhD, Masters and Bachelor level) and contract researchers unto practitioners applying all aspects of data science in private or public companies or research institutions. 2019, 54% of attendees were from academia, 25% from industry; 20% from government and funding agencies; and 1% unknown. About half of the attendees were from outside USA; from 69 nations.

ICDATA’21 attendees have full access to all sessions and tutorials of all other conferences‘ sessions, tracks, and planned tutorials (complete list of the 20 joint conferences) as well as to the ICDATA’21 social programme. CSCE is one of the largest annual conferences and promises many opportunities to present your work to an large, interdisciplinary audience and to extend our professional network. Each conference will have its own proceedings which will be indexed.

An important mission of CSCE is ‚Providing a unique platform for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives. One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.‘

ICDATA’21 attracts quality papers & presentations. The data science conference has been highly ranked in the past. Please to not confuse ICDATA (formerly DMIN) with other „multi-conferences“ with approximately 100% acceptance rates. The conference maintains its own program committee and manages its own thorough and objective review process of at least 2 independent reviewers (leading academics & practitioners). Over the past ten years, ICDATA has an average acceptance rate of approximately 50%. While this rate is not as low as for some top-tier conferences, it is respectable and still allows researchers from less developed countries to actively participate in the conference.

Publication & Indexing. Due to the high quality of published papers in the proceedings of CSCE in recent years, this year (2020) ALL accepted papers will be published by Springer Nature.

Publisher:  Springer Nature – Book Series: Transactions on Computational Science & Computational Intelligence, https://www.springer.com/series/11769

Indexation: Subject to Springer science indexation which includes: online Springer Link (link.springer.com/), Scopus (www.info.scopus.com), SCI Compendex, EI Compendex (www.ei.org), EMBASE, Web of Science, Inspec, ACM digital library, Google Scholar, EBSCO, and others.

In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers will appear in journals and edited research books; publishers include, Springer, Elsevier, BMC Genomics, BMC Bioinformatics, IEEE Access, and others. Each book in each series will be subject to publishers‘ science indexing products (which includes: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com; SCI Compendex, EI Compendex, www.ei.org; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com; Conference Proceedings Citation Index, Web of Science; Inspec; ACM digital library; Google Scholar; EBSCO; ProQuest; and others). See the web link below for a small subset of such publications: (some of these books and journal special issues have already received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields and/or identified as „Highly Accessed“ by publishers and/or science citation index trackers.)

Furthermore, ICDATA is aiming to be indexed by DBLP.

Due to numerous requests, the paper submission deadline is extended to June 8, 2021, but this extension is only meant for Short Research Papers and Poster Papers. Authors who have submitted their papers in response to earlier announcements, will receive the decision/status report of their papers according to the original announced dates (but please be patient in case of delay due to Covid-19).

Authors who have already received a decision on their papers are to follow the instructions and the deadlines that appeared in the notification that they have received.

Authors who have submitted accoding to the submission deadline of May 18 will receive their notification as soon as we have received the review reports by the assigned reviewers.

New dates (for authors who missed earlier deadlines), only SRP and EAP (no RRP; RRP submissions will not be processed anymore without further extra notification when submitted after May 18):

We look forward to seeing you at ICDATA’21/CSCE’21.

ICDATA, the International Conference on Data Science, is the renamed former International Conference on Data Mining, DMIN, which was held for thirteen years until 2017. In 2018, we renamed the 14th conference on this topic into ICDATA. The new name (and acronym) is more attractive and reflects a more modern perspective – although the content itself has not changed dramatically in the sense, that we still aim at organizing an interesting and modern conference related to all aspects of data science, e.g., data mining, machine learning, big data. We are the same organization team as in the past for DMIN, and we have the same processes (review feedback etc.).
The Big Data Conference, ABDA, is merged with ICDATA.
