CfP (Late)/Topics




The 2020 International Conference on Data Science

Date and Location: July 27 – 30, 2020, Las Vegas, USA
Luxor (MGM property; renovated)

Extended Paper Submission Deadline: June 8, 2020

Co-Located: July 27-30, 2020, Luxor (MGM), Las Vegas, USA

In case of hesitation by some authors/speakers to travel during Year 2020 (due to Coronavirus), the CSCE Steering Committee has developed a policy for Non-Attendance. In summary, for Year 2020, the non-attendance by any registered author would not negatively impact the publication of his/her
paper (i.e., for Year 2020, formal presentation is optional.) Having said the above, based on a survey conducted recently, we anticipate that the majority of speakers/authors to physically attend the CSCE 2020 Congress in late July.

Non-Attendance Policy due to Coronavirus/COVID-19: please see infos here.

Proceedings Publisher:  Springer Nature – Book Series: Transactions on Computational Science & Computational Intelligence,
Indexation: Subject to Springer science indexation which includes: online Springer Link (, Scopus (, SCI Compendex, EI Compendex (, EMBASE, Web of Science, Inspec, ACM digital library, Google Scholar, EBSCO, and others.

All accepted papers will be published by Springer Nature in research book series: Transactions on Computational Science & Computational Intelligence. The books will be widely disseminated (to over 1,000 libraries) and will be accessible by tens of thousands of individuals). It should be noted that publication of papers in research books would permit each paper to be quite comprehensive (if need be) and so the publication value would be comparable to journal publications and thus would be listed as such in the list of research contributions by most individuals. Our set of previous published books by Springer and others received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields with many papers receiving over 100 citations (some received over 700 citations).


In order to leverage synergy between various CS & CE fields, the program committees of a number of premier conferences have their 2020 events held at one venue (same location and dates). Thus, this year, The Congress is composed of a number of tracks (joint-conferences, tutorials, sessions, workshops, poster and panel discussions); all will be held simultaneously, same location and dates: July 27-30, 2020. For the complete list of joint conferences, see below (more detailed information
appears at: )

We anticipate having between 1,000 and 2,000 participants in the Congress. 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 27-30, 2020. Last year, the Congress had attracted speakers/authors and participants affiliated with over
158 different universities (including many from the top 50 ranked institutions), major IT corporations (including: Microsoft, Google, Apple, SAP, Facebook, Oracle, Amazon, Yahoo, Samsung, IBM, Ebay, GE, Siemens, Philips, Ericsson, BAE Systems, Hitachi, NTT, Twitter, Uber Technologies, …), major corporations (including: Exxon Mobil, Johnson & Johnson, JPMorgan Chase, PetroChina, GlaxoSmithKline, HSBC, Airbus, Boeing, Hyundai, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, …), government research agencies (NSF, NIH, DoE, US Air Force, NSA National Security Agency, Central Intelligence Agency, …), US national laboratories (including, NASA National Aeronautics and Space Administration, ANL Argonne National Lab, Sandia National Lab, ORNL Oak Ridge National Lab, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, Pacific Northwest National Lab, …), and a number of Venture Capitalists as well as distinguished speakers discussing Intellectual Property issues. Last year, 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 is part of the Congress.
