The 7th IEEE/ACM/ASA International Conference on Data Science and
Advanced Analytics (DSAA) features its strong interdisciplinary
synergy between statistics (via ASA), computing and
information/intelligence sciences (IEEE and ACM), and cross-domain
interactions between academia and business for data science and
analytics. DSAA sets up a high standard for its organizing committee,
keynote speeches, submissions to main conference and special sessions,
and a competitive rate for paper acceptance. DSAA has been widely
recognized as a dedicated flagship in data science and analytics such
as by the Google Metrics and China Computer Foundation as an
influential event in the area.
The 7th IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced
Analytics (DSAA’2020) will provide a premier forum that brings
together researchers, industry and government practitioners, as well
as developers and users in statistics, computing science, and
intelligence science for the exchange of the latest theoretical
developments in Data Science and Analytics and the best practice for a
wide range of applications. The conference invites submission of
papers describing innovative research on all aspects of data science
and advanced analytics as well as application-oriented papers that
make significant, original, and reproducible contributions to
improving the practice of data science and analytics in real-world
DSAA’2020 is a dual-track conference consisting of a Research Track
and an Research Track. DSAA’2020 will also feature a peer-reviewed
Student Poster session and an Industry Poster session, whose purpose
is to showcase recent and early-stage research developments on topics
that are of interest to students and industry/government practitioners
in data science and analytics.
The Research Track solicits the latest, original and significant
contributions related to foundations and theoretical developments of
Data Science and Advanced Analytics with reproducible results
available through a public git repository. Topics of interest include
but are not limited to:
* Data science foundations and theories
* Mathematics and statistics for data science and analytics
* Understanding data characteristics and complexities
* Data quality and misinformation
* Models, algorithms, and methods
* Optimization, inference, and regularization
* Infrastructures, and systems
* Evaluation, explanation, visualization, and presentation
* Survey and review
The Application track solicits original, impactful and actionable
application results of Data Science and Advanced Analytics across
various disciplines and domains, including business, government,
healthcare and medical science, physical sciences, and social
sciences. Submissions address a real problem on real-life data that
is reproducible ideally through a public git repository, providing
inspiring results to policy-makers, end-users or practitioners or
highlighting new practical challenges for researchers. Topics of
interest include but are not limited to:
* Domain-driven data science and analytics practice
* Real-world applications and case studies
* Operationalizable infrastructures, platforms and tools
* Deployment, management and decision-making
* System and software demonstrations
* Social and economic impact modeling
* Ethics, social issues, privacy, trust, and bias
* Reflections and lessons for better practice
DSAA Awards and Travel Grants
DSAA features its Best Research Paper award and Best Application Paper
award (with honorarium USD$500 each), Next-generation Data Scientist
award (honorarium USD1,000), and IEEE CIS and DSAA travel awards.
Paper Formatting, Length, Double-blind Reviewing, and Reproducible
The paper length allowed for the papers in the Research and Application
tracks is a maximum of ten (10) pages, whereas the paper length allowed for
the Student Poster and Industry Poster papers is a maximum of two (2)
The format for both types of papers is the standard 2-column
U.S. letter style IEEE Conference template. See the IEEE Proceedings
for further information and instructions.
All submissions will be blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the
basis of technical quality, relevance to the conference’s topics of
interest, originality, significance, and clarity. Author names and
affiliations must not appear in the submissions, and bibliographic
references must be adjusted to preserve author anonymity. Submissions
failing to comply with paper formatting and authors anonymity will be
rejected without reviews.
Because of the double-blind review process, non-anonymous papers that
have been issued as technical reports or similar cannot be considered
for DSAA’2020. An exception to this rule applies to arXiv papers that
were published in arXiv at least a month prior to DSAA’2020 submission
deadline. Authors can submit these arXiv papers to DSAA provided that
the submitted paper’s title and abstract are different from the one
appearing in arXiv. Papers that appear in arXiv from the DSAA’2020
submission deadline until the review process has ended, are not
Authors are also encouraged to support their papers by providing
through a git-type public repository the code and data to support the
reproducibility of their results.
Proceedings, Indexing and Special Issues
All accepted full-length papers will be published by IEEE and will be
submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore 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 invited to the special
issues of the International Journal of Data Science and Analytics
(JDSA, Springer) and some other journals we are working on.
Submissions to the main conference including Research Track &
Applications Track are available from Easy Chair
Reproducibility & supplementary: The advancement of data science
depends heavily on reproducibility. We strongly recommend that the
authors release their code and data to the public. Authors can provide
an optional two (2) page supplement at the end of their submitted
paper (it needs to be in the same PDF file and start on page 11). This
supplement can only be used to include (i) information necessary for
reproducing the experimental results reported in the paper (e.g.,
various algorithmic and model parameters and configurations,
hyper-parameter search spaces, details related to dataset filtering
and train/test splits, software versions, detailed hardware
configuration, etc.), and (ii) any data, pseudo-code and proofs that
due to space limitations, could not be included in the main
manuscript. Papers entering into the Best Research Paper and Best
Application Paper awards must show solid evidence for reproducibility.
Authorship: The list of authors at the time of submission is final and
cannot be changed.
Dual submissions: DSAA is an archival publication venue as such
submissions that have been previously published, accepted, or are
currently under-review at peer-review publication venues (i.e.,
journals, conferences, workshops with published proceedings, etc.) are
not permitted. DSAA has a strict no dual submission policy.
Conflicts of interest (COI): COIs must be declared at the time of
submission. COIs include employment at the same institution at the
time of submission or in the past three years, collaborations during
the past three years, advisor/advisee relationships, plus family and
close friends. Program chairs, poster chairs, special session chairs
and tutorial chairs are not allowed to submit proposals to their
managed tracks and sessions.
Attendance: At least one author of each accepted paper must register
in full and attend the conference to present the paper. No-show papers
will be removed from the IEEE Xplore proceedings.
General enquiries about paper submissions should be submitted to
