Data science has emerged as a topic encompassing machine learning and data mining, statistics, big data management and discovery science. This special issue focuses on applications, end-to-end systems and experience reporting rather than proposal of novel algorithms and model development methods. The emphasis is shifted towards the combination of (i) advanced algorithmic solutions for data analytics, (ii) implementation and engineering techniques so that the resulted products are applied to address specific real-world problems, and (iii) experience reporting preferably through large-scale evaluation of working prototypes. The described systems should be either made publicly available or described in adequate detail so that third-parties can re-implement them with reasonable effort.

Submitted articles must not have been previously published or currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. For work that has been published previously in a workshop or conference, it is required that submissions to the special issue contain at least 50% new content; the submission of such manuscripts must be accompanied by a “Summary of Differences” cover letter explaining how the authors extended their previously published work. The special issue particularly encourages submissions falling in the scope described above from the following application areas or domains:

  • Industry 4.0
  • Smart cities
  • Healthcare industry
  • Social networks
  • Biomedicine and life sciences
  • Astronomy, physics, chemistry and material sciences
  • Data integration
  • Data preparationInternet of Things
  • Massive Parallelism
  • Streaming platforms
  • Edge/fog computing


Submission system opening:  1st June 2020
Submission system closing:    15th August 2020
First review notification:         15th October  2020
Resubmission of revised manuscript: 15th November 2020
Final notification due:            15th December 2020
Final submission deadline:    30th December 2020


For submission (maximum 20 pages by using the journal style file), as soon as the system opens, authors should follow the “Instruction for Authors” as appear at the journal’s submission webpage

Authors should select ‘SI: Applications of Data Science’ during the submission step ‘Additional Information‘.
