Welcome to the 14th Int. Conference on Data Science (ICDATA’18)

ICDATA, the International Conference on Data Science, is the renamed former International Conference on Data Mining, DMIN, which was held in the past thirteen years. Therefore, we will continue with the 14th conference on this topic. We hope that the new name (and acronym) will be more attractive and reflect 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.).

We invite you to attend ICDATA’18 and to submit papers. ICDATA’18 offers a 4 day single-track conference, keynote speeches by world renowned scientists, special sessions and free tutorials on all aspects of data mining. In the past, DMIN (the former acronym of the 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.

ICDATA’18 is part of CSCE’18. ICDATA’18 is an international conference for academics and practitioners held simultaneously with other joint conferences as part of CSCE’18, the 2018 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing. CSCE’18 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, held simultaneously in the same place to facilitate  cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer. It is anticipated that CSCE’18 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 mining in private or public companies or research institutions. Last year, 55% of CSCE attendees were from academia, 24% from industry; 20% from government and funding agencies; and 1% unknown. About half of the attendees were from outside USA; from 72 nations.

ICDATA’18 attendees have full access to all sessions and tutorials of all other conferences‘ sessions, tracks, and planned tutorials (for the complete list of the 20 joint conferences) as well as to the ICDATA’18 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’18 attracts quality papers & presentations. The data mining (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 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.

Citation Index. All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books (ISBN), imprinted by the American Council on Science and Education, and distributed/published by CSREA (Computer Science Research, Education, and Applications Press). The proceedings will also be made available online. The printed proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at the conference. The books will be indexed in science databases, including EBSCO (www.ebsco.com), one of the largest subject index systems, and others. ACM Digital Library is also including the titles into its databases as well as ProQuest indexing databases and others, In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 40%) will appear in journals and 12 edited research books; publishers include, Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others). Each book in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science indexing products (which includes: Scopus, SCI Compendex, Engineering Village, EMBASE, 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. ICDATA is also planning to publish an edited book volume (Springer).
