Late Breaking Papers (LBP), Positions Papers (PP), Abstract/Poster Papers (APP)

New Extended Submission Deadline: June 18, 2018
(see explanation below)


The 2018 International Conference on Data Science
(former DMIN: Int. Conf. on Data Mining,
merged with ABDA: Int. Conf. on Advances in Big Data Analytics)

Date and Location: July 30-August 2, 2018, Las Vegas, USA
Luxor (MGM property; renovated)


(please note that the pdf shows the old deadline May 31, 2018)

This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to submit their papers in response to earlier „Call For Papers“. Therefore, authors who have ALREADY submitted papers in response to earlier „Call For Papers“ should IGNORE this announcement. (Those who have been notified that their papers have been accepted, should still follow the instructions that were emailed to them; including meeting the deadlines mentioned in the notifications that were sent to them. Those who have not yet received a notification, will soon receive one).

Explanation of the extended deadline (from May 31 to June 18): We received numerous requests to extend the deadline due to the fact that the original date coincided with USA Memorial holiday and also the academic break between the Spring and Summer terms. Thus, the conference decided to extend the deadlines. Authors who had submitted papers in response to earlier announcements, will receive notifications based on the original dates and so should follow the deadlines that appear in the notification that they will receive (or have already received).

Authors of accepted papers who submitted their papers for evaluation AFTER June 2, 2018, will have their papers published in the proceedings soon after the conference. The conference would then make the necessary arrangements to provide the published proceedings (that also includes
the late papers) to such authors after the conference.


You are invited to submit a paper (Late Breaking Paper, Position Paper, Abstract/Poster Paper) for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (each with a unique international ISBN number) and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data. In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 40%) will appear in journals and edited research books; publishers include, Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others).


1. LATE BREAKING PAPERS: describe late-breaking/recent developments in the field. The maximum number of pages is 7. If accepted, The length of the final/Camera-
Ready paper will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages andthe author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a formal session.

2. POSITION PAPERS: enable discussions on emerging topics without the experimentation normally present in an academic paper. Commonly, such papers will substantiate the opinions or positions put forward with evidence from an extensive objective discussion of the topic. The maximum number of pages is 4. If accepted, The length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 4 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a formal session.

3. ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPERS: describe research roadmaps (similar to PhD plan or PhD prospectus). The maximum number of pages is 2. If accepted, The length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 2 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a discussion/poster session.

The categories can be found in our paper submission system. Please select the appropriate category in the submission process.

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 30-August 2, 2018. The complete list of CSCE joint conferences can be found here. ICDATA is part of the Congress.
