SDS 2021 : 8th Swiss Conference on Data Science 2021
Call For Papers
Call for Papers - Scientifific Track (IEEE technically co-sponsored)
Data Science stands on the frontline of new scientific discoveries and plays a significant role in all aspects of our everyday lives.
The 8th Swiss Conference on Data Science - SDS2021– brings together researchers, developers, opinion leaders, decision
makers, and innovators with expertise in Data Science. The goal of SDS2021 is to foster the exchange of novel ideas for data
Topics of interest
We invite submissions of original research papers related to all areas of Data Science, especially best practice and use-case
oriented research work with technical depth and practical applicability. We especially want to solicit work in three key areas in
the coming year, namely:
• Intelligent Data Management
Businesses are asking increasingly complex questions. At the same time distributed data sources, graph databases and knowledge graphs have become ubiquitous. That leads to novel data architectures and open challenges with (semi-) automatic
data integration, data cleaning and efficient query processing at scale to enable interactive data exploration. Moreover, these architectures have to address Data Privacy, GDPR and security.
• Learning from Little
Many real-world Data Science tasks are faced with the challenge of small datasets and sparsely labeled data. This leads to vastly different approaches than the ones we use with Big Data.
• Smart Services
Smart Services turn digitalization into business benefits. It combines the intelligent analysis of data with the transformation
of user-centered services to provide added value for both service providers and customers. Smart services are not only
about technological solutions; there are much broader implications.
• Full Paper – present high-quality research contributions, including experiments, analysis, or system papers, as well as descriptions
of application results. Each submission can have up to 6 pages incl. references.
• Short Paper – present late-breaking results, work in progress, follow-up extensions, application case studies, or evaluations
of existing methods. Each submission can have up to 2 pages incl. references.
All submissions must be original works that have not been published previously in any conference proceedings, magazine,
journal, or edited book. The review process will be double blind, therefore we ask authors to take specific care to anonymize
their submission reasonably. Concurrent submissions are strictly forbidden. Submission of papers implies intention to register
and present the related content at the conference. The international Program Committee will carefully review the submissions.
Excellent content and presentation as demonstrated in the submission are mandatory for acceptance. Accepted submissions
will be presented in English (as a talk or a poster) by the authors at the conference. As last year, proceedings of all papers
presented at the conference will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore digital library. All submissions must be formatted
by following the IEEE 8.5” x 11” two-column format.
