Call For Papers
9th ACM IKDD CODS and 27th COMAD
5th Joint International Conference on
Data Science & Management of Data
January 8-10, 2022
Bangalore, India | Hybrid Event
We are pleased to announce The 5th Joint International Conference on Data Sciences and Management of Data to be held in Bangalore, India, on January 8-10, 2022 as a hybrid event. CODS-COMAD is a premier international conference focusing on scientific work in Databases, Data Sciences and their applications. Being held for the 5th time as a common conference bringing together the COMAD and the CODS communities, the conference invites researchers in the field of databases, data sciences and their applications to submit their original work.
- CALL FOR PAPERS -
The research track invites full as well as short papers describing innovative and original research contributions on all aspects of data management, data science, machine learning, AI and their applications focussing on one or more aspects of Theory, System Design, Experiments and Benchmarking, Scalability, Algorithms, etc. The goal of short papers is to provide a venue for relatively simpler but innovative ideas such as engineered solutions, exciting work-in-progress or even negative results that would be interesting to the broader community. Authors of accepted papers will get an opportunity to showcase their work as an oral presentation. For more details visit: https://cods-comad.in/call-for-research-track-papers/
APPLIED DATA SCIENCE TRACK
The Applied Data Sciences (ADS) track invites both full as well as short papers describing the design, implementation and results of solutions and systems for application of data science techniques to real-world problems. Technical approaches can include data science, data mining, applied machine learning, testing and governance of data science models and solutions, DevOps for data science. Accepted papers will be given the opportunity to present their work as an oral presentation. For more details, visit: https://cods-comad.in/call-for-applied-data-science-track-papers/
Tutorials at CODS-COMAD offer a platform to showcase state-of-the-art tools and technologies to support research, development and applications of data systems, data science, data management and platforms, data-driven applications etc. We solicit tutorial proposals on all topics of interest to the CODS-COMAD conference. For more details, visit: https://cods-comad.in/call-for-tutorial-proposals/
The demonstration (demo) track invites submissions from academia and industry where a live or pre-recorded demonstration of the software system, prototype, conceptual design or library adds significant value to the work. Topics of interest include data systems, data science, data management and platforms, data-driven applications etc. The scope for demos is broad and includes all topics of interest to the CODS-COMAD conference. The demo should be the result of innovative work including solving novel technical or research problems and/or creating novel UI/UX. Authors of accepted demo track papers will have the option to do either a recorded demo or a live demo at the conference site. For more details, visit: https://cods-comad.in/call-for-demo-track-papers/
YOUNG RESEARCHERS' SYMPOSIUM
The Young Researchers’ Symposium at CODS-COMAD 2022 invites submissions from students and postdoctoral fellows. This is a unique opportunity for young researchers to have fruitful peer-to-peer discussions and to get feedback from leading senior researchers about their current research work. Submissions to the Young Researchers’ Symposium (YRS) are invited on the topics such as data systems, data science, data management and platforms, data-driven applications etc. We welcome many kinds of papers, such as, but not limited to: novel research papers, work-in-progress papers, appraisal papers of existing methods and tools (e.g., lessons learned). The first author of any submission should be an Undergraduate/Postgraduate/Ph.D. student or a Postdoctoral researcher affiliated with any academic institution. Authors of accepted papers will get a chance to present their work both as a poster and a quick lightning talk at the conference. For more details, visit:
NOTE: We also welcome submissions related to the use of analytics and data systems across the tracks to manage and learn from the COVID-19 epidemic, including but not
limited to epidemic modeling, healthcare, disease detection, resilient logistics, etc.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RESEARCH AND APPLIED DATA SCIENCE TRACK
Check the link below to help you decide which track to submit your paper to. It is the authors’ responsibility to submit their paper into the appropriate track. Papers that do not satisfy the requirements (e.g., a research track paper) might be rejected without a formal review.
All submissions should be formatted in the standard ACM style available at:
https://bit.ly/3dEPFW9. Word authors should use: https://bit.ly/39MMH0r
The length of the submission should not exceed the page limit mentioned below. Submissions not adhering to the page limit will be rejected without review
Given the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, CODS-COMAD will be held as a hybrid event this year. Authors of accepted papers will always have the option of presenting their work virtually. We may move to a fully virtual event depending on the situation. The decision will be posted as we get closer to the conference.
