THEMES
Is Data Science a new approach to solving problems, one that applies across disciplines as various as physics, sociology and linguistics? Or are machine learning, deep convoluted neural nets, and other exciting phrases just statistics on steroids?

Recent developments in Data Science broadly construed, and the products these have yielded (or promise to yield) are undeniably exciting: identifying and predicting disease, personalized healthcare recommendations, automating digital ad placement, predicting incarceration rates, and countless other tools have attracted a lot of attention. But what about the process behind these products? Are these amazing feats based on traditional scientific discoveries? Or does the problem-solving approach which is being implemented have an even wider range of applicability than we could imagine? While the Sciences and Engineering are driving the field, traditional Humanities and the Social Sciences are also experimenting and contributing to a growing body of knowledge around the use of data. This conference seeks to understand the nature and significance of data science for traditional modes of inquiry across the full spectrum. We also seek to interrogate underlying ethical issues that arise not only in research but also when data science is relied on in decision-making – this is where notions of explainability, fairness and discrimination form part of the practical application of responsible data science.

As a launching event of the Data Science Across Disciplines Research Group at the University of Johannesburg, this conference brings together reflections on both the actual and potential impact of data science across disciplines and sectors. Submissions are welcome from any disciplinary background, with a focus on scientific contributions, conceptual themes, and reflections within the areas of:
1. Responsible Data Science: Reliable and Trustworthy approaches for data engineering, data science and modern machine learning.
2. Algorithmic Fairness, Transparency, and Explainability.
3. Social and Ethical aspects of Responsible Data Science.
4. Use cases illustrating the cross-disciplinary nature of the field of Data Science.

All papers must be pitched in a suitably accessible way and speak to the cross-disciplinary nature of the event.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
Please ensure that you have registered for the conference before submitting an abstract: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJAvd-qtrD0oGtbR4W-weADIXwk6OTmmOMJo
