Submission System: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/DS2024/

At least one of the authors must be a registered participant at the conference to present the work.


***SPECIAL ISSUE***
The authors of a number of selected papers presented at DS 2024 will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for possible inclusion in a special issue of Machine Learning journal (published by Springer) on Discovery Science. Fast-track processing will be used to have them reviewed and published.

***BEST PAPER AWARD***
There will be a Best Student Paper Award in the value of 550 Eur sponsored by Springer, and a Best Paper Award in the value of 550 Eur sponsored by Fondazione Area.

***CALL FOR PAPER: SPECIAL TRACK SOBIGDATA***
SoBigData RI (www.sobigdata.eu) is a distributed, Pan-European, multi-disciplinary research infrastructure aimed at using social mining and big data to understand the complexity of our contemporary, globally-interconnected society. This year, Discovery Science and SoBigData RI, collaborate in order to have a special track. The topics are the same of the main track but focussed on experiments for the SoBigData research spaces:
- Demography, Economy and Finance 2.0: traditional complex socio-economic financial systems in conjunction with emerging ones, in particular, block-chain & cryptocurrency markets and their applications such as smart property, Internet of things, energy trading, and smart contracts.
- Disaster Response and Recovery: methods and tools to analyze, monitor, and improve post-disaster reconstruction processes in socio-economic areas, spatial planning, environmental health in cooperation with national and international institutions.
- Health Studies: experiments addressing health-related issues, including medical, nutrition, environmental health and network medicine. It entails integrating multidisciplinary scientific research including machine learning techniques and AI technologies.
- Pervasive Intelligence in Cyber-Physical Systems for Future Society: experiments on AI models for a dynamic and automatic allocation of resources capable of reacting to changes in services, application requirements, sustainability, and user-generated traffic. Specific attention will also be given to approaches based on the emulation of biological brain mechanisms, called Cyber-Physical systems, with the aim of creating a “conscious system” able to self-control a large number of subsystems.
- Societal Debates and Misinformation: experiments analyzing both discussions on social media and journalistic production to understand which are the most debated topics.
- Next-Generation Internet: experiments investigating the effect of Next Generation Internet paradigms by developing user- and device-centric services for groups of mobile users based on direct communication between faredge devices, validating them in the same application areas.
- Sustainable Cities for Citizens: experiments about the usage of mobile devices data, georeferenced social media data, or other spatio-temporal data to model human behavior and activities.
- Submitted paper must refer to a specific research space. Submitted papers must contain all the references to data and methods used in order to be accessible to the SoBigData community and to be published on the platform catalog (only in case of acceptance).

Accepted papers will be published in DS2024 proceedings and disseminated through the research infrastructure channels.

***CALL FOR LATE BREAKING CONTRIBUTIONS ***
The Posters Track complements the research track of the conference and offers an opportunity to present late-breaking results and showcase innovative implementations in an informal and interactive setting. During the Poster session authors are encouraged to directly connect with conference participants and engage in discussions about their work.
We invite submissions relevant to Discovery Science and which address, but are not limited to, the topics of the Research Track. We also welcome work that has already been seen in other places but needs to be shared with the Discovery Science community.
Authors of the research papers not accepted for the Research track can be invited to present their work via a poster in the Poster session to discuss their research and scientific contributions with the community and expand their network with other researchers.

***IMPORTANT DATES***
Submission due: Monday June 22, 2024
Notification of acceptance: Monday July 27, 2024
Camera-ready version (extended abstract), author registration: Monday August 5, 2024
All dates are specified as 23:59:59 SST (Standard Samoa Time / Anywhere on Earth)

***SUBMISSION DETAILS***
Authors should submit an up-to two-page (excluding references) extended abstract for evaluation. All submissions must be written in English, using the PDF file format, following the formatting guidelines of the research track, and submitted electronically via the CMT submission system: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/DS2024/

Poster submissions should describe late-breaking research results, on-going research projects, or work-in-progress relevant to Discovery Science. Additional links to relevant resources are encouraged to be included in the submission.

The submissions should not be anonymised. Each submission will be reviewed by 2 members of the Program Committee.

All accepted posters will be available on the conference website. Authors are encouraged to link in the poster complementary materials (e.g. images, videos, code).

All papers accepted at the poster session will be published as extended abstracts (up to 4 pages in LNCS format) in CEUR proceedings.


***CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM***
The Doctoral Consortium (DC) provides an opportunity to present and discuss their doctoral research ideas and progress in a supportive, formative and yet critical environment and receive feedback from reviewers, mentors and peers from the field of Discovery Science. The DC will also provide opportunities to network and build collaborations with other members of the Discovery Science community. We welcome submissions across research Discovery Science-related domains and which address, but are not limited to, the topics of the Research Track.

The event is intended for early as well as middle/late-stage PhD candidates and asks them to formulate and submit a concrete PhD research proposal, preferably supported by some preliminary results. The proposal will be peer-reviewed. If accepted, students must register and physically attend the event to present their PhD research proposal in a Poster session. Details for the submission are found below under “Submission Details”.
