Please submit a full-length paper (up to 10 page IEEE 2-column format) through our online submission system (for more info, please visit SABID 2015 website).
Papers should be formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript Formatting Guidelines.
Accepted papers (after being carefully reviewed by at least 3 PC members and accepted for our workshop) will be included in the 2015 IEEE International Conference Data Mining Workshop Proceedings.
Selected papers (after their expansion and second round of independent review) will be invited into a special journal issue. We contacted the editorial board of Elsevier’s journal on “Astronomy and Computing” and received encouraging response about the possibility of offering a special issue of this journal based on the works presented during the SABID 2015 workshop.
