Nowadays there are several technologies and systems to collect data in real-time. Consequently the amount of data available electronically is huge, what makes the use of semi-autonomous techniques imperative in order to create new knowledge and support the decision-making process. In this context arises the Data Science concept.

DS4IDS intends to promote the discussion and the dissemination of emergent trends, new projects and contributions about applied data science in order to support the decision process. By bringing together researchers from distinct areas is expected to present new artefacts with scientific and societal contributions.

The motto of this track is "Data Science allows Intelligent Decision Support" and we are inviting the community to share this vision.

Innovative and exciting works are welcome in areas including but not limited to:

• Applied Data Science (to various domains, e.g. health, medicine, marketing, government, accounting, financing, management);
• Big Data;
• Business Intelligence;
• Cloud Computing;
• Data and Text Mining;
• Data architectures and Data Engineering;
• Decision Support;
• Information Retrieval;
• Intelligent Data analysis and visualization solutions;
• Intelligent Decision Support Systems;
• Interoperability;
• Knowledge-based solutions;
• Machine-Learning;
• Mobile and ubiquitous solutions;
• Multi-Agent systems;
• Online-Learning;
• Ontologies;
• Pervasive Systems;
• Predictive Analytics;
• Sensor-based systems;
• Solutions to create knowledge and support the decision (e.g. Healthcare; Finances; Education; Government);
• Streaming data;
• Web-Based solutions.

To submit a paper, please connect to the Submission site from the link available at the ICCSA 2016 web site:
Only papers submitted through the electronic system and strictly adhering to the relevant format will be considered for reviewing and publication.

The submission may fall into the following category: Special Session/Workshop Papers and the workshop. Then select DS4IDS – Data Science for Intelligent Decision Support Workshop.

The submitted paper must be between 10 and 16 pages long for LNCS publication and should be formatted according to the LNCS rules. Please consult the URL for formatting information and templates.

Each paper must deal with original and unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere (copyright problems fall entirely under responsibility of the authors). Each paper will be reviewed by at least three experts in the relevant field.

When a paper is accepted at least one of the authors has to register to the conference and deliver the related talk. Failure to do so shall lead to rejection of the application to attend next year conference and the exclusion of the paper for the current year proceedings.
