Call For Papers

17 JULY 2016
We welcome you to participate in The 2nd International Conference on Soft Computing in Data Science (SCDS) 2016 which will be held in Hotel (TBA), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 21-22 September 2016. Data science can improve corporate decision-making and performance, personalize medicine and healthcare services and improve organizations efficiency and performance. Data Science is about learning from your data. Thus, with the advancement in computer technology huge amount of data can be stored and harnessed. Data science and analytics plays an important role in various disciplines including business, medical and health informatics, social sciences, manufacturing, economics, accounting and finance.

SCDS2016 aims to provide a platform for discussions on leading edge methods and also addressing challenges, problems and issues in machine learning in data science and analytics. The role of machine learning in data science and analytics is significantly increasing in every field from engineering to life sciences and with advanced computer algorithms, solutions for complex real problems can be simplified. For the advancement of society in the 21st century, there is a need to transfer knowledge and technology to industrial applications to solve real-world problems. SCDS2016 have invited renowned international and local keynote speakers who are academia or practitioners to share their knowledge and experience in the area of machine learning in data science and analytics.

SCDS2016 aims to attract researchers who are actively engaged both in theoretical and practical aspects of Soft Computing in Data Science. The focus is on Machine Learning for Data Science and Analytics.
