Joint Conference on Data Science 2018 (JCDS18)

Édimbourg, Royaume-Uni

Call for Papers

The aim of the Joint Conference on Data Science 2018 (JCDS18) is to bring together academics, policy-makers, and business people passionate about the emergent field of data science as a force for strategic transformation in an academic and professional context. This data science conference arises out of a series of successful predecessor conferences (like e.g. EDISON Champions Conferences initiated by the Europen H2020 project EDISON) ; the data science conference series has been created to foster a vital exchange between parties from industry and academia interested in the wide field of data science. Essentially, the increasing availability of vast libraries of digitised information influences the ways in which we comprehend and analyse our environment, and realise businesses for our societal benefit. In this situation, data science creates a transformational force with impact on current innovation potential in industry and academia. Given this transformational potential, it is inevitable that new teaching activities will play a significant role in realising this potential.

JCDS18 will be the first data science conference of this annual series of international conferences. The guiding theme of the conference series is deepening the role of data science as a transformational force for innovation, discovery, and societal benefit. JCDS18 therefore takes up topics that support this grand challenge, that are based around recent data science research and innovation trends besides teaching and training. The data science conference will realise this concern in an integrated programme of lightning workshops and scientific/technical conference tracks, invited talks from renowned speakers, along with network events, as well as accompanying demo sessions.
