The Program Committee of the 2017 IEEE International Conference on
Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA’2017) invites the submission
of technical papers for two main tracks: Research and Applications, and
a series of Special Sessions of the conference which will be held in
Tokyo, Japan, from October 19th to 21th, 2017. DSAA solicits both
theoretical and practical works on data science and advanced analytics.
All submissions will be blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the
basis of technical quality, relevance to conference topics of interest,
originality, significance, and clarity. All accepted papers, including
in main tracks and special sessions, will be published by IEEE and will be
submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The conference
proceedings will be submitted for EI indexing through INSPEC by IEEE.
Top quality papers accepted and presented at the conference will be
selected for extension and invited to the special issues of International
Journal of Data Science and Analytics (JDSA, Springer).

IEEE DSAA INTRODUCTION
Data science encompasses the areas of data analytics, machine learning,
statistics, optimization and managing big data, and has become essential
to glean understanding from large data sets and convert data into
actionable intelligence, be it data available to enterprises, society,
Government or on the Web. DSAA takes a strong interdisciplinary approach,
features by its strong engagement with statistics and business, in addition
to core areas including analytics, learning, computing and informatics.
DSAA fosters its unique Trends and Controversies session, Invited Industry
Talks session, Panel discussion, and four keynote speeches from statistics,
business, and data science. DSAA main tracks maintain a very competitive
acceptance rate (about 10%) for regular papers. Following the preceding
three editions DSAA’2016 (Montreal), DSAA’2015 (Paris), and DSAA’2014
(Shanghai), DSAA’2017 aims to provide a premier forum that brings together
researchers, industry practitioners, as well as potential users of big data,
for discussion and exchange of ideas on the latest theoretical developments
in Data Science as well as on the best practices for a wide range of
applications.

RESEARCH TRACK
The Research Track is aimed at collecting original (unpublished nor under
consideration at any other venue) and significant contributions related to
foundations of Data Science and Analytics.
Topics: http://www.dslab.it.aoyama.ac.jp/dsaa2017/cfpapers/#topics_research

APPLICATIONS TRACK
The Applications Track is aimed at collecting original papers describing
better and reproducible practices with substantial contributions to Data
Science and Analytics in real life scenarios.
Topics: http://www.dslab.it.aoyama.ac.jp/dsaa2017/cfpapers/#topics_applications

SPECIAL SESSIONS
DSAA special sessions substantially upgrade traditional workshops to
encourage emerging topics in data science while maintain rigorous selection
criteria. Proposals to organize special sessions and submissions to
respective special sessions are highly encouraged.

CONFERENCE VENUE
The DSAA’2017 conference will be held at Shinagawa Prince Hotel in Tokyo,
Japan. It is just two minutes walk from Shinagawa Station, which is the
first stop on the Tokaido Shinkansen from Tokyo Station and is about
20 minutes from Haneda Airport (Tokyo International Airport).
