Research Track - Important Dates
Submission date 22nd Aug, 2018 15th Aug, 2018
Notification date 15th Oct, 2018
Camera ready: 1st Nov, 2018
The industry track aims to bring together leading industry and academia practitioners to share their insights, expertise and experiences related to deployments of solutions in industry and government that address real-world challenges and highlight new and important research directions. We invite original papers describing case studies involving applied research in areas such as, but not limited to, education, transportation, infrastructure monitoring, energy, real-estate, manufacturing, finance, retail, healthcare, e-commerce, telecommunications, social media, law, public safety, and computational advertising. Authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to present their work in an oral session.
The demo track provides a forum for researchers, developers, and technologists to present their first-hand experience of software systems, prototypes, conceptual designs, libraries, etc., in an interactive setting. We invite novel submissions that cover any aspect of innovation including Data, Algorithms, and Applications. The submissions should present a demonstrable solution to a problem of interest either in the form of a prototype or an operational system. Authors of accepted papers will have a chance to make a short oral presentation and also give a demo.
The Young Researchers' Symposium (YRS) provides an excellent opportunity for young researchers to present their ongoing research to a wide variety of experts and receive feedback and suggestions from them. Submissions to YRS are invited on all topics of interest to the CODS-COMAD 2019 conference. We welcome various kinds of papers, such as, but not limited to: novel research papers, work-in-progress papers, appraisal papers of existing methods and tools (e.g., lessons learned). The first author should be a full-time undergraduate / postgraduate/PhD student, or a Postdoctoral researcher having completed his / her PhD not earlier than 2016, affiliated with an academic institution. Authors of accepted papers will be given a chance to highlight their work in a short oral presentation followed by a poster.
