Transaction processing, query processing, indexing and storage, distributed data platforms, key-value stores, big data systems, data cleansing, data analytics, data integration, benchmarking, tuning and testing.
Classification and regression, parallel and distributed learning, semi- and unsupervised learning, matrix and tensor methods, graph mining, reinforcement learning, feature engineering, deep learning, Bayesian methods, time series analysis, optimization, graphical models, text analytics and NLP, information retrieval, knowledge representation, planning and reasoning.
Social network analysis, recommender systems, online advertising, bioinformatics, computational neuroscience, systems biology, multimedia processing, crowdsourcing, education, agriculture, healthcare, robotics and autonomous systems,analytics on sensor networks and IoT, computer vision, surveillance/monitoring and anomaly detection in networked systems, urban computing, and technology for emerging markets. .
Submission date 15th Aug, 2018
Notification date 15th Oct, 2018
Camera ready: 1st Nov, 2018
The industry track of the conference 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 education, transportation, infrastructure monitoring, energy, real-estate, manufacturing, finance, retail, healthcare, e-commerce, telecommunications, social media, law, public safety, and computational advertising.
The demo track provides a forum to researchers, developers, and technologists to present first-hand
experience of software systems, prototypes, conceptual designs, libraries, etc., in an interactive
setting. The prospective submissions would have a novel solution to a problem exhibited either
through prototypes or operational systems. Demos are invited for all domains of innovations: Data,
Algorithms, and Applications. The submissions would include a short paper (maximum 4 pages,
unlimited references ) as well as a link to the demo that would be showcased at the event.
Young Researchers' Symposium (YRS) at CODS-COMAD 2019 invites submissions from students and
postdoctoral fellows. This is a unique opportunity for young researchers to have fruitful peer-to-peer
discussions and to get feedback from leading senior researchers about their current research work.
Submissions to YRS (three pages in ACM sigconf format) are invited on all topics of interest to the
CODS-COMAD 2019 conference. 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 any academic institution. 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).
Submissions will be evaluated based on clarity of the research proposal, significance of the research
work, and relevance to the data science community. Authors of accepted papers will get chance to
present their work both as a poster and a short oral presentation at the symposium.
Accepted papers will be presented either as an oral talk or as a poster at the conference. The proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Additionally, authors of selected papers will have the choice to opt their paper out of the conference proceedings. This will enable the paper presented at CoDS-COMAD to be re-submitted to a different venue in the future.
The submissions should not exceed 10 pages of content plus unlimited references and should be formatted in the standard ACM style available at ACM Master Article Template. In case of submissions to the industry track, papers should not exceed 6 pages of content plus references and should be formatted in the standard ACM style. The submissions should be made via Easychair.
Dual Submission Policy
CoDS-COMAD does not allow dual submission, violating papers will be rejected immediately without review.
