ACM India Joint International Conference on
Data Science & Management of Data

8th ACM IKDD CoDS and 26th COMAD

2-4 January 2021

Important Dates

The ACM India Joint International Conference on Data Science and Management of Data (CoDS-COMAD) 2021 (8th ACM IKDD CoDS and 26th COMAD), will be held in Bangalore, India on January 2-4, 2021.

For over two decades, the International Conference on Management of Data (COMAD), modelled along the lines of ACM SIGMOD, has been the premier international database conference hosted in India by Division II of Computer Society of India. The first COMAD was held in 1989, and it has been held on a nearly annual basis since then (except for a few breaks such as in the years when VLDB and ICDE were held in India). CoDS started in 2014 as a very successful conference with an excellent program and has been growing very strongly since then on the base growing interest in AI/Machine Learning/Data Science. These two conferences came together for the first time in 2018. This year again, we are bringing together the two related communities closer under a common umbrella.
