ECDA 2018
European Conference on Data Analysis
Paderborn, Germany, July 4-6, 2018

The next European Conference on Data Analysis (ECDA) will take place in 
Paderborn, Germany, 4th-6th July, 2018. ECDA 2018 includes the 42nd 
Annual Meeting of the GFKl Data Science Society and the Symposium on 
Data Science Education of the European Association for Data Science 
(EuADS). It will be located in the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum 
(www.hnf.de), the world's largest computer museum.

ECDA solicits contributions to theoretical as well as 
application-oriented research on topics in the realm of data science, 
with a specific focus on data analytics. With its motto 
"Multidisciplinary Facets of Data Science", ECDA 2018 specifically 
emphasizes the important interplay of disciplines involved in data 
science, most notably statistics and computer science. Topics of 
interest include, but are not limited to the following:

§  Theory and Methods: Big Data; Clustering, Classification, 
Discrimination and Regression; Data Science; Databases and Data 
Management; Data Mining, Text and Web Mining;  Data Visualization;  
Dimension Reduction;  Image Analysis and Computer Vision; Impact of 
Technical Revolution and Library Science; Knowledge Representation and 
Discovery; Machine Learning; Mathematical Foundations of Data Science; 
Multivariate Methods; Online Algorithms and Algorithms for Data Streams; 
Social Network Analysis; Statistical and Econometric Methods; Symbolic 
Data Analysis.

§  Applications: Archaeology; Biostatistics; Business and Management; 
Economics; Education; Engineering; Finance; Geosciences; Industrial 
Automation; Linguistics; Marketing; Medicine and Health Care; 
Musicology; Psychology; Risk Management; Social Sciences.
