About DSAA’2020

The IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA) features its strong interdisciplinary synergy between statistics (via ASA), computing and information/intelligence sciences (IEEE and ACM), and cross-domain interactions between academia and business for data science and analytics. DSAA sets up a high standard for its organizing committee, keynote speeches, submissions to main conference and special sessions, and a competitive rate for paper acceptance. DSAA has been widely recognized as a dedicated flagship in data science and analytics such as by the Google Metrics and China Computer Foundation as an influential event in the area.

The 7th IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA’2020) will provide a premier forum that brings together researchers, industry and government practitioners, as well as developers and users in statistics, computing science, and intelligence science for the exchange of the latest theoretical developments in Data Science and Analytics and the best practice for a wide range of applications. The conference invites submission of papers describing innovative research on all aspects of data science and advanced analytics as well as application-oriented papers that make significant, original, and reproducible contributions to improving the practice of data science and analytics in real-world scenarios.

DSAA’2020 is a dual-track conference consisting of a Research Track and an Application Track. DSAA’2020 will also feature a peer-reviewed Student Poster session and an Industry Poster session, whose purpose is to showcase recent and early-stage research developments on topics that are of interest to students and industry/government practitioners in data science and analytics.

Research Track

The Research Track solicits the latest, original and significant contributions related to foundations and theoretical developments of Data Science and Advanced Analytics. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    Data science foundations and theories
    Mathematics and statistics for data science and analytics
    Understanding data characteristics and complexities
    Data quality and misinformation
    Models, algorithms, and methods
    Optimization, inference, and regularization
    Infrastructures, and systems
    Evaluation, explanation, visualization, and presentation
    Ethics, social issues, privacy, trust, and bias
    Survey and review

Applications Track

The Application track solicits original, impactful and actionable application results of Data Science and Advanced Analytics across various disciplines and domains, including business, government, healthcare and medical science, physical sciences, and social sciences. Submissions address a real problem on real-life data, and either demonstrate reproducible or inspiring results to policy-makers, end-users or practitioners or highlight new practical challenges for researchers. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    Domain-driven data science and analytics practice
    Real-world applications and case studies
    Operationalizable infrastructures, platforms and tools
    Deployment, management and decision-making
    System and software demonstrations
    Social and economic impact modeling
    Reflections and lessons for better practice

Student Poster and Industry Poster Sessions

Two new poster tracks will present accepted Student Poster submissions and Industry Poster submissions in their poster sessions. Please find more details about these two poster tracks from their call for papers.

All accepted main conference papers will also be presented as posters in the poster sessions.

DSAA Awards and Travel Grants

DSAA features its Best Research Paper award and Best Application Paper award (with honorarium USD$500 each), Next-generation Data Scientist award (honorarium USD1,000), and IEEE CIS and DSAA travel awards.


DSAA’2020 will take place in the CBD of Sydney, Australia, one of pioneer places of data science and a highly attractive and incredible place for networking, family tour and vocation. Learning more about Sydney and the conference venue in the Attending page of the website.

Paper Formatting, Length, and Double-blind Reviewing

The paper length allowed for the papers in the Research and Application tracks is a maximum of ten (10) pages, whereas the paper length allowed for the Student Poster and Industry Poster papers is a maximum of two (2) pages.

The format for both types of papers is the standard 2-column U.S. letter style IEEE Conference template.  See the IEEE Proceedings Author Guidelines: for further information and instructions.

All submissions will be blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to the conference’s topics of interest, originality, significance, and clarity. Author names and affiliations must not appear in the submissions, and bibliographic references must be adjusted to preserve author anonymity. Submissions failing to comply with paper formatting and authors anonymity will be rejected without reviews.

Because of the double-blind review process, non-anonymous papers that have been issued as technical reports or similar cannot be considered for DSAA’2020. An exception to this rule applies to arXiv papers that were published in arXiv at least a month prior to DSAA’2020 submission deadline. Authors can submit these arXiv papers to DSAA provided that the submitted paper’s title and abstract are different from the one appearing in arXiv. Papers that appear in arXiv from the DSAA’2020 submission deadline until the review process has ended, are not allowed.

Proceedings, Indexing and Special Issues

All accepted full-length papers 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 the International Journal of Data Science and Analytics (JDSA, Springer) and some other journals we are working on.

Submission Website

Submissions to the main conference including Research Track and Applications Track as well as Student Poster and Industry Poster tracks are available from Easy Chair (

Important Policies

Reproducibility & supplementary: The advancement of data science depends heavily on reproducibility. We strongly recommend that the authors release their code and data to the public. Authors can provide an optional two (2) page supplement at the end of their submitted paper (it needs to be in the same PDF file and start on page 11). This supplement can only be used to include (i) information necessary for reproducing the experimental results reported in the paper (e.g., various algorithmic and model parameters and configurations, hyper-parameter search spaces, details related to dataset filtering and train/test splits, software versions, detailed hardware configuration, etc.), and (ii) any data, pseudo-code and proofs that due to space limitations, could not be included in the main manuscript. Papers entering into the Best Application Paper awards must show solid evidence for reproducibility.

Authorship: The list of authors at the time of submission is final and cannot be changed.

Dual submissions: DSAA is an archival publication venue as such submissions that have been previously published, accepted, or are currently under-review at peer-review publication venues (i.e., journals, conferences, workshops with published proceedings, etc.) are not permitted. DSAA has a strict no dual submission policy.

Conflicts of interest (COI): COIs must be declared at the time of submission. COIs include employment at the same institution at the time of submission or in the past three years, collaborations during the past three years, advisor/advisee relationships, plus family and close friends. Program chairs, poster chairs, special session chairs and tutorial chairs are not allowed to submit proposals to their managed tracks and sessions.

Attendance: At least one author of each accepted paper must register in full and attend the conference to present the paper. No-show papers will be removed from the IEEE Xplore proceedings.
