Call for Papers
The next European Conference on Data Analysis (ECDA) will take
place in Paderborn, Germany, 4-6 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
Museums Forum (, 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:

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

The Conference of Data Science, Statistics & Visualisation (DSSV 2018)

The conference of Data Science, Statistics & Visualisation (DSSV
2018) will take place on 9-11 July 2018 in TU Wien, Austria. This
meeting shall create a forum to discuss recent progress and
emerging ideas in these different disciplines and encourage informal
contacts and discussions among all the participants. The conference
welcomes contributions to practical aspects of data science, statistics
and visualisation, and in particular those which are linking and
integrating these subject areas. Presentations should thus be
oriented towards a very wide scientific audience, and can cover topics such as machine learning
and statistical learning, the visualisation and verbalization of data, big data infrastructures and
analytics, interactive learning, advanced computing, and other important themes.
A high-level scientific program can be expected: After finishing now the abstract reviewing
phase, there will be 60 oral, 20 short oral and 30 poster presentations to different topics in Data
Science, Statistics and Visualisation. In addition, 3 Invited Sessions from the International
Society for Business and Industrial Statisticsi (ISBIS), the Bernoulli Society, and the European
Association for Data Science (EuADS) will contribute to an exciting program. And of course, the
Invited Speakers Zeynep Akata, Mia Hubert, Eric Postma, Ryan Tibshirani, Sara van de Geer,
and the Keynotes Helwig Hauser and Xuming He will further ensure a high-quality scientific
