Data Science for Smart and
A Workshop at 2020 IEEE International Conference
on Big Data (IEEE Big Data 2020)
December 10-13, 2020, Atlanta, GA, USA
Call for Papers
Smart and connected communities (SCC) synergistically integrate intelligent technologies with the natural and built environment to improve the social, economic, and environmental well-being of those who live, work, or travel within it. These intelligent technologies, in turn, rely on mathematical simulation, statistical modeling, machine learning, and more generally data science to solve important challenges facing SCCs.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers working at the intersection of mathematics, statistics, machine learning and/or data science and smart and connected communities.
We seek papers on data science methods with applications in SCC areas including (but not limited to):
public safety and crime
opioid and drug addiction
mobility and intelligent transportation
COVID-19 and infectious disease modeling
algorithms for smart sensors
privacy, transparency and fairness concerns for smart and connected communities
Papers will be peer-reviewed and published by IEEE in the conference proceedings.
Oct 1, 2020: Due date for workshop paper submission
Nov 1, 2020: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
Nov 15, 2020: Camera-ready of accepted papers
Dec 10-13, 2020: Conference and Workshops
Submission requirements: Each full length workshop submission can have up to 8 pages in IEEE conference format. We also will be accepting short papers with a maximum of 4 pages.
Detailed instructions for manuscript format and submission can be found at the conference website. Each paper must be presented by one registered author at the workshop. We do not require the presenter be the lead author of the paper. A submission must not be in parallel submission to any other journal, magazine, conference, or workshop with proceedings.
Some funding from NSF is available to support travel to the workshop for authors who will be presenting.
