Data driven scientific discovery is an important emerging paradigm for computing in areas 
including social computing, services, Internet of Things, sensor networks, telecommunications, 
biology, health-care, and cloud. Under this paradigm, Data Science is the core that drives new 
researches in many areas, from environmental to social. There are many associated scientific 
challenges, ranging from data capture, creation, storage, search, sharing, modeling, analysis, 
and visualization. Among the complex aspects to be addressed we mention here the integration 
across heterogeneous, interdependent complex data resources for real-time decision making, 
streaming data, collaboration, and ultimately value co-creation. Data science encompasses the 
areas of data analytics, machine learning, statistics, optimization and managing big data, and 
has become essential to glean understanding from large data sets and convert data into actionable 
intelligence, be it data available to enterprises, Government or on the Web.

Following the previous two successful editions DSAA'2014, DSAA' 2015, the 3rd IEEE International 
Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA' 2016) aims to provide a premier forum 
that brings together researchers, industry practitioners, as well as potential users of big data,
for discussion and exchange of ideas on the latest theoretical developments in Data Science as 
well as on the best practices for a wide range of applications.

DSAA is also technically sponsored by ACM through SIGKDD.

DSAA'2016 will consist of two main tracks: Research and Applications.  The Research Track is aimed 
at collecting original contributions related to foundations of Data Science and Data Analytics. 
The Applications Track is aimed at collecting original papers (not published nor under 
consideration at any other venue) describing substantial contributions related to Data Science and 
Data Analytics in real life scenarios. DSAA solicits then both theoretical and practical works on 
data science and advanced analytics.
