Data Science Track

With the explosion of data generated and collected in recent years, the need to utilize and make sense of it has become paramount. Data Science has emerged as a ‘new’ discipline, combining traditional data fields such as analytics, modeling and statistics, with newer areas such as machine learning, visual and in-situ analytics, knowledge interfaces and multi-scale data integration.

The aim of this technical track is to look beyond the hype of the ‘sexiest job of the 21st century’ at the methodologies, techniques and tools developed/used to solve real-life problems using data, and share learnings and ideas across the community.

The track will accept submissions into three data science sub-tracks:

  • Existing Methodologies, Tools & Techniques
  • Emerging Research, Methodologies, Tools & Techniques
  • Applications, Use Cases & Lessons Learned

The track is intended to cover the full spectrum of data science topics, including but not limited to:

  • Data management and scalability
  • Data integration and fusion
  • Data mining
  • Data analysis (e.g. statistical, in situ, real-time)
  • Cloud and distributed data analysis
  • Data user interfaces and visualization

Human Computer Interaction Track

The ubiquity of computing in the 21st century has led human-computer interaction (HCI) research to extend beyond its origins in disciplines including computer science, cognitive science, behavioral science and design to include new platforms, interfaces, and interaction paradigms. Accompanying the rapid evolution of computers are new and interesting research challenges that exist at the interface between humans, computers, and their devices. We are accepting submissions that discuss the latest trends and research, pioneering tools and procedures, practical experiences and technical challenges, including, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Visualization & Unique Display Sizes
  • Design Paradigms, Methods & Evaluation (e.g., Interaction design, Information Architecture)
  • Learning Sciences
  • Accessibility & Needs of Unique User Types (e.g., Children, Disabled persons, Elderly)
  • Social & Online Communities
  • Healthcare (e.g., Health Informatics and Behavior Manipulation)
  • Gesture & Touch interfaces
