The 7th IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Systems

��(IEEE DSS-2021)

Haikou, China

December 17-19, 2021


Dear Colleagues,

The IEEE DSS-2021 Conference will be held at Haikou, China, on December 17-19, 2021. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, IEEE DSS-2021 will be held in the form of hybrid event (online & in-person).��You are cordially invited to submit your contribution until September 15, 2021.





As an interdisciplinary area, Data Science draws scientific inquiry from a broad range of subject areas such as statistics, mathematics, computer science, machine learning, data mining, optimization, information retrieval, databases, cloud computing, social science, network science, computer vision, natural language processing, etc. Data Science is on the essence of deriving valuable insights from data. With the continuing data explosion in many fields, such as sciences and engineering, finance, media, online information resources, it is necessary to develop data intensive systems to process such large volumes of data. This brings up many research issues, in forms of capturing and accessing data effectively and efficiently, processing it while still achieving high performance and high throughput, and storing it efficiently for future use.


The 7th IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Systems (IEEE DSS-2021) is the next event in a series of successful events, i.e., DSDIS-2015, DSS-2016, DSS-2017, DSS-2018, DSS-2019 and DSS-2020. DSS-2021 is sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC). DSS-2021 will provide a prime international forum for researchers, industry practitioners and domain experts to exchange the latest advances in Data Science and Data Systems as well as their synergy. DSS-2021 will be hosted in Haikou, the capital city of Hainan Province. Haikou is a beautiful city with comfortable climate and first-class ecological environment.
