IEEE DSAA 2018 held in Turin a resounding success
The IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (IEEE DSAA) was held successfully held on 1–4 October in Turin, Italy.
The IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (IEEE DSAA), in partnership with the IEEE Task Force on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (TF-DSAA), takes a strong interdisciplinary approach, features by its strong engagement with statistics, mathematics and business, in addition to core areas including analytics, learning, computing and informatics. DSAA is sponsored by IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, and is also technically sponsored by ACM through SIGKDD and by the American Statistical Association, as well as receives support from IEEE Big Data Initiative.
Every year DSAA maintains a high standard of its program, as the only conference with a specific focus on data science and analytics. DSAA 2018 features another strong, interdisciplinary and industry-friendly program to continuously build and enable the community of data science.
