Call for papersReconciling Data Analytics, Automation, Privacy, and Security: A Big Data Challenge (RDAAPS) 2020 conference
July 15 – 17, 2020, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, CANADA
RDAAPS is the first annual international conference on research in the broadly defined area of data analytics. It brings together researchers from academia, industry, and the public sector to present and discuss various aspects of data analytics, including privacy, security, and automation. This venue is meant to bring together stakeholders whose interests lie at the interface of these concerns, providing a platform for integrating the needs of industry with state-of-the-art scientific advancements, and inspiring original research on solving enterprise data challenges. RDAAPS seeks papers presenting original research in the areas including, but not limited to:
Big Data Analytics for Decision Making– New models and algorithms for data analytics- Scalable data analytics- Optimization methods in data analytics- Theoretical analysis of data systems- Analytical reasoning systems- Decision making under uncertainty- Learning systems for data analytics- Large-scale text, speech, image, or graph processing systems
Accountable Data Analytics– Privacy-aware data analytics- Fairness in data analytics- Interpretable and transparent data analytics- Data analytics incorporating legal and ethical factors
Strings in Data Analytics– Patterns in Big Data- Data compression- Bioinformatics- Algorithms and data structures for string processing- Useful data structures for Big Data- Data structures residing on secondary storage
Security in Data Analysis– Traceability of decision making- Models for forecasting cyber-attacks and measuring impact- Data usage in mounting security threats- Data analytics for better situational awareness
Domain knowledge modelling and generation– Novel ontology representations- Scalability of domain-based reasoning on big data- Modelling and analyzing unstructured data sets
Automation for data analytics, security, and privacy in manufacturing– Application of data analysis in manufacturing- Big data in Industry 4.0- Privacy and security in manufacturing
Challenges of automation of data analytic processes– Case studies of the automation of data analytics processes- Architecture for data analytics and security- Built-in privacy and security in data analytics automation
