The Center for Data Science and the Engineering & Architecture Division of ATINER will hold its Annual International Conference on Data Science, 22-25 June 2020, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Technology & Engineering.

As the global societies evolve in the 4th Industrial Revolution, ‘data science’ is emerging as an essential research discipline for academicians and practitioners that transcends the mathematical, statistical, and computational sciences. Data science incorporates the studies of artificial intelligence, big data, data mining, data fusion, data quality management, etc. (‘Industrie 4.0.’), and is a shared belief for success in our global societies, business, and institutional sectors. Many have cited that only 10% of data science research by academia is assimilated by the private and institutional sectors. The 1st inaugural conference on ‘Data Science’ attempts to reduce this gap by organizing networking opportunities for researchers and practitioners by being a global leader in developing conferences, education, publications, and research on contemporary topics essential in sustaining the global economy and the environment. Research papers and presentations are sought in: artificial intelligence, big data, data mining, data fusion, data quality management, and predictive analytics, as applied to all disciplines in the institutional, service, and business sectors. You may participate as stream leader, presenter of one paper, chair of a session or observer.

Fee structure information is available on www.atiner.gr/fees.

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized, including a pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine-tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycenae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, a day trip to Delphi, and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

Please submit an abstract (email only) to: atiner@atiner.gr, using the abstract submission form by the 18 November 2019 to: Dr. Timothy M. Young, Director, Center for Data Science (CDS) & Professor and Graduate Director, The University of Tennessee, USA and Dr. Theodore Trafalis, Director, Engineering & Architecture Division, ATINER, Professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering and Director, Optimization & Intelligent Systems Laboratory, The University of Oklahoma, USA. Please include: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Current Position, Institutional Affiliation, an email address and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Decisions are reached within 4 weeks.

If you want to participate without presenting a paper, i.e. lead a stream, chair a session, review papers to be included in the conference proceedings or books, contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email  to Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER & Honorary Professor, University of Stirling, UK(gregory.papanikos@stir.ac.uk).

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into 6 Divisions, 37 Units and 6 Centers.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to: info@atiner.gr.
