Welcome Message

Due to local covid pandemic policy change,we have to move the conference date from December 17-19 until the December 20-22.

Since the conferences are still 1.5 months away, we are watching closely the pandemic situation changes, we are still preparing for the physical attendance for those Chinese authors. This is why we require all authors to do so. If there is any hindrance to actual attendance, we will make corresponding adjustments in due course.

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, IEEE DSS-2021 will be held in the form of hybrid event (online & in-person).

In parallel with Petrol as a driving resource in this world, Data is becoming an increasingly decisive resource in modern societies, economies, and governmental organizations. Gradually and steadily, it is being world-wide recognized that data and talents are playing key roles in modern businesses.

As an interdisciplinary area, Data Science draws scientific inquiry from a broad range of subject areas such as statistics, mathematics, computer science, machine learning, optimization, signal processing, information retrieval, databases, cloud computing, computer vision, natural language processing, etc. Data Science is on the essence of deriving valuable insights from data. It is emerging to meet the challenges of processing very large datasets, i.e. Big Data, with the explosion of new data continuously generated from various channels, such as smart devices, web, mobile and social media.

Data Systems are posing many challenges in exploiting parallelism of current and upcoming computer architectures. Data volumes of applications in the fields of sciences and engineering, finance, media, online information resources, etc. are expected to double every two years over the next decade and further. With this continuing data explosion, it is necessary to store and process data efficiently by utilizing enormous computing power. The importance of data intensive systems has been raising and will continue to be the foremost fields of research. This raise brings up many research issues, in forms of capturing and accessing data effectively and fast, processing it while still achieving high performance and high throughput, and storing it efficiently for future use. Innovative programming models, high performance scalable computing platforms, efficient storage systems and expression of data requirements are at immediate need.Extended versions of selected best papers will appear in SCIE-indexed international journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems (IF: 6.492), IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering (IF: 3.894), IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (IF: 3.710), IET Communications (IF: 1.542), International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks(IF:1.640), Building and Environment(IF:6.456), Security and Communication Networks (IF:1.791), and MDPI Electronics (IF: 3.576).

DSS (Data Science and Systems) was created to 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. 2021 is the 7th event following the success in 2015 (DSDIS-2015), 2016 (DSS-2016), 2017 (DSS-2017) ,2018 (DSS-2018), 2019 (DSS-2019) and 2020 (DSS-2020).

DSS-2021 will be hosted in Haikou. Haikou is the capital city of Hainan Province which locates in southernmost part of China with the land area of 2284.49 square kilometers and the sea area of 861.44 square kilometers. Haikou is a tropical island city and comprises Hainan Island(part), Haidian island and Xinbu island. Haikou has a comfortable climate and first-class ecological environment, thus it is a world-renowned resort that attracts many people to visit each year.

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers to DSS-2021. All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI). The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in conjunction with the conference.
