Data Science, as a highly interdisciplinary field, is playing a more and more critical and central role in the development of cyberspace and various applications. Data science in cyberspace is an integral part of competitive intelligence, a newly emerging field that encompasses a number of activities, such as data mining and data analysis. Data science in cyberspace inspires novel techniques and theories drawn from many areas, such as mathematics, statistics, information theory, computer science, and social science, and involves many specific domains, such as signal processing, probability models, machine learning, statistical learning, data mining, database, data engineering, pattern recognition and learning, visualization, predictive analytics, uncertainty modeling, data warehousing, data compression, computer programming, and high performance computing.

  The IEEE International Conference on Data Science in Cyberspace (IEEE DSC) will bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of data science. IEEE DSC 2018 invites submissions on a wide spectrum of topics, including but not limited to the following areas:

1. Data Science
2. Big Data
3. Data Intensive Applications in Cyberspace
4. Data Intensive Systems
5. Social Networks & Social Media
6. Data Mining, Knowledge Discovery and Machine Learning
7. Information Retrieval and Smart Search
8. Cyberspace Security
9. Network Wisdom
10. Data Security and Privacy


  We also host a set of workshops as follows:

1. Big Data and Business Analytics (BDBA)
2. Big Data Mining for Cyberspace (BDMC)
3. Data Intelligence and Security Analysis (DISA)
4. Data Visualization (DV)
5. Intelligent System Security (ISS)
6. Multi-Source Network Fusion and Analysis (MSNFA)
7. Vulnerability Analysis and Adversarial Learning (VAAL)


  All submissions should be written in English and submitted via our submission system: A paper submitted to IEEE DSC 2018 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the entire period that it is considered for IEEE DSC 2018, and must be substantially different from any previously published work. Submissions are reviewed in a single-blind manner.
  Please note that all submissions must strictly adhere to the IEEE templates as provided below. The templates also act as a guideline regarding formatting. In particular, all submissions must use either the LATEXtemplate or the MS-Word template. Please follow exactly the instructions below to ensure that your submission can ultimately be included in the proceedings.


   Using these templates is strongly advised to all authors submitting a paper for reviewing and mandatory for those uploading the camera-ready version of their papers. Failure to produce correctly formatted camera-ready submissions may result in the paper’s exclusion from the Proceedings.

    Accepted and presented papers of IEEE DSC 2018 will be published in the IEEE DSC 2018 conference proceedings and submitted to both EI Compendex and IEEE Xplore®. Best papers from the conference proceedings will be selected by the board for follow-up fast-tracked journal publication in some well-known SCI-indexed journals, including International Journal of Machine Learning and Cybernetics, IEEE IoT Journal (IoT-J), and Chinese Journal of Electronics (CJE), etc. Follow-up work is required based on each journal’s policy.


  Workshop Proposals: March 14, 2018
  Full paper due: March 27, 2018. extend to April 10, 2018
  Acceptance notification: April 23, 2018. extend to April 30, 2018
  Camera-ready copy: April 30, 2018. extend to May 16, 2018
  Conference Date: June 18-21, 2018


    In addition to technical contributions, IEEE DSC 2018 invites proposals for panels, workshops, tutorials, industry presentations. For workshops, DSC will provide administrative support for workshop room booking, registration.
