The ACM India Joint International Conference on Data Science and Management of Data (CoDS-COMAD) 2019 (6th ACM IKDD CoDS and 24th COMAD), will be held at Kolkata, India on January 3-5 2019.
For over two decades, the International Conference on Management of Data (COMAD), modeled along the lines of ACM SIGMOD, has been the premier international database conference hosted in India by Division II of Computer Society of India. The first COMAD was held in 1989, and it has been held on a nearly annual basis since then (except for a few breaks such as in the years when VLDB and ICDE were held in India). COMAD has always had a significant international participation, with about 30% of the papers being from outside India, including Europe, USA and East/South-East Asia.
Conference on Data Sciences (CoDS) encompasses the areas of data analytics, machine learning and managing big data. IKDD shall work with ACM to ensure co-sponsorship and publication of the proceedings of CoDS in the ACM digital library.
