Data driven scientific discovery approach has already been agreed to be an important emerging paradigm for computing in areas including social, service, Internet of Things (or sensor networks), and cloud. Under this paradigm, Big Data is the core that drives new researches in many areas, from environmental to social. There are many new scientific challenges when facing this big data phenomenon, ranging from capture, creation, storage, search, sharing, analysis, and visualization. The complication here is not just the storage, I/O, query, and performance, but also the integration across heterogeneous, interdependent complex data resources for real-time decision-making, collaboration, and ultimately value co-creation. Data sciences encompass the larger areas of data analytics, machine learning and managing big data. Data analytics has become essential to glean some understanding from large data sets and convert data into actionable intelligence. With the rapid growth in the volumes of data available to enterprises, Government and on the web, automated techniques for analyzing the data have become essential.


The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA'2014) aims to provide a premier forum that brings together researchers, industry practitioners, as well as potential users of big data and advanced analytics, to promote collaborations and exchange of ideas and practices, discuss new opportunities, and investigate the best actionable analytics framework for wide range of applications. The conference solicits experimental and theoretical works on data science and advanced analytics along with their application to real life situations.
