Data Science and Advanced Analytics for Smart & Connected Communities

A Special Session of the 8th IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA 2021)

Porto, Portugual (Virtual)

October 6-9th, 2021

Communities around the world are rapidly changing and constantly evolving, with ever new technologies offering great promise for improved health and well-being, safety and security, accessibility and inclusivity, and economic growth. At the same time, the challenges lying at the complex intersection of technology and society have led to a steady increase of interest in highly interdisciplinary approaches that can both benefit from and help advance data science. This special session will bring together researchers, industry experts, practitioners, and potential citizen scientists who are interested in cultivating specialized and important aspects of data science and analytics in the context of smart and connected communities. The goal is to share recent advances, real-life use cases, and challenges and opportunities in this socially-important application domain.

We welcome submissions which demonstrate a strong interplay between data science and advanced analytics techniques and smart and connected communities applications, with emphasis to the following five broad themes:

  • Environmental systems
  • Health, well-being and pandemics
  • Safety and crime prevention
  • Social and human services
  • Transportation


There will be a special session on "Data Science and Advanced Analytics for Smart & Connected Communities" @ IEEE-DSAA2021.
