Call for Papers:
Recent trends have shown a drastic increase in large data repositories by corporations, governments, and healthcare organizations. These data are collected from various sources, such as crowdsourcing, with or without consent from data donors. These data create opportunities for developing knowledge and information-based decision making systems by utilizing data mining. However, there is a significant risk of compromising sensitive information. This risk of information leakage by using data mining tools has become an obstacle to the advancement of the data science. This special track solicits papers that discuss various aspects of data privacy from either theoretical or practical perspectives. Research papers providing real-life privacy solutions, various applications of machine learning, data mining and deep learning are particularly encouraged.
The IEA/AIE has been a unique platform for computer science research, presenting the latest developments and bringing together researchers and practitioners. The 31st annual conference is seeking previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of the track/conference scopes. Papers may present advances in the theory, implementation, analysis, or empirical evaluations of software and/or hardware systems. Topics of interest in data science and machine learning include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Privacy Preserving Data Publishing (PPDP)
  • Privacy, Security and Data Usability
  • Anonymity of Data
  • Differential Privacy
  • Privacy and Genome Data
