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)


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 primary motivation of this special session is to provide a venue for leading minds in the interdisciplinary application domain of smart and connected communities for identifying research areas that require immediate attention and convergence between the numerous disciplines involved, and assessing their impact on the broader technical landscape. In this context, the goal of this special session is threefold:
