What is ICDSIM?

ICDSIM is an international forum for the exchange of ideas and information on data science and information management both today and in the future. The ICDSIM2016’s program will cover invited, oral, and poster presentations from scientists working in similar areas to establish platforms for collaborative research projects in this field.

What is the profile of ICDSIM attendees & organizers

ICDSIM 2016 aims to attract hundreds of leading researchers and practitioners academia, industry and government from many countries and regions.

ICDSIM will bring together leaders from industry and academia to exchange and share their experiences, present research results, explore collaborations and to spark new ideas, with the aim of providing a platform for researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals to present their research results and development activities in related fields.

Uniquely among the data science & information management conferences, we have an equal emphasis on both theoretical advances and large real world. Hence, we have separate but equally prestigious research and application tracks for the papers presented at the conference.

As a result, ICDSIM regularly spawns new product features & technologies for companies, and new research problems for our academic colleagues.

What are the sponsorship benefits?

Many of our sponsors & exhibitors are companies like Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu and others who use ICDSIM to meet & hire the leading data scientists of our generation. ICDSIM 2016 will match our Diamond, Platinum, Gold, and Silver sponsors with attendees (students and leading researchers) looking for jobs. These sponsors will be able to send us their job advertisements ahead of time & we will match them up with the CVs of interested attendees & connect the best matches upto 3 days ahead of the conference. During these 3 days you can set up a schedule of interviews at your conference exhibition booth or at other convenient locations of your choice.

Many established and startup companies use the exhibition booth as a venue to advertise & meet new customers. Finally most leading book publishers use our conference to advertise and sell the latest books to the largest gathering of data mining researchers. All of our attendees also visit the Exhibitors' booths since we provide coffee, soda & snacks, wireless internet and working tables in this region.

We rely on corporate sponsorship to help us keep the registration costs affordable for students and international attendees. We are grateful for your support of our research community.

We hope to see you at ICDSIM 2016!
