With its motto „Multidisciplinary Facets of Data Science“, ECDA 2019 specifically emphasizes the important interplay of disciplines involved in data science, most notably statistics and computer science as well as various application areas like, e.g., Biostatistics, Finance, Marketing, Medicine and Health Care, Social Sciences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

Theory and Methods:
Big Data; Clustering, Classification, Discrimination and Regression; Data Science; Databases and Data Management; Data Mining, Text and Web Mining; Data Visualization; Dimension Reduction; Image Analysis and Computer Vision; Impact of Technical Revolution and Library Science; Knowledge Representation and Discovery; Machine Learning; Mathematical Foundations of Data Science; Multivariate Methods; Online Algorithms and Algorithms for Data Streams; Social Network Analysis; Statistical and Econometric Methods; Symbolic Data Analysis.

Archeology; Biostatistics; Business and Management; Economics; Education; Engineering; Finance; Geosciences; Industrial Automation; Linguistics; Marketing; Medicine and Health Care; Musicology; Psychology; Risk Management; Social Sciences.

Besides, ECDA will feature several special sessions on interesting research themes within the scope of the conference.

Following previous editions in Luxembourg (2013), Bremen (2014), Colchester (2015)Wroclaw (2017) and Paderborn (2018) the European Conference on Data Analysis (ECDA) will take place in Bayreuth, Germany, March 18-20, 2019. It will be located and hosted by the University of Bayreuth.

ECDA was launched in 2013 and emerged from the annual conference of the German Classification Society (GfKl). It is supported by the European Association for Data Science (EuADS), the International Association for Statistical Computing (IASC), the German Computer Science Society (GI), as well as other European classification societies (British Classification Society (BCS), Section on Classification and Data Analysis of the Polish Statistical Association (SKAD), Classification and Data Analysis Group of the Italian Statistical Society (CLADAG), Japanese Classification Society (JCS)).

ECDA 2019 includes the 43nd Annual Meeting of the GFKl Data Science Society and will be hosted by the University of Bayreuth, an university in scenic northern Bavaria capable of attracting gifted students and first class researchers. The strength of the subject areas taught by its faculties and the strategically chosen interdisciplinary research priorities are only few of the factors leading to the universities outstanding reputation and attractiveness for gifted students and first class researchers. Also, an important part of the universities vision is the facilitation of dialogue between science and society by cooperating with other universities, colleges and non-universitary research institutes in all kinds of fields of research.

With this in mind, ECDA 2019 will pay special emphasis on interdisciplinary research and the interaction of theory and practice. The scientific programme of the conference will include sessions with invited talks and contributed presentations covering a broad range of topics.
