ASDACS 2014 - 1st Workshop on Applied Statistics and Data Analysis using Computer Science (ASDACS 2014)

Date2014-06-18 - 2014-06-21


VenueBarcelona, Spain Spain



Topics/Call fo Papers

Applied Statistics and Data Analysis are areas that include a vast number of techniques developed in Computer Science such as numerical analysis, database methodology, computer graphics, software engineering and human-computer interface.
A research, based on a certain theory regarding the topic under investigation, can propose some statements or hypothesis about the reasons of certain behaviour. The next step consists in testing some predictions with suitable experiments where several questions must be answered in order to obtain data. Depending on the outcomes of the experiment, the theory on which the hypotheses and predictions were based will be supported or not. By the nature of this line of scientific investigation the statistical methods assumes a major importance to determining the validity of empirical research. It is also important to quantify findings and present them with appropriate indicators of measurement. Several areas such as Medicine, Therapies, Biochemical Technology, Engineering and Economics relate Statistical Knowledge and Computer Science in order to analyse data obtained in the context of empirical research.
This workshop will provide researchers and practitioners a forum for exchanging ideas, experiences, problems understanding and visions for the future. The workshop will also provide a platform for researchers and developers to present results using the available tools and software packages for data analysis and to identify the problems in the theory and practice of empirical research recognizing future developments.

Submission Instructions
We invite prospective authors to submit their contributions, not yet published, reporting on either work under development or concluded projects about theoretical aspects or practical applications related to the topics of the workshop. Contributions can be submitted in one of two formats:
- Full papers - original, relevant and previously unpublished research results, related to any of the topics of the conference, with a maximum of 6 pages.
- Short papers - project reports, research in progress, with no more than 4 pages.
Papers will be presented and discussed in time slots of 20 (full papers) or 10 minutes (short papers).
Papers can be written in Portuguese, Spanish or English. Submissions should follow the guidelines of the main conference, namely the types of papers (full or short) and formatting rules (
All papers should be submitted using the EasyChair system, available in the following link:
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings (book and CD with ISBN for full papers and CD with ISBN for short papers; detailed information may be found at CISTI 2014 website). A paper is only published in the proceedings if, at least, one of the authors is registered in the workshop.
Published full papers will be sent to EBSCO, EI, IEEE XPlore, INSPEC, ISI and SCOPUS. Published short papers will be sent to EBSCO, EI, IEEE XPlore, INSPEC and SCOPUS.
