Aim and Scope

Data intelligence and data security are two closely related views, with data management serving as the base for both data intelligence and data security. In the era of big data, data management, data intelligence and data security are all very important, and present constant challenges for both academia and industry. Those challenges provide great opportunities for innovative ideas, tools and technologies.

The First International Conference on Data Intelligence and Security (ICDIS-2018) aims to: (1) provide a unique forum where data management, data intelligence, and data security are all involved; (2) provide a forum for researchers, experts, professionals and stakeholders in related fields to disseminate their recent advances and share their views on future perspectives.


The topics of ICDIS-2018 include three aspects. First, contributions on data management are welcome. Second, contributions on data intelligence are welcome, including works on how to learn from data and how to intelligently process data. Third, contributions on data security and privacy are also within the scope of the conference.
