ECDA 2018

Following previous editions in Luxembourg (2013), Bremen (2014), Colchester (2015), and Wroclaw (2017), the European Conference on Data Analysis (ECDA) will take place in Paderborn, Germany, 4th - 6th July, 2018. It will be located in the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum, the world's largest computer museum.

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 (CLADAC), Japanese Classification Society (JCS)). ECDA 2018 includes the 42nd Annual Meeting of the GFKl Data Science Society and the Symposium on Data Science Education of the European Association for Data Science (EuADS).

ECDA 2018 will be hosted by Paderborn University, a modern profile university that has developed into an internationally respected center for top-level research and higher education in the recent decades. The ambition of UPB is to play a leading role as "the university for the information society". With a strong foundation in computer science and its applications, it contributes to the scientific and technical development of the information society, while critically reflecting these developments taking into account our society's history, norms, and values. Obviously, these goals can only be achieved by utilizing the entire spectrum from the "hard" sciences to the arts and humanities, which all need to complement and learn from each other.

With this motto in mind, ECDA 2018 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.
