Scientific Scope

Applied Statistics and Data Analysis are areas that include a vast number of techniques developed in Computer Science such as numerical analysis, data visualization, machine learning and statistics.

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.

Paper Submission and Format Guidelines

We invite authors to submit unpublished work resulted from research that present original scientific result, methodological aspects, concepts and approaches. Submitted work must not be not under revision elsewhere. The submissions will be double-blind reviewed on a rolling basis to ensure a rapid decision. Therefore, authors should not include on submissions names and affiliations during the reviewing phase and avoid references in the text that can possibly identify authors. Submissions must be of Full Paper (up to 6 pages). Papers must be written in one of the official conference languages (English, Spanish or Portuguese) and must follow the conference format guidelines. Format guidelines: http://cisti.eu/2017/images/templates.zip . Although submissions shall be done using PDF file format, camera ready versions of the accepted papers must be delivered in MS Word format also. Submissions must be done using EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cistiworkshops2018 chosing the appropriate Workshop.

Publication

Regardless of the type of submission, Programme Committee and Organizing Committee may suggest papers to be accepted as full-paper (6 pages), short-paper (4 pages) or poster (2 pages). Workshops full papers will be published in the conference proceedings in specific Workshop chapters. Proceedings will be submitted for indexation by ISI Thomson, SCOPUS, INSPEC and Google Scholar. Detailed and up-to-date information may be found at CISTI 2018 website. Published full and short papers will be sent to EI, IEEE XPlore, INSPEC, ISI, SCOPUS and Google Scholar. Poster papers and company papers will be sent to EBSCO and EI. Authors of accepted papers must register for the workshop to have papers published in the proceedings.
