by Oana Andrei, May 31, 2018

Call for Presentations and Call for Participation -- DataMod 2018 : From Data to Models and Back -- Toulouse, France, 25-26 June 2018. The submission deadline for presentation reports is Thursday 7 June 2018 and the notifications will be sent out on Monday 11 June 2018.

DataMod 2018 - Call for Presentation Reports and Call for Participation
7th International Symposium "From Data to Models and Back" 

Toulouse, 25-26 June 2018 

Satellite event of STAF 2018 

Submission deadline for presentation reports : Thursday 7 June 2018 
Notification         : Monday 11 June 2018 


In order to encourage participation and discussion, DataMod 2018
solicits submissions of presentation reports.

Presentation reports concern recent or ongoing work on relevant topics
and ideas, for timely discussion and feedback at the workshop. There is
no restriction as for previous/future publication of the contents of a
presentation. Typically, a presentation is based on a paper which
recently appeared (or which is going to appear) in the proceedings of
another recognised conference, or which has not yet been submitted.
The (extended) abstract of presentation submissions should not exceed
4 pages. Presentation reports will receive a lightweight review to
establish their relevance for DataMod.

DataMod 2018 aims at bringing together practitioners and researchers
from academia, industry and research institutions interested in the
combined application of computational modelling methods with
data-driven techniques from the areas of knowledge management, data
mining and machine learning. Modelling methodologies of interest
include automata, agents, Petri nets, process algebras and rewriting
systems. Application domains include social systems, ecology, biology,
medicine, smart cities, governance, education, software engineering,
and any other field that deals with complex systems and large amounts
of data. Reports can present research results in any of the themes of
interest for the symposium as well as application experiences, tools
and promising preliminary ideas. Presentation reports dealing with
synergistic approaches that integrate modelling and knowledge
management/discovery or that exploit knowledge management/discovery
to develop/synthesise system models are especially welcome.


Modelling and analysis methodologies include: 
- Agent-based Methodologies 
- Automata-based Notations 
- Big Data Analytics 
- Cellular Automata 
- Classification 
- Clustering, Segmentation and Profiling 
- Conformance Analysis 
- Constraint Programming 
- Data Mining 
- Differential Equations 
- Empirical Modelling 
- Game Theory 
- Machine Learning 
- Membrane Systems 
- Network Theory and Analysis 
- Ontologies 
- Optimisation Modelling 
- Petri Nets 
- Process Calculi 
- Process Mining 
- Rewriting Systems 
- Spatio-temporal Data Analysis/Mining 
- Statistical Model Checking 
- System Dynamics 
- Text Mining 
- Topological Data Analysis 

Application domains include: 
- Biology 
- Brain Data and Simulation 
- Business Process Management 
- Climate Change 
- Cybersecurity 
- Ecology 
- Education 
- Environmental Risk Assessment and Management 
- Enterprise Architectures 
- Epidemiology 
- Genetics and Genomics 
- Governance 
- HCI and Human Behaviour 
- Open Source Software Development and Communities 
- Pharmacology 
- Resilience Engineering 
- Safety and Security Risk Assessment 
- Social Good 
- Social Software Engineering 
- Social Systems 
- Sustainable Development 
- Threat Modelling and Analysis 
- Urban Ecology and Smart Cities 

Synergistic approaches include: 
(1) use of modelling methods and notations in a knowledge 
management/discovery context 
(2) development and use of common modelling and knowledge 
management/discovery frameworks to explore and understand complex 
systems from the application domains of interest 


The (extended) abstract of presentation submissions should not exceed 
4 pages and can be shorter. Presentation reports will receive a 
lightweight review to establish their relevance to DataMod.

Submissions must be in PDF format and use the LNCS latex style, see
The submission link is:

Presentation reports may be included in the pre-proceedings depending
on prior publication status of the research and authors’ preference.

At least one of the co-authors of accepted presentation submissions 
are expected to present and discuss their work at the symposium. 
Sessions for presentation reports will take place on both days of 
DataMod to enable attendees at other single day workshops to contribute.

A special issue of a relevant international journal with extended
versions of selected papers and presentations is planned.


Submission of presentation reports: Thursday 7 June 2018 
Notification: Monday 11 June 2018
Symposium: Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 June 2018
