June 22, 2022


10th ACM IKDD CODS and 28th COMAD

6th Joint International Conference on Data Science & Management of Data

January 4–7, 2023

IIT Bombay


We are pleased to announce The 6th Joint International Conference on Data Sciences and Management of Data to be held in Mumbai, India, on January 4–7, 2023 as a hybrid event. The conference will be flexible with respect to in-person vs. online presentation of papers, though we encourage in-person presence to facilitate deeper interactions.

CODS-COMAD is a premier international conference focusing on scientific work in databases, data sciences and their applications. Being held for the 6th time as a common conference bringing together the COMAD and the CODS communities, the conference invites researchers in the fields of databases, data sciences and their applications to submit their original work.



The Research track invites full as well as short papers describing innovative and original research contributions in the areas of data management, data science, machine learning and AI. Papers can range from theoretical contributions to systems and algorithms to experimental research and benchmarking. The goal of the short papers is to provide a venue for innovative ideas such as engineered solutions, exciting work-in-progress, or even negative results that would be interesting to the broader community. Authors of accepted papers will get an opportunity to showcase their work as an oral presentation. For more details visit:


The Applied Data Sciences (ADS) track invites both full as well as short papers describing the design, implementation, and results of solutions and systems for application of data science techniques to real-world problems. Technical approaches can include data science, data mining, applied machine learning, testing and governance of data science models and solutions, and practical MLOps approaches. Authors of accepted papers will be given the opportunity to present their work as an oral presentation. For more details, visit:


Tutorials at CODS-COMAD offer a platform to showcase state-of-the-art tools and technologies to support research, development, and applications of data systems, data science, data management and platforms, data-driven applications, ethics of data science, etc. We solicit tutorial proposals on all topics of interest to the CODS-COMAD conference. For more details, visit:


The Demonstration (demo) track invites submissions from academia and industry where a live or pre-recorded demonstration of the software system, prototype, conceptual design, or library adds significant value to the work. Submissions should not exceed four pages. References are not limited. Topics of interest include data systems, data science, data management and platforms, data-driven applications etc. The scope for demos is broad and includes all topics of interest to the CODS-COMAD conference. The demo should be the result of innovative work including solving novel technical or research problems and/or creating novel UI/UX. Authors of accepted demo track papers will have the option to do either a recorded demo or a live demo at the conference site. For more details, visit:


The Young Researchers’ Symposium at CODS-COMAD 2023 invites submissions from students and postdoctoral fellows. This is a unique opportunity for young researchers to have fruitful peer-to-peer discussions and to get feedback from leading senior researchers about their current research work. Submissions to the Young Researchers' Symposium (YRS) are in the form of a two-page extended abstract, and are invited on the topics such as data systems, data science, data management and platforms, data-driven applications etc. We welcome many kinds of papers, such as, but not limited to: novel research papers, work-in-progress papers, appraisal papers of existing methods and tools (e.g., lessons learned). The first author of any submission should be an undergraduate/postgraduate/PhD student or a postdoctoral researcher affiliated with any academic institution. Authors of accepted papers will get a chance to present their work both as a poster and with a short talk at the conference. For more details, visit:
