Call for Papers: CODS-COMAD 2024

11th ACM IKDD CODS and 29th COMAD

7th Joint International Conference on Data Science & Management of Data

January 4-7, 2024 | IIIT Bangalore | Physical Conference


We are pleased to announce The 7th Joint International Conference on Data Sciences and Management of Data to be held in Bangalore, India, on January 4-7, 2024 as a fully physical conference.

CODS-COMAD is a premier international conference focusing on scientific work in Databases, Data Sciences and their applications. Being held for the 7th time as a common conference bringing together the COMAD and the CODS communities, the conference invites researchers in the field 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 science, data management, data mining, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. 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. Accepted long papers will get an opportunity to showcase their work as oral and poster presentation while short papers will get a poster slot in the conference program. 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. Accepted papers will be given the opportunity to present their work in the conference. 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 the academia and the industry where a live or pre-recorded demonstration of the proposed software system, prototype, conceptual design or library adds significant value to the dissemination potential of the work. The demo should be the result of original innovative work including solving novel technical or research problems and/or creating novel UI/UX. For more details, visit:


The Young Researchers' Symposium 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. The YRS forum this year also includes a PhD clinic session (see below) where young researchers will be paired with senior mentors to enable personalised mentoring. For more details, visit:

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION TRACK - Data Science for Inclusivity

Diversity and Inclusion track invites extended abstract for a participatory workshop where the intent is to increase awareness about the role of data science to ensure a better future. As data-driven decision making influences almost all spheres of our lives, it is imperative to focus on relevant data science problems and methods that address diversity and inclusion issues. For more details, visit:


The conference invites individuals or industry/academic groups to send their proposals for the CODS-COMAD 2024 Data Challenge. This challenge aims to be a premier annual Data Sciences & Data Mining competition held as part of the annual CODS-COMAD conference. The Data Challenge is anticipated to last for three months. The winners will be announced before the CODS-COMAD 2024 conference and they will receive their awards at the conference award ceremony. For more details, visit:
