Data science is a hot topic with an extensive scope, both in terms of  theory
and applications. Machine Learning forms one of its core foundational pillars.
Simultaneously, Data Science applications provide important challenges that can
often be addressed only with innovative Machine Learning algorithms and
methodologies. This special issue will highlight the latest development of the
Machine Learning foundations of data science and on the synergy of data science
and machine learning. We welcome new developments in statistics, mathematics,
informatics and computing-driven machine learning for data science, including
foundations, algorithms and models, systems, innovative applications and other
research contributions.

Following the great success of the 2021 MLJ special issue with DSAA'2021, this
2022 special issue will further capture the state-of-the-art machine learning
advances for data science. Accepted papers will be published in MLJ and presented
at a journal track of the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Data Science and
Advanced Analytics (DSAA'2022) in Shenzhen, October 2022.
