Deadline: 31 August 2021
The IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA) will offer a limited number (or none) of NGDS Awards every year to early‐career researchers (ECR) who have got PhD degrees within five years in data science. The NGDS Award has been the first and only global initiative to support the production and certification of qualified next‐generation data scientists. The NGDS awards will be sponsored by some of the DSAA sponsors. Each NGDS awardee will receive USD 1,000.
One of the critical challenges facing the era of data science lies in the significant gap between the increasing data scientist job demand and the limited availability of qualified data scientists. The purpose of offering this NGDS award is to encourage young talents to conduct significant foundational research and applied innovation in Data Science toward a profound and world-standard level.
All ECRs with the papers accepted at previous and current DSAA conferences are invited to apply, although the awards open to all applicants in data science.Selection Criteria of NGDS
The DSAA steering committee sets up the NGDS Award to be highly prestigious and selective. Hence, the criteria for NGDS candidate selection are rigorous. This may involve the following aspects:
