Call for Papers

We welcome you to participate in The Fourth International Conference on Soft Computing in Data Science (SCDS 2018) which will be held in Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand from 15-16 August 2018. With the advancement in computer technology, data science plays an important role in various disciplines including bio-informatics, medical and health informatics, social sciences, manufacturing, economics, business and finance. SCDS2018 aims to provide a platform for discussions on leading edge methods and also addressing challenges, problems and issues in soft computing in data science and analytics. The role of soft computing in data science is significantly increasing in every field from engineering to life sciences and with advanced computer technology, solutions for complex real problems can be simplified. For the advancement of society in the 21st century, there is a need to transfer knowledge and technology to industrial applications to solve real-world problems. SCDS2018 have invited renowned international and local keynote speakers who are academia or practitioners to share their knowledge and experience in the area of soft computing in data science.
