ICDIS 2018

Data intelligence and data security are two closely related views, with data management serving as the base for both data intelligence and data security. In the era of big data, data management, data intelligence and data security are all very important, and present constant challenges for both academia and industry. Those challenges provide great opportunities for innovative ideas, tools and technologies.

The First International Conference on Data Intelligence and Security (ICDIS-2018) aims to: (1) provide a unique forum where data management, data intelligence, and data security are all involved; (2) provide a forum for researchers, experts, professionals and stakeholders in related fields to disseminate their recent advances and share their views on future perspectives.

The first ICDIS will be held on April 8-10, 2018, at South Padre Island (SPI), Texas, USA. South Padre Island (http://www.myspi.org/) is a tropical island located in the Mexico Gulf, an ideal location for a fruitful and relaxing conference.

Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and published in IEEE Xplore.

ICDIS-2018 is co-sponsored by IEEE and The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV).
