The Community for Data Science and Its Applications (CommDIS) was established to gather researchers whose interest lies in developing data science theory and applications, as well as other related fields. The advancement of today’s computing technology has driven people to generate a vast amount of data with the size and variety that have never been experienced in the history of computing. The need to process and analyze big data attracts researchers interest to propose solutions. Together with Telkom University, CommDIS publishes the Journal of Data Science and Its Applications (JDSA) to disseminate extended papers about novel findings and solutions on research problems in data science, including significant applications of data science theory and practice on related fields. We also annually organize The International Conference on Data and Information Science (ICoDIS) to gather researchers to disseminate their relevant work on data science, computational linguistics, and information science. The conference is also supported by Telkom University and Indonesia Data Scientist Society (IDSS).
