EnGeoData: Geospatial data analysis under the umbrella of One Health

Special session at 10th IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA 2023).

October 9 - 13, 2023

is an IEEE Special Session at

Current context of urbanization, globalization, high mobility/trade, and climate change amid the health domain favors the (re-) emergence of known and unknown diseases. Thus, geospatial and environmental data analysis for One Health is crucial to provide insights into the connections between humans, animals, and environment. This type of analysis allows us to identify and monitor health issues that arise due to the interactions between these three areas. However, it is challenging due to: (1) the multi-modality of the data (e.g., unstructured, imaging, semantic, spatial, temporal, among others); and (2) the difficulty in choosing the "most appropriate” knowledge discovery process according to specific field needs (e.g., animal, plant or human health; crisis and disaster surveillance). EnGeoData'2023 aims to provide high quality research facing the challenges mentioned above with theoretical and/or experimental approaches.

Proceedings, Indexing:

All accepted full-length papers will be published by IEEE and will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Formatting, Length, Policy:

The paper length allowed for the paper is a maximum of ten (10) pages. The format of papers is the standard 2-column U.S. letter style IEEE Conference template. See the IEEE Proceedings Author Guidelines: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html for further information and instructions.
