Sustainable Data Analytics

Call for Paper

 Data Science and Data Analytics (DA) has become a core technology and key driver for innovation and development in science, society, and industry. However, current tools for DA often lack appropriate means to support the sustainability of the created data analysis methods and results. A *sustainable data analysis* should not be a one-shot project; instead, its results should be verifiable and repeatable, the method should be reusable by other users, and the analysis should be easily adaptable to (slight) changes in input data or analysis goals. None of these goals is easy to achieve; they require, for instance, portability of DA programs and workflows across computational infrastructures, mature tools for the development, debugging, and monitoring of complex DA methods, powerful methods for provenance management, analysis, and verification, and proper languages for formulating the analysis.


The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia to present new ideas and technologies for implementing sustainable data analytics. Topics include but are not limited to

  • Languages for sustainable data analytics
  • Provenance management and analysis
  • Reproducibility, repeatability, reusability, and replicability of data analysis
  • Cross-platform portability of data analysis pipelines
  • Sustainable data analytics infrastructures
  • Research data management, integrated data and results management
  • User interfaces for enhanced data analytics reuse
  • Code and data repositories emphasizing sustainability aspects
  • Adaptable data analytics methods
  • Sustainability-enhancing methods in text analytics, graph analytics, or image analytics
  • Methods for verification of data analytics results
  • Development-support tools and processes


We call for contributions in English either as short paper (up to 10 pages, LNI Format, suitable, for instance, for vision papers or war stories) or as long paper (up to 20 pages LNI format, suitable for novel technical contributions, surveys or comprehensive experience reports). Also long submission tagged may be accepted as short paper. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least two PC members and can be submitted via Easy Chair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sdainformatik2021). The accepted papers will be published in the GI-Edition: Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI) (https://dl.gi.de/handle/20.500.12116/21 and https://gi.de/service/publikationen/lni).
