The IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics (DSAA) features its strong interdisciplinary synergy between statistics (sponsored by ASA), computing, and information/intelligence sciences (by IEEE and ACM), and cross-domain interactions between academia and business/industry for data science and analytics. DSAA sets up a high standard for its organizing committees, keynote speeches, submissions to the main and special session tracks, and a competitive rate for paper acceptance.

DSAA'2021 will inherit the DSAA standard and incorporate new features including an Industry Poster session, a Student Poster session, a Data Science School, and a full-day industry day. We expect to see some exciting special sessions spotlighting important emerging topics and traditional/hands-on tutorials. DSAA’20201 will enjoy the annual spotlight of data science in Porto, Portugal.

SODALITE project is participating within the Special Session: EnGeoData: Environmental and Geo-spatial Data Analytics with the presentation of the paper "On the Use of Class Activation Maps in Remote Sensing: the case of Illegal Landfills" written by Rocio Nahime Torres (Politecnico di Milano), Piero  Fraternali (Informazione e Bioingegneria), Andrea Biscontini (Politecnico di Milano).
