5th ASDACS - Applied Statistics and Data Analysis using Computer Science


Applied Statistics and Data Analysis are areas that include a vast number of techniques developed in Computer Science such as numerical analysis, data visualization, machine learning and statistics.

A research, based on a certain theory regarding the topic under investigation, can propose some statements or hypothesis about the reasons of certain behaviour. The next step consists in testing some predictions with suitable experiments where several questions must be answered in order to obtain data. Depending on the outcomes of the experiment, the theory on which the hypotheses and predictions were based will be supported or not. By the nature of this line of scientific investigation the statistical methods assumes a major importance to determining the validity of empirical research. It is also important to quantify findings and present them with appropriate indicators of measurement. Several areas such as Medicine, Therapies, Biochemical Technology, Engineering and Economics relate Statistical Knowledge and Computer Science in order to analyse data obtained in the context of empirical research.

This workshop will provide researchers and practitioners a forum for exchanging ideas, experiences, problems understanding and visions for the future. The workshop will also provide a platform for researchers and developers to present results using the available tools and software packages for data analysis and to identify the problems in the theory and practice of empirical research recognizing future developments.
