*** Paper submission deadline approaching: March 31  ***

The International Conference on Machine Learning, Optimization, and Data
Science (LOD) has established itself as a premier interdisciplinary
conference in machine learning, computational optimization, knowledge
discovery and data science. It provides an international forum for
presentation of original multidisciplinary research results, as well as
exchange and dissemination of innovative and practical development
LOD 2019 will be held in Certosa di Pontignano (Siena) – Tuscany, Italy,
from September 10 to 13, 2019.

The conference will consist of four days of conference sessions. We invite
submissions of papers on all topics related to Machine learning,
Optimization, Knowledge Discovery and Data Science including real-world
applications for the Conference Proceedings by Springer – Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS).
LOD uses the formula of 30 minutes presentations for fruitful exchanges
between authors and participants.

Submission deadline: March 31, 2019
Any questions regarding the submission process can be sent to conference
