The International Conference on Machine Learning and Data Analysis 2018 will take place in San Francisco, USA, 23-25 October, 2018.
The conference ICMLDA'18 is held under the World Congress on Engineering and Computer Science WCECS 2018. The WCECS 2018 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), a non-profit international association for the engineers and the computer scientists. The congress has the focus on the frontier topics in the theoretical and applied engineering and computer science subjects. The last IAENG conference has attracted more than five hundred participants from over 30 countries. All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceeding (ISBN: 978-988-14048-1-7). The abstracts will be indexed and available at major academic databases. The accepted papers will also be considered for publication in the special issues of the journal Engineering Letters, in IAENG journals and in edited books by publishers like Springer.

Important Dates:
Draft Paper Submission Deadline (extended): 23 July, 2018 new
Camera-Ready Papers Due & Registration Deadline (extended): 16 August, 2018
