2021 The 5th International Conference on Compute and Data Analysis

The International Conference on Compute and Data Analysis (ICCDA), is an annual conference held each year. It is an international forum for academia and industries to exchange visions and ideas in the state of the art and practice of compute and data analysis.

The previous editions of ICCDA were held in Florida Polytechnic University, Lakeland, Northern Illinois University (NIU) DeKalb, University of Hawaii Maui College, Kahului, Silicon Valley, USA. ICCDA 2021 conference will be located in Sanya, China during Feb. 2-4, 2021.

We believe the final program will be the result of a highly selective review process designed to include the best work of its kind in every category.You are cordially invited to submit your recent research work to the ICCDA 2021.

COVID-19 Update!!
The health and safety of all participants is our top priority. The organizing committee will focus on current COVID-19 situation and change the conference to virtual one if the environment is not good enough for our participant to share ideas. ​Authors will enjoy online registration fee. All registered full papers will be published as scheduled.
