DACOMSIN workshop is devoted to data and computation for materials science and innovation. It brings together professionals who use information technology and computer science for the advance of materials data management, analysis and simulation. The main purpose of the workshop is to promote productive communication across all professional communities that use data and computation in materials domain.

The workshop main topics are:

  • Databases and data repositories on experimental and simulated properties of substances and materials
  • National and international data infrastructures and data services in support of materials science
  • IT applications and IT platforms for materials design and simulation: quantum-mechanical, thermodynamical and other computation
  • Software tools for materials data management, data analysis and data visualization
  • High-performance computing as an infrastructure for materials advanced characterization and modelling
  • Text and data mining, knowledge discovery and machine learning in materials research
  • Data formats, metadata and ontologies in support of materials research, innovation and manufacturing
  • Extended articles, research objects, executable workflows and other novel means of knowledge representation and professional communication in materials research community (beyond plain publications and data repositories)

The workshop welcomes contributions focussed on other topics, too, as long as they clearly relate to the needs of materials research and innovation community and as long as they are underpinned by novel applications of information technology or computer science.

Research and technology contributions from industry and small business are welcome, along with those from research organizations and academia that are expected to be the workshop mainstream.

DACOMSIN workshop is hosted by DAMDID (Data Analytics and Managagement in Data Intensive Domains) conference and comes first chronologically, as the first day of the conference.

Forms of contribution

Workshop contributions may come in the form of:

  • conference papers,
  • posters,
  • demonstrations.

All contributions may have a research angle, an implementation angle, or be state-of-the-art surveys.

All contributions will be peer-reviewed by the Programme Committee.

Accepted papers will be published electronically in the same volume of proceedings as papers from the host DAMDID conference, with ISBN or ISSN assigned. Soon after the conference, selected papers presented in the workshop will be submitted for online publishing in the DAMDID 2019 volume of the CEUR Workshop Proceedings (, for the sake of better visibility and for indexing by DBLP ( and Scopus. The volume content will be evaluated and decided upon by CEUR.

Papers are required to be between 6 and 12 pages long. In CEUR volume, the 6-9 pages papers will be marked as short, and papers with at least 10 pages will be considered full papers.

Abstracts of posters and demonstrations are required to be between one and four pages long if your prime intention is to only present your work in the workshop. If you want your abstract considered for publishing in CEUR volume, too, please make sure it is at least five pages long.

All contributions are required to be in English and follow Springer guidelines for Computer Science proceedings. Detailed requirements are published in the Guidelines for contributors section.


The DACOMSIN workshop is hosted by National University of Science and Technology MISiS in Moscow (formerly known as the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys). MISiS has rich history of international cooperation and hosts the Russian National Contact Point for European research programmes.

The main DAMDID conference is hosted by Kazan Federal University, which is one of the oldest universities in Russia and is involved in multiple research programmes nationally and internationally.

Both Moscow and Kazan are great cities that have made significant investments in their infrastructure and public spaces, with certain attention to the needs of business visitors and tourists.

Moscow is a natural transportation hub for those who are willing to proceed from the DACOMSIN workshop (that will come first chronologically) to the main DAMDID conference in Kazan. The DACOMSIN Organizing Committee provides travel advice and visa support for the workshop participants.
