Call for Papers

DeLTA is sponsored by INSTICC – Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication


Deep Learning and Big Data Analytics are two major topics of data science, nowadays. Big Data has become important in practice, as many organizations have been collecting massive amounts of data that can contain useful information for business analysis and decisions, impacting existing and future technology. A key benefit of Deep Learning is the ability to process these data and extract high-level complex abstractions as data representations, making it a valuable tool for Big Data Analytics where raw data is largely unlabeled.

Machine-learning and artificial intelligence are pervasive in most real-world applications scenarios such as computer vision, information retrieval and summarization from structured and unstructured multimodal data sources, natural language understanding and translation, and many other application domains. Deep learning approaches, leveraging on big data, are outperforming state-of-the-art more “classical” supervised and unsupervised approaches, directly learning relevant features and data representations without requiring explicit domain knowledge or human feature engineering. These approaches are currently highly important in IoT applications.


Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the following main topic areas:



  • Recurrent Neural Network (RNN)

Authors should submit a paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, addressing one or several of the conference areas or topics. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. To facilitate the double-blind paper evaluation method, authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors, including the authors’ personal details, the acknowledgments section of the paper and any other reference that may disclose the authors’ identity.

Only original papers should be submitted. Authors are advised to read INSTICC's ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism thoroughly before submitting and must make sure that their submissions do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with proceedings. Papers that contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews.

Authors can submit their work in the form of a Regular Paper, representing completed and validated research, or as a Position Paper, portraying a short report of work in progress or an arguable opinion about an issue discussing ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific research focused on one of the conference topic areas. All papers must be submitted through the online submission platform PRIMORIS and should follow the instructions and templates that can be found under Guidelines and Templates. After the paper submission has been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail.


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on digital support.
SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/) and every paper on our digital library is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library (consult SCITEPRESS Ethics of Publication)
It is planned to publish a short list of revised and extended versions of presented papers with Springer in a CCIS Series book
The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Semantic Scholar, Microsoft Academic, Engineering Index (EI) and Conference Proceedings Citation Index.
