Award Activity

The general area of Data Science has been ubiquitous in many computer science research projects. On the one hand, we need strong theoretical foundations, particularly in the database area, to accomplish good results. On the other hand, there are many potential application areas, and we would like to explore two that are very demanding nowadays: Recommender Systems, through dataset analytics, and Similarity Search, involving the identification of data clusters that are responsible for decision making.
