4th International Workshop on Data Life Cycle in Physics (DLC-2020)

June 8-10, 2020, ZOOM video conference

2 nd Call

The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the problems related with research and development of systems to support scientific research throughout the life cycle of experimental data from large scientific facilities. One of the areas of the workshop (but not limited to this) is data management during the life cycle of data in cosmic ray astrophysics. Another topic is modern computational methods for the analysis of scientific data and, in particular, the use of machine learning.

The working language is English.

Submissions should be in English and formatted in Springer LNCS style. We invite two types of submissions: REGULAR PAPERS describe research not published or submitted elsewhere (10-12 pages). SHORT PAPERS may be position papers, description of research prospects, challenges, projects, ongoing works, or applications (5-9 pages). The selected papers will be published online via CEUR-WS.org. Note that CEUR-WS.orgfocuses on the disciplines of computer science, information systems, and information technology.


Due to the deteriorating situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Organizing committee decided to organize the workshop remotely via Zoom platform.
