Australasian Data Science and Machine Learning (AusDM) Conference has established itself as the premier Australasian meeting for both practitioners and researchers in the areas of data science and machine learning. Since AusDM 2002, the conference series has showcased research in data science and machine learning through presentations and discussions on the state-of-art research and development. In addition, it has made great strides in pushing forward the frontiers of data science and machine learning in academia, government, and industry. Built on this tradition, AusDM 2023 continuously aims to facilitate the cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas, experiences, and potential research directions.

In this special issue (, we cordially invite the authors of AusDM 2023 accepted papers to extend and submit their papers with the following data science and machine learning topics, but not limited to:

    • Big Data Analytics
    • Biomedical and Health Data Mining
    • Computational Aspects of Data Mining
    • Data Integration, Matching and Linkage
    • Data Mining in Security and Surveillance
    • Data Preparation, Cleaning and Pre-processing
    • Data Stream Mining
    • Deep Learning
    • Machine Learning Safety
    • Evaluation of Results and their Communication

It is notable that the submitted journal manuscripts need to have at least 30% extension of the conference papers and they will go through a rigorous journal review process.
