The advancement of today’s computing technology has driven people to generate a vast amount of data with the size and variety that have never been experienced in the history of computing. The need to process and analyze big data attracts researchers interest to propose solutions. The International Conference on Data and Information Science (ICoDIS) is organized to gather researchers to disseminate their relevant work on data science, computational linguistics, and information science. This inaugural conference is organized by School of Computing, Telkom University, and supported by Indonesia Data Scientist Society (IDSS) and Indonesia Association of Computational Linguistics (INACL).

Keynote Talk : Methods for mining chemical and document databases to support computer-aided drug design and development process
On the other hand, screening of compounds in a virtual library can also be made more efficient if they are first clustered before selecting representatives from each cluster. The talk will present results from a number of clustering techniques for clustering chemical compounds databases and how consensus clustering is used to improve the clustering results.
Finally, instead of relying on manual inspection, the automatic detection of adverse drug effects from medical reports can help regulatory authorities in rapid information screening and extraction to accelerate the generation of medical decision support and safety alerts. In this talk, we will share two extraction methods for such purpose. The first method is based on mining rules augmented with lexical information, i.e. cue words for mining the syntactic dependency paths connecting the drugs and medical conditions entities, and then extracting the corresponding relation. The second method is a case based reasoning model based on automatically learned linguistic patterns from the dependency paths link between the drugs and the medical condition entities to identify the relations. A classification model based on automatically learned and manually curated linguistic patterns to detect sentences holding drug-adverse effect information without relying on a named entity recognition module to identify the entities in the input sentences will also be described.
Professor Salim has been involved in 53 research projects out of which she heads 21 of the projects. She has authored over 170 journal articles. 160 of her articles are indexed under Scopus and 84 are indexed under Web of Science. Her Google Scholar h-Index is 21, and she has 1931 citations to date. Her Scopus H-index is 14 with 733 Scopus-indexed citations.
Among the research and innovation awards received by Professor Salim are the PECIPTA 2011 Gold Medal award for her UTMCLP cross-language semantic plagiarism detection system, the I-inova 2010 Gold Medal award for her Islamic Ontology-based Quran search engine, BioInnovation 2011 Bronze Award for UTMChem Workbench Molecular Database System, iPhex Gold Medal Award for innovation in teaching and learning, UTM 2011 Best Research Award, UTM 2014 Best Research Award and the INATEX Distinction Award (1998). She has also won the UTM Citra Karisma Indexed Journal Paper Award for 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
She is a fellow of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), the head of Soft Computing Research Group UTM, Associate Member of UTM Big Data Centre and a UTM Senate Member.
