BigData Congress 2018 Call for Papers

The IEEE 2018 7th International Congress on Big Data (BigData Congress 2018)

BigData Congress 2018 organizing committee invites you to participate in the 7th edition of BigData Congress, to be held on July 2 – 7, 2018, San Francisco, USA.

The technical program of BigData Congress 2018 will consist of a set of regular tracks and a new set of special tracks. The regular tracks are: regular research track, regular applications track, and short paper track. These tracks are similar to previous BigData Congress submission tracks. The regular research track will emphasize both theoretical and experimental research contributions. The regular applications track will pay special attention to insights derived from real world big data applications, particularly with respect to experience reports and evaluation results. The short paper track will consider concise papers for timely dissemination of new ideas and exploratory results.

We also define the technical scope of big data research broadly from the 5V perspective. In addition to the traditional definition of big volume and high velocity, we also encourage submissions that describe techniques and tools for handling big variety and high veracity. Of special interest are submissions that start from big data containing big noise, and achieve significantly improved value of output data.

Technical topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

Big Data Models and Algorithms

  • Foundational Models for Big Data
  • Algorithms and Programming Techniques for Big Data Processing
  • Big Data Analytics and Metrics

Big Data Architectures

  • Cloud Computing Techniques for Big Data

Review Policy

BigData Congress 2018’s policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge. Content of abstracts submitted to conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice.

Organizers of BigData Congress 2018 are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author, in offering a paper for presentation at BigData Congress conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper.
