Call for Papers: IEEE Transaction on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC)
seeks original manuscripts for a Special Issue on *Big Data**.*

Big Data consists of datasets that grow so large that they become awkward
to work with using on-hand computer data and computation management tools.
Difficulties include, but are not limited to, capture, storage, search,
sharing, analytics, and visualizing. Working with data sets of increasing
scale allows analysts to "spot business trends, prevent diseases, and
combat crime." Big data size is beyond the ability of commonly used
computer software and hardware tools to capture, manage, and process the
data within a tolerable elapsed time, hence demanding new innovative
solutions. It has attracted a high degree of interdisciplinary interest
internationally. This special issue is focusing on this new strategic
research area to address challenges about big data. Original
andunpublished high-quality research results are solicited to explore
challenging topics that include, but are not limited to:

·        Big Data theoretical models, standards  and theories

·        Innovative computer software and hardware architecture for Big
Data processing

·        Big Data mining, advanced analytics and visualization

·        Large big data stream processing

·        Large-scale incremental, distributed and federated datasets

·        NoSQL data stores and DB scalability

·        Big Data sharing and privacy preserving

·        Big Data placement, scheduling, and optimization

·        MapReduce and new programming models for Big Data processing

·        Cloud Computing, cluster and high performance computing and
storage infrastructure for Big Data

·        Performance characterization, evaluation and optimization

·        Simulation and debugging of Big Data systems and tools

·        Security, privacy, reliability and trust in Big Data

·        Volume, Velocity, Variety and Value of Big Data

·        Multiple source data processing and integration for Big Data

·        Resource scheduling and Service Level Agreement for Big Data

·        Distributed file systems, storage and computation management for
Big Data

·        Large-scale scientific workflow in support of Big Data processing

·        Big data applications such as Medicine, Healthcare, Finance,
Business, Retailing, Transportation and Science.

Submitted articles must not have been previously published or currently
