In recent years, big data and smart computing have drawn much
attention and interest
in many disciplines including computer science, information
technology, and social
sciences. The 2015 International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing
(BigComp 2015) provides an international forum for exchanging ideas
and information
on current issues, challenges, research results, system developments,
and practical
experiences in these emerging fields. BigComp 2015 invites authors to
submit original
research papers and new work-in-progress reports in any aspect of big
data and smart
computing. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings with
