By 2015, the total size of digital data generated by social networks, sensors, biomedical imaging and simulation devices, will reach an estimated 8 Zettabytes (e.g. 8 trillion gigabytes) according to IDC report. We are now in the era of “big data”. This type of “big” data, together with the advances in information and communication technologies such as Internet of things (IoT), connected smart objects, wearable technology, ubiquitous computing, is transforming every aspect of modern life and bringing great challenges and spectacular opportunities to fulfill our dream of a sustainable smart society.
This workshop aims to provide a platform and forum to discuss and report current state- of-the-art, new solutions, future directions to address challenges, issues and success stories on how to harness potential advances in the digital area to improve people’s life (e.g. big data, IoT, mobile/ ubiquitous computing), and how to maximize the use of big data processing and data analytics to realize the smart society.
The topics include but are not limited to:
--Novel architectures for big data processing and data analytics
--Novel data analytics/machine learning algorithms for efficient big data analytics
--Internet of things --Ubiquitous computing/wearable technology --Security and privacy in big data
--Applications in different domains such as health, social science, energy, bioscience, etc.
All papers need to be submitted electronically through easychair via the link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bigdata20150. Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. The length of the papers should not exceed 6 pages + 2 pages for overlength charges (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced, 10-point font), including figures and references (Please refer to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Author Guidelines: URL: http://computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm
