Important Dates

Paper submissions due (Extended): August 15, 2018
Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2018
Camera ready papers due: October 08, 2018
Early + author registration deadline: October 08, 2018
Conference: December 17-20, 2018

Manuscript guidelines

Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may
not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point
size font on 8.5x11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including
figures, tables, and references. The proceedings will be published by
the IEEE Computer Society and will be made available online through the
IEEE Digital Library, as well as through the ACM Digital Library. 

Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format. All manuscripts will
be reviewed and will be judged on correctness, originality, technical
strength, rigour in analysis, quality of results, quality of
presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees.
Papers conforming to the above guidelines can be submitted through the
BDCAT 2018 paper submission system

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is
not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Further
details on the publication instructions and registration information
will be published on the BDCAT website.

Awards and Special Issues

A selection commission chaired by the BDCAT 2018 TPC chairs will select
and acknowledge the best paper and best student paper to receive an
award during the conference.

Authors of highly rated papers from BDCAT 2018 will be invited to submit
an extended version to a special issue of a prestigious journal in the
area of big data which is currently being defined.
