Manuscripts shall be formatted in IEEE conference style and may not exceed ten pages. In detail, authors are invited to submit papers electronically. Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed 10 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE templates - https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html. Papers should be prepared in two-column single-spaced format. Authors should submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is English. All manuscripts will be reviewed and will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, 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 (URL to be provided in March 2018).

Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact the conference TPC Chairs for more information.

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.
