January 15-17, 2014

Bangkok, Thailand

Call for Papers

Goals: Big data and smart computing are emerging research fields that recently draw much attention and interest in computer science and information technology as well as in social sciences and other disciplines. The goal of the International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp 2014), organized by KIISE (Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers) and technically co-sponsored by IEEE Computer Society, is to provide an international forum for exchanging ideas and information on current issues, challenges, research results, system developments, and practical experiences in these emerging fields. We strongly solicit high-quality 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 an assigned ISBN number and submitted to IEEE Xplore, SCOPUS, and EI Compendex.
