Call for Papers
Big data and smart computing are emerging research fields that have recently drawn much attention from computer science and information technology as well as from social sciences and other disciplines. The goal of the International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp), initiated by KIISE (Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers), is to provide an international forum for exchanging ideas and information on current studies, challenges, research results, system developments, and practical experiences in these emerging fields. Following the successes of the previous BigComp conferences in Bangkok, Thailand (2014), and Jeju, Korea (2015), the 2016 International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp 2016) will be held in Hong Kong. Notably, world renowned database experts, Kyu-Young Whang, KAIST, Korea and Elisa Bertino, Purdue University, USA, will be the keynote speakers of this year’s conference. Kyu-Young Whang will talk on “DB-IR Integration and Its Application to a Massively-Parallel Search Engine”, and Elisa Bertino on “Security and Privacy for the IoT”
BigComp 2016 invites authors to submit original research papers and work-in-progress reports on any aspects of big data and smart computing. The topics of interest for BigComp2016 include (but are not limited to) the following:
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings to be submitted to IEEE Xplore, and selected papers will be recommended to the following journals for further publication after extension:
- The Journal of Supercomputing (SCI)
- Cluster Computing (SCIE)
- Data & Knowledge Engineering (SCIE)
- Journal of Big Data (a new Springer journal)
