The challenge of “Big Data” continues to grow and is an active area of significant research. “Big Data” is usually defined by its primary attributes of volume, velocity, variety and complexity, or some combination of these. The problem domains include scientific disciplines such as astronomy and biology, business disciplines such as marketing and security, law enforcement and even natural language processing as part, for example, of automated real time speech translation. While social media, so pervasive nowadays, is one of the main contributors to vast amounts of Big Data around the world, several other diverse sources such as fixed and mobile sensors, secondary data generated by physical simulations, transactional records from high speed trading systems, and high volume business record analytics also constitute important areas of research. Creating effective applications and solutions that work for real world “Big Data” problems requires both, collaborative technology and multi-disciplinary teams. These applications may leverage Big Data platforms, such as open source LexisNexis HPCC Systems and Hadoop platforms, or may involve novel approaches.
You are cordially invited to participate in, contribute to, and attend the International Symposium on Big Data and Data Analytics in Collaboration (BDDAC 2016) to be held as part of CTS 2016 (http://cts2016.cisedu.info/) June 06-10, 2016 in Orlando, Florida, USA. The Symposium is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art and practice in the broad multidisciplinary field of Big Data. Participation is extended to researchers, designers, educators and interested parties in all disciplines and specialties (computer science, linguistics, psychology, statistics, sociology, multimedia and semantic web technologies, …).
The BDDAC Symposium topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Big Data and Data Analytics in Collaboration and social Nets. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters (please specify). For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://cts2016.cisedu.info/1-call-for-papers/call-for-posters for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2016 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.
Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the symposium EasyChair paper submission site at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bddac2016. Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. If the submission is for a poster paper or short paper, indicate that as well on the manuscript and in the submission form's Notes field.
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the CTS 2016 conference to present the paper at the symposium.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the symposium, please contact the organizers.
International Program Committee*:
All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by the symposium technical program committee members following similar criteria used in CTS 2016 and will be published as part of the CTS 2016 Proceedings.
