Big Data 2018: The 6th International Workshop on Big Data

Big Data recently has become a ubiquitous term to describe large datasets that are challenging to store, search, share, visualize, analyze, and learn. Effective management and analysis of the Big Data would bring great benefits and unique opportunities to the users. However, there are still many open issues for deep investigation. The Big Data workshop 2018 (BigData 2018) is to promote the research in this emerging area of Big Data-intensive computing, algorithms, networks, systems, and applications. BigData 2018, held in conjunction with CyberC 2018, aims to provide a leading forum for sharing and exchanging experiences, new ideas, and research results on broad topics of Big Data Research, Development, and Applications. It solicits high quality papers that illustrate novel Big Data models, architecture and infrastructure, management, search and processing, security and privacy, applications, surveys and industrial experiences. Authors of Big Data workshop 2018 are free for enjoying CyberC 2018 and Summits.

Authors are invited to submit original technical papers by or login to by selecting “Big Data 2018”. Electronic submission to with title of “Big Data 2018 Submission” is also accepted. Please DO NOT submit both ways.

Manuscript Guidelines:

All submitted manuscripts should be prepared as technical papers and may not exceed 8 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm) wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified text). For more information please see . Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. The submitted manuscripts can be prepared in Word, or Latex using the IEEE templates, but authors should finally 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.

Manuscript submission procedure is available over the Web at . We encourage you to use EDAS online submission by selecting “2018 Cybersecurity”. If you have troubles in using the Web submission, you can also submit your paper to or contact us. Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file.

Submitted manuscripts have to present the 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 and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered.

Paper Acceptance:

Manuscripts should present the current research in the areas identified in the call for papers. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by experts in the fields and will be judged from the aspects of problem significance, contributions, originality, correctness, technical strength, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference attendees. Papers will be accepted with Regular Papers and Short Papers with maximal 8 pages and 4 pages in the final version respectively.


All accepted and presented papers will be published in CyberC 2018 Proceeding by IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services. These papers will be collected in IEEE Xplore and further scheduled to EI, Dblp, Google Scholars, SCOPUS, and other IEEE abstract and index partners (e.g., INSPEC, Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science). You can find our all publications recorded in the past 9 years.
