Call for Paper Big Data
Big Data Workshop 2013
The 1st International Workshop on Big Data
Beijing, China, Oct 10 – 12, 2013

Big Data recently has become a new ubiquitous term to describe large datasets that are challenging to store, search, share, visualize, and analyze.Effective managementand analysis of theBig Datawould bring great benefitsand unique opportunities to the users. However, the conventional methodsare limited on providing desirableoperational functions on Big Data. The Big Data workshop 2013 (BigData’13)is to promote research works in this emerging area of Big Data-inspired computing, networks, systems, and applications.BigData’13, held in conjunction with CyberC 2013, aims to provide a leading forum for exchanging and sharingexperiences, new ideas, and research results onbroad topics on 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 2013 are promoted to freely enjoy CyberC 2013 and Big Data Summits. Both of the events are co-sponsored and participated by a number of industry giants.

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.

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, including the workshops’ papers, will be published by IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore database. They will further arranged for indexing through IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), and Thomson ISI. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, should register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE Xplore and EI after the conference.
