2014 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData 2014)

http://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2014/index.htm
October 27-30, 2014, Washington DC, USA

In recent years, “Big Data” has become a new ubiquitous term. Big Data is transforming science, engineering, medicine, healthcare, finance, business, and ultimately society itself. The IEEE Big Data has established itself as the top tier research conference in Big Data. The first conference IEEE Big Data 2013 ( http://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2013/ ) was held in Santa Clara , CA from Oct 6-7, 2013, 259 paper submissions for the main conference and 32 paper submissions for the industry and government program. Of those, 44 regular papers and 53 short papers were accepted, which translates into a selectivity that is on-par with top tier conferences. Also, there were 14 workshops associated with IEEE Big Data 2013 covering various important topics related to various aspects of Big Data research, development and applications, and more than 400 participants from 40 countries attend the 4-day event.

The IEEE International Conference on Big Data 2014(IEEE BigData 2014) continues the success of the IEEE BigData 2013. It will provide a leading forum for disseminating the latest research in Big Data Research, Development, and Applications.

We solicit high-quality original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) in any aspect of Big Data with emphasis on 5Vs (Volume, Velocity, Variety, Value and Veracity) relevant to variety of data (scientific and engineering, social, sensor/IoT/IoE, and multimedia-audio, video, image, etc) that contribute to the Big Data challenges.
