We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this CFP

Call for papers: Special Issue on Soft Computing for Big Data<http://www.journals.elsevier.com/applied-soft-computing/call-for-papers/special-issue-on-soft-computing-for-big-data/> in the Elsevier Journal of Applied Soft Computing (5-Year Impact Factor: 2.526)

The era of big data computing is coming. As scientific applications become more data intensive, the management of data resources and dataflow between the storage and compute resources is becoming bottleneck. Analyzing, visualizing, and managing these large data sets are posing significant challenges to the research community. The conventional parallel systems and software will run out of performance with the explosive data scale. Up to now more and more researchers are seeking high-level data level and task level parallelism using novel soft computing architectures and software.

This special issue solicits innovative ideas and solutions in all aspects around data intensive computing in system and application domains. The general scope of this issue covers the design, modeling, prototyping, programming and implementation of high performance computing architectures, systems and software for data-Intensive applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  *   Data-intensive computing applications, characteristics, challenges
  *   Innovative computer software architectures and systems for Big Data processing
  *   Big Data mining, advanced analytics and visualization
  *   MapReduce and new programming models for Big Data processing
  *   Operating systems and real-time processing for data-intensive applications
  *   Formal design and verification for data-intensive applications
  *   Languages and compiler support for data-intensive in high performance systems
  *   Interplay between software components for novel big data applications
  *   Performance characterization, evaluation, optimization and design trade-offs
  *   Energy-efficient issues for data-intensive systems
  *   Big data case studies such as Medicine, Healthcare, Finance, Business, Retailing, Transportation and Science. (e.g. DNA sequencing, deep learning).

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper was completely re-written or substantially extended (30%). The papers should be submitted via the Manuscript Central website and should adhere to standard formatting requirements.

Authors should submit their journal version at Manuscript Central adhering to the formatting instructions on the journal Web page and indicate that you are submitting to the Special Issue on Big Data Computing on the first page and in the field "Author's Cover Letter:" in manuscript central. For additional questions please send an email to the Guest Editors.
