Call for Papers

7th EAI International Conference on Big Data Technologies and 
Applications (BDTA 2016)
NOVEMBER 17-18, 2016

Due to the explosive evolution of Information Technology and Com-puter 
Science, we have entered in the Big Data Age, and this is real-ly a 
scientific revolution, not just a fashion. As always, the technolog-ical 
aspects evolve faster than the scientific community mentality. 
Transforming Big Data into Big Knowledge and developing a new kind of 
Knowledge-Based Systems require new visions and ap-proaches. Companies, 
facing the Big Data challenges, are moving faster in the right direction 
than the scientific community, being un-der a stronger competitive 
pressure. They were forced to renounce to wishful thinking, like the 
idea that a few variables, embedded in a few rules, discovered using the 
old fashion statistics, will give intelli-gent support for business 
decisions. We have to do the same for developing various applications.
Moreover, motivated by the big data analytics needs, new compu-ting and 
storage technologies are developing rapidly and pushing for new high-end 
hardware geared toward big data problems. While the high performance 
computing technologies have the potential to greatly improve 
effectiveness of big data analytics, the cost and so-phistications of 
those technology and limited initial application sup-port often make 
them inaccessible to the end users and not fully utilized in academia 
years later. Meanwhile, comprehensive analytic software environment and 
platforms, such as R and Python, have become increasingly popular 
open-source platforms for data analy-sis.
Also, Computational Intelligence (CI) methodologies, tailored to Big 
Data, and combined with a proper vision of living systems, e.g., as 
complex dynamical systems or networks of interacting entities, could 
pave the way to Knowledge-Based System.

Potential topics of interest, which can be investigated from different 
perspectives (social, organizational, technological) include, but are 
not limited to, the fol-lowing application domains:
**	Data Visualization and Visual Analytics
**	Natural Language Processing in Big Texts
**	Biomedical imaging pre-processing and Analysis
**	Hardware and Software solutions for Big Data Searching, Storing and 
**	Structured and Unstructured Data/Text/Web Min-ing
**	Deep Learning architecture, representations, un-supervised and 
supervised algorithms
**	Scalable computational intelligence tools
**	Novel Computational Intelligence approaches for data analysis
**	Evolutionary and Bio-inspired approaches for Big Data analysis
**	New domains and novel applications related to Big Data technologies

Paper Submission
Regular papers should be no more than 10 pages in length. Complete 
formatting and submission instruc-tions can be found on the conference 
website. Submis-sions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three 
expert reviewers. Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, 
clarity and relevance. Submission of the paper implies agreement of the 
author(s) to attend the conference and present the paper if accepted. 
Full de-tails of submission procedures are available here: 

All presented papers in the conference will be published in the 
proceedings of the conference.
Accepted papers will be published in the IISSC Conference Proceedings 
and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). The 
proceedings will be available both in book form and via the SpringerLink 
digital library, which is one of the largest digital libraries online 
and covers a variety of scientific disciplines.
The proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing 
services: Elsevier (EI), Thomson Scientific (ISI), Scopus, Crossref, 
Google Scholar, DBLP. Best papers will be considered for publication in 
Mobile Networks and Applications (Springer) the EAI Endorsed 
Transactions on Scalable Information Systems.

The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading 
community-based organisation devoted to the advancement of innovation in 
the field of ICT.
