Call for papers

The complexity of Big Data technologies and the variety of competences required to design applications relying on them has emphasized the relevance of systems for managing and documenting Big Data architectures. Documentation, reconfiguration, and verification are for example crucial tasks for a solid design of technological solutions but are not easily supported in the current landscape of Big Data technologies. Rethinking data and information management in the context of Big Data technologies is then a primary goal for future research.

Methods, principles, and perspectives developed by the Data Semantics community can significantly contribute to this goal. Solutions for integrating and querying schema-less data, for example, have received much attention. Standards for metadata management have been proposed to improve data integration among silos and to make data more discoverable and accessible through heterogeneous infrastructures. A further level of application of Data Semantics principles into Big Data technologies involves Representing Processes, i.e. representing the entire pipeline of technologies connected to achieve a specific solution and make this representation shareable and verifiable to support a mature implementation of the Big Data production cycle.

The symposium will bring together leading researchers, engineers, and scientists from around the world.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

Big Data Management

Big Data Integration Architectures and Techniques

Quality of Big Data Services

Big Data Visualization

Big Data Security and Privacy

Performance of Big Data Architectures

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another conference or journal for consideration. All papers must be written in English. Submissions to pre-proceedings must be at most 4 pages long in total including references and appendices. Submissions should not be anonymized. Program Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.

Submission must be submitted electronically via Easy Chair.

At least one author of each accepted paper is requested to participate in the conference and present his/her work.

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended articles published in the Foundations of Computing and Decision Sciences journal. Extended articles will be selected for publication in the journal, based on reviews.
