The 14th International Conference on Intelligent Data Engineering and Automated Learning (IDEAL'13) Hefei, Anhui, China, October 20-23, 2013

Special Session on Big Data Call for Papers


Recent years have witnessed the unprecedented prevalence of "Big Data". Big Data is transforming science, engineering, medicine, healthcare, finance, business, and ultimately, the society itself. This year IDEAL'2013 is pleased to introduce a Special Session on Big Data. We wish to encourage researcher to submit high-quality original papers (including significant work-in-progress) in any aspect of Big Data with emphasis on 5Vs (Volume, Velocity, Variety, Value and Veracity): big data science and foundations, big data infrastructure, big data management, big data searching and mining, big data privacy/security, and big data applications.

  Instructions for Authors:

Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts (in pdf format) written in English by the deadline via the EasyChair online submission system. All submissions will be refereed by experts in the field based on originality, significance, quality and clarity.

All contributions must be original, should not have been published elsewhere and must not be submitted elsewhere during the review period. Papers should not exceed 8 pages and must comply with the format of Springer LNCS/LNAI Proceedings.

Accepted papers presented at the conference will be included in the Proceedings of IDEAL 2013, to be published by Springer in its LNCS Series, which is indexed in EI. In addition, selected papers will be invited for special issues in several leading international journals in the field, including the International Journals of Neural Systems (IJNS).
