2013 IEEE International Conference on Big Data to issue Call for Workshop Proposals

21 Jan 2013 Silicon Valley - The IEEE International Conference on Big Data will be organized October 6-9, 2013 in Silicon Valley, California, USA. The Programme Committees of the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData 2013) invite proposals for Workshops. Selected workshops will hold a central position within the larger Conference, which will bring together top academic and industrial researchers from all over the world to exchange cutting edge research ideas in Big Data research, development and practice. Within these fields, workshops at BigData form crucial focal points for emerging communities and forums for the examination of new ideas.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop, forming the programme committees, reviewing and selecting the papers, and guaranteeing a high quality worthy of the prestige and breadth of the Conference. All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, made available at the Conference.

The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing selected papers (after their expansion and revision) into books or special journal issues. Workshops should cover at least a single session (6 regular papers). The workshop organizers should ensure registration and presence of authors of accepted papers.

Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and initiatives in Big Data. The workshops should provide an informal and vibrant forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share their

research results and practical development experiences in Big Data research, development and practice.

Workshop topics may be narrow, e.g., Clouding Computing/Grid Computing/Stream Computing for Big Data; Big Data stream Mining, Big Graph Data Mining, or broad, e.g., Big Data Foundations, Big Data management, Big Data Mining and Searching, Big Data Privacy and Security, Big Data Application, etc.

Prospective workshop organizers are encouraged to contact workshop chairs for feedback.

Important dates include:

  • April 5, 2013: Workshop proposal submission due: a proposed workshop announcement is sent by e-mail to any of the Workshop Chairs
  • April 15, 2013: Notification to workshop proposers
  • May 30, 2013: Each workshop organizer sends out Call for Workshops Papers

Proposals for 2013 IEEE BigData Workshops should contain the following components:

1. Workshop Title (e.g., Visualization and Analytics for Big Data)

2. Introduction to workshop (a few sentences about the background, importance, purpose, interests, etc. of workshop)

3. Research topics included in the workshop (list a number of interesting topics or areas covered by workshop)

4. Important dates (These dates are for your reference except the Camera-ready submission date):

  • July 30, 2013: Due date for full workshop papers submission
  • August 20, 2013: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
  • September 10, 2013: Camera-ready of accepted papers
  • October 6-9 2013: Workshops

5. Programme Chairs or co-chairs: (1-3 experts in the research areas of workshop)

6. Programme Committee Members: (at least 5 experts in the research areas)

7. Invited keynote speakers (optional)

Workshop Chairs:
