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.
