International Workshop on Intelligent Big Data Systems (IBDS 2015)

In Conjunction with DASC 2015

 26-28 October, Liverpool, UK


Diverse multidisciplinary approaches are being continuously developed and advanced to address the challenges that Big Data research raises. In particular, the current academic and professional environments are working to produce algorithms, theoretical advance in big data science, to enable the full utilisation of its potential, and better applications.

The proposed workshop focuses on the dissemination of original contributions to discuss and explore multidisciplinary concepts, principles, tools, techniques and deployment models within Big Data. In particular, via the contribution of both academics and industry practitioners, the current approaches for the acquisition, interpretation, and assessment of relevant information will be addressed in order to advance the state-of-the-art Intelligent Big Data systems.


Contributions should focus on (but not limited to) the following topics:

  •  Statistical and dynamical properties of Big Data;
  •  Multidisciplinary applications of Big Data;
  •  Hadoop and Big Data;
  •  Data and text mining techniques for Big Data;
  •  Novel algorithms in classification, regression, clustering, and analysis;
  •  Distributed systems and cloud computing for Big Data;
  •  Big Data applications;
  •  Theory, applications and mining of networks associated with Big Data;
  •  Large-scale network data analysis;
  •  Data reduction, feature selection and transformation algorithms;
  •  Data visualisation;
  •  Distributed data analysis platforms;
  •  Scalable solutions for pattern recognition;
  •  Stream and real-time processing of Big Data;
  •  Information quality within Big Data;
  •  Threat detection in Big Data.
