Call for Papers (Deadline Over)

Streaming data, social media data, content, electronic medical records, astronomy surveys, genomic and proteomic studies result into repositories of terabytes/petabytes/exabytes scale and pose significant challenges in analysis, which can be transformed to opportunities in Data Science. Recent meetings (KDCloud10, KDCloud11, PDAC10) have generated interest in adopting cloud and distributed computing resources for large scale data management, data mining and knowledge discovery tasks. The First International Conference on Big Data Analytics (BDA 2012) is set in this backdrop. The goal of the conference is to generate interest among researchers by exposing them to ground breaking opportunities that arise during analysis and processing of massive volumes of distributed data stored across clusters of networked computers. We invite researchers, developers, and users to participate in this event to share and discuss the emerging challenges in developing data management and data mining solutions, and frameworks around cloud and distributed computing platforms.

Original and high-quality papers addressing these and closely related issues are invited. We strongly encourage papers that report experimental work and results.

Major topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Analytics as a Service
  • Architectural Design for Big Data Analytics
  • Conceptual Models for Analytics
  • Cognitive Models for Analytics
  • Data as a Service
  • Data Centric Networking
  • Data Management in Clouds
  • Data Models for Big Data Analytics
  • Domain-specific Analytics
  • Index Structures for Big Data Analytics
  • Interaction Design for Exploratory Analytics
  • Model Discovery
  • NoSQL and non-standard Data Models
  • Physical Data Organization for Big Data
  • Predictive Modeling
  • Programming Models for Big Data Analytics
  • Query Languages and Paradigms
  • Rule Mining from Big Data
  • Standards for Data Centers
  • Scalability and Performance issues
  • Security Analytics
  • Streaming Data Analytics
  • Summarization and Materialized views
  • Topic Modeling
  • Unstructured and Semi-structured data mining
  • Visual Analytics
