Advanced analytics techniques assist Big Data in processing large sets of complex data. Wireless big data techniques have recently provided us with in-depth knowledge of the 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) and other emerging wireless technologies. These data-driven methodologies have further assisted in the optimization of advanced data processing algorithms, the restructuring of wired and wireless networks, their operation and optimization. This book aims in presenting the latest Big Data challenges within the research and industrial domains.

The methodologies for intelligently processing voluminous and complex data also demonstrate the current state-of-the-art in terms of computing implementations. This volume will include the best papers of the BDAW'20 conference and other possible external contributions. A second volume focused on Wireless Networks may be opened for additional submissions if a large number of chapters will be absorbed by the current one.

I would like to express my gratitude in advance to all the researchers that will contribute to the success of this book project by submitting their chapters. I would like to thank all the members of the expert advisory committee for their willingness to assist in the reviewing process and the organization of the book. Finally, I would like to thank Mr Faouzi Hidoussi for organizing such an important scientific conference and for inspiring the creation of this book. I hope this volume will influence the next generation of Big Data and Wireless Network scientists positively in further pursuing new research projects. Even more efficient solutions are required to surpass the current technological bottlenecks that the computing community is experiencing. The topics to be possibly covered by the book are presented next.
