Call For Papers

Big Data Challenges – Situation Awareness and Decision Support
The NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO) recently organized a multi-national workshop on “Big Data Challenges – Situation Awareness and Decision Support”. The aims of the workshop were to raise awareness of: common and different problems; available and foreseen technologies; capabilities and efforts; and also, to support the development of research collaborations.

The themes of the workshop explored how the availability of big data, as well as technologies to exploit big data, may assist the military in understanding the situations they currently encounter and will encounter, and how these may support them in making better decisions. The challenges for the development and opportunities for the exploitation of Big Data are likely to vary from domain to domain. The workshop was composed of presentations and discussions relating to a broad spectrum of potential (military) domains.

To reflect and build on these developments, the Journal of Defence & Security Technologies (JDST) issues this Call for Papers for an Issue on “Big Data Challenges – Situation Awareness and Decision Support”. This Issue intends to continue discussing views, challenges, and work on the use of big data to support the military with obtaining situation awareness and informed decision making.

Interested authors are invited to submit an original contribution addressing (but not limited to) one or more of the following topics:

Artificial Intelligence

Challenges in Big Data exploration / exploitation

Cyber defence and security

Decision support

Human cognition and perception

Human Factors

Information warfare

Medicine / Genomics

Modelling and simulation

Sensors and electronic technology
