BDCAT 2020 : 7th IEEE/ACM Big Data Computing, Application Technology
Call For Papers
The IEEE/ACM International Conference on Big Data Computing, Applications and Technologies (BDCAT) is an annual conference series aiming to provide a platform for researchers from both academia and industry to present new discoveries in the broad area of big data computing and applications.
This will be the 7th BDCAT in a successful conference series of community-driven events. Previous events were held in London, UK (BDCAT 2014), Limassol, Cyprus (BDCat 2015), Shanghai, China (BDCAT 2016), Austin, Texas, USA (BDCAT 2017), Zurich, Switzerland (BDCAT 2018) and Auckland, New Zealand (BDCAT 2019).
BDCAT2020 will be hosted by the University of Leicester and will be held in conjunction with the 13th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing. The city of Leicester is a major city in the middle of country and is well connected to the rest of the world with road, rail and air networks.
