C-Big 2012 : International Workshop on Collaborative Big Data
Call For Papers
The ability to collect, integrate, and analyze data from large number of diverse data sources has increased the amount of data collected and processed by individual organizations on the order of several tens to hundreds of TB. This data can be efficiently utilized for better decision making, improved business intelligence, as well as for enabling new knowledge and services.
Collaborative generation and utilization of large quantities of data, either through crowdsourcing or through efforts of different organizations and groups creates notable research opportunities. The potential benefits of Collaborative Big Data, as well as new and unexpected challenges are still emerging. Managing, processing, and making sense of this data pose new challenges in storage, networking, database management, data mining, knowledge discovery, information security and privacy.
C-Big 2012 brings together researchers and practitioners from around the world to share their experiences on creating, managing, and handling Collaborative Big Data and its benefits.
The authors of selected papers from the workshop will be invited to submit extended versions of the papers to a special issue in Elsevier's Information Systems journal.

Paper Submission deadline: August 1, 2012
Notification to authors: September 1, 2012
Camera-ready submission deadline: September 10, 2012
Submitted manuscripts should closely reflect the final papers as they will appear in the Proceedings, and should not exceed 8 pages in two-column IEEE proceeding format. We urge the authors to prepare their papers according to the Latex or Microsoft Word templates found at IEEE Author Digital Tool Box, under the "Template for Transactions" section.
All papers are refereed through a single blind process. All papers must be submitted online.
All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed. All accepted papers will be made available in IEEE Xplore and external indexing services (DBLP database, ZB1Math/CompuServe, IO-Port, EI, Scopus, INSPEC, ISI proceeding - pending approval).
