Call For Papers

(BDA 2013)
Mysore, India
December 16--18 2013


Recently, data generation at the scale of terabytes/petabytes/exabytes have become
commonplace in many scientific and commercial domains. Streaming data, social media
content, electronic medical records, astronomy surveys, genomic and proteomic studies and
similar areas generate data at a scale that is becoming increasingly difficult to manage
using traditional database technologies. Big Data is an umbrella term used for such massive
collections of data. Besides volume, analytics has to face challenges like heterogeneity,
timeliness, complexity, velocity and privacy issues. The scale of such data poses
significant challenges for analytics, going beyond what can be supported by conventional
data, storage and retrieval models.

The International Conference on Big Data Analytics is set in this backdrop. The conference
was conceived as part of a collaboration between the University of Delhi, India and the
University of Aizu, Japan. The first BDA conference was successfully held in Delhi, India,
in December 2012. The enthusiastic response to this event prompted the decision to make the
BDA conference as an annual event under the umbrella of this collaboration. BDA 2013 will
be held in the city of Mysore, India in December 2013.

The goal of the conference is to generate interest among researchers, practitioners and
policy makers by exposing them to ground breaking opportunities arising from analysis and
processing of massive volumes of data. We invite researchers, developers, policy makers 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.

Major topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Analytics as a Service
* Architectural Design for Big Data
* Big Data Ethics
* Big Data Governance
* Conceptual Models for Analytics
* Cognitive Models for Analytics
* Clustering of Big Data
* 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
* Machine Learning techniques for Big Data
* Model Discovery from Big Data
* NoSQL and non-standard Data Models
* Physical Data Organization for Big Data
* Predictive Modeling
* Privacy Issues in Big Data Analytics
* 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
* Semantics and Big Data
* Streaming Data Analytics
* Summarization and Materialized views
* Topic Modeling
* Unstructured and Semi-structured Data Mining
* Visual Analytics

Original, high-quality papers addressing the above and related topics are invited. We
strongly encourage papers that report experimental work and results.
