Aims and Scope

We live in an era of data deluge. Pervasive sensors collect massive amounts of information on every bit of our lives, churning out enormous streams of raw data in various formats. Mining information from unprecedented volumes of data promises to limit the spread of epidemics and diseases, identify trends in financial markets, learn the dynamics of emergent social-computational systems, and also protect critical infrastructure including the power grid and the Internet’s backbone network. While Big Data can be definitely perceived as a big blessing, big challenges also arise with large-scale datasets. The sheer volume of data makes it often impossible to run analytics using a central processor and storage, and distributed processing with parallelized multi-processors is preferred while the data themselves are stored in the cloud. As many sources continuously generate data in real time, analytics must often be performed “on-the-fly” and without an opportunity to revisit past entries. Due to their disparate origins, the resultant datasets are often incomplete and include a sizable portion of missing entries. In addition, massive datasets are noisy, prone to outliers, and vulnerable to cyber-attacks. These effects are amplified if the acquisition and transportation cost per datum is driven to a minimum. Overall, Big Data present challenges in which resources such as time, space, and energy, are intertwined in complex ways with data resources. Given these challenges, ample signal processing opportunities arise. This special issue seeks to provide a venue for ongoing research in novel models applicable to a wide range of Big Data analytics problems, as well as algorithms and architectures to handle the practical challenges, while revealing fundamental limits and insights on the mathematical trade-offs involved.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Theoretical foundations and algorithms for Big Data analytics
- Compressive sampling, matrix completion, low-rank models, and dimensionality reduction
- Graph, latent factor, tensor, dynamic, and multirelational data models
- Robustness to outliers and misses; convergence and complexity issues; performance analysis
- Scalable, online, active, decentralized, deep learning, quantum information processing, and optimization
- Randomized schemes for learning from very large matrix, tensor, and graph data
- Human-machine learning systems with limited labeled and massive unlabeled data

Architectures and applications for large-scale data analysis and signal processing
- Scalable, distributed computing, e.g., Mapreduce, Hadoop
- Streaming for real time-analytics and graph processing, e.g., Pregel, Giraph
- Systems biology; bioinformatics; neuroscience; health informatics; semantics; sentiment and natural language processing
- Green energy and power grid analytics; climate; astronomical; geoscience; multimodal sensing
- Social and information networks; financial and e-trading; now-casting
- Preference measurement; recommender systems; targeted advertising
