Call For Papers

As an overwhelming amount of data is generated at a faster rate every day from all sources, and applications such as cloud services, Web of Things (WoT), social network services and intelligent terminals, it has become more urgent than ever to design, deploy and provision services more wisely so that the provisioned services could support effective acquisition, storage, transformation, management and utilization of such data. Manipulating and getting the most out of the Big Data can bring unprecedented value and new opportunities that are critical to business success. Services should be ideally provisioned in a way that speeds up data processing, scales up with data volume, and improves the adaptability and extensibility over data diversity and uncertainties, and finally turns low-level data into actionable knowledge towards better understanding and manipulation of the Big Data. Big Data requires services across various domains, heterogeneous networks and cyber-physical worlds to be aggregated, interoperated, and linked together into a massive and complicated collaborative service ecosystem which could in turn handles the challenging issues of Big Data.


This special issue aims at presenting the latest developments, trends, and research solutions of service
provisioning in the Big Data era. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
- Efficient models and solutions for querying and processing Big Data
- Service modeling, delivery, deployment and evolution for Big Data
- Analytic services for Big Data
- Big Data as a Service
- Business analytics & Big Data practice
- Privacy Preserving Big Data analytics and services
- Linked data and linked services
- Knowledge discovery over massive datasets
- Social sensing and social network services
- Reasoning over uncertain data and unreliable services
- Mashup services and data integration
- Crowdsourcing services
- Web of Things services
- Service ranking and recommendation for Big Data
- Credibility of data provisioning services
