Call For Papers

Big Data recently has become a new ubiquitous term to describe large datasets that are challenging to store, search, share, visualize, and analyze. Effective management and analysis of the Big Data would bring substantial benefits and unique opportunities to the users. However, the conventional methods are limited on providing desirable operations on effective Big Data analytics. The Big Data workshop 2016 (BigData 2016) is to promote research works in this emerging area of Big Data-inspired computing, networks, systems, and applications. BigData 2016, held in conjunction with CyberC 2016, aims to provide a leading forum for sharing and exchanging experiences, new ideas, and research results on broad topics of Big Data Research, Development, and Applications. It solicits high quality papers that illustrate novel Big Data models, architecture and infrastructure, management, search and processing, security and privacy, applications, surveys and industrial experiences.

Authors of Big Data workshop 2016 are promoted to freely enjoy CyberC 2016 and Big Data Summit. Both of the events are co-sponsored and participated by several Big Data related industry companies.

Authors are cordially invited to submit original research papers in any aspects of Big Data with emphasis on but are not limited to the following topics:

Electronic submission to with title of “Big Data 2016 Submission” is also accepted.

Please DO NOT submit both ways.

Manuscript Guidelines
All submitted manuscripts should be prepared as technical papers and may not exceed 8 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm) wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified text). For more information please see Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. The submitted manuscripts can be prepared in Word, or Latex using the IEEE templates, but authors should finally submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is English.

Manuscript submission procedure is available over the Web at We encourage you to use EDAS Online Submission by selecting “2016 Big Data”. If you have troubles in using the Web submission, you can also submit your paper to or contact us. Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file.
