Call For Papers
Special Issue on: "Big Data and Data-Driven Science"
Dr. Sugam Sharma, Iowa State University, USA
Today, a paradigm shift is being observed in science, with the focus gradually shifting away from operation to data, which is greatly influencing decision making. This science is being driven by data and is termed as data science.
In this internet age, we are inundated with data from multiple sources in various forms, especially social media, and in the modern data science vocabulary, this large, complex, structured or unstructured and heterogeneous data is recognised as “big data”. The volume of this data has grown beyond the exabyte magnitude. The rapid pace of data growth through various disparate sources has seriously challenged the data management and analytic capabilities of traditional databases. Furthermore, the velocity of expansion of the amount of data gives rise to a complete paradigm shift in how new-age data is processed.
Confidence in the data engineering of existing data processing systems is gradually fading, whereas the capabilities of new techniques for capturing, storing, visualising and analysing data are evolving.
This special issue intends to address current data-driven research challenges, and seeks articles discussing big data and analytics from various perspectives such as design and development of new tools and techniques, comprehensive analytics, applications, intelligent decision making and so forth. Submitted research articles should present innovative findings that make substantial theoretical and empirical contributions to knowledge in data science.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
Architecture, design and development of new tools and techniques for big data
Big data analytics and associated issues and challenges
Big data analytics for smart decision making in interdisciplinary domains
Big data and business intelligence
Big data and cloud-enabled analytics
