BIDMA 2018strives to offer papers which describe various tools, techniques, and methodologies which explore the contemporary challenges with data management, processing, and analytics.

b) Industry Track

The objective of the Industry Track at BIDMA 2018 is to establish dialogue and encourage collaboration among practitioners and researchers in the data analytics community. The industry track papers will address the application of data management and data analytics to a specific problem domain.

c) Education Track

This track explores research questions surrounding the role of data in education. Topics such as data-driven education as well as Big Data in curricula are addressed.

d) Thesis Track

This track is intended for students at any stage of their Ph.D. work. The selected students will be requested to present their work in a special session of the BIDMA 2018 Symposium.
