2. Evaluation of Information Quality for Astronomy Data from Telescopes, as well as Derived Data Products (Meta-Data)
3. New Scientific Standards for Information Processing and Mining, and their Quality Evaluation
4. System Architectures, Design and Deployment of Solar and Stellar Astronomy Data Archives, Portals and Analytical Services
5. Data Management and Stream Mining for Astronomy Data in Cloud and Distributed Environments
6. Integration of Heterogeneous Information from Multiple Data Repositories for the purpose of Knowledge Discovery from these Databases
B. Solar & Stellar Data Science, Informatics and Statistics
1. New Computational Models for Search, Retrieval, and Mining of Astronomy Data
2. Scalable Algorithms and Systems for Solar & Stellar Activity Recognition
3. Solar & Stellar Astronomy Data Search Architectures, their Scalability, Efficiency, and Real-life Usefulness
4. Visualization and Interaction Tools for Large Astronomy Data Bases
5. Computational Astrostatistics (e.g., irregularly sampled data, multivariate and survival analysis, nonlinear regression)
6. Hyperspectral Imaging: Technologies and Techniques
7. Cloud-, Distributed-, and Stream-Data Mining for High Velocity Astronomy Data
8. Image Processing for Unbiased Image, Spatial and Time Series Analysis

2. Helioseismology and Asteroseismology
3. Flares, Planets and Supernovae – Identifying Transient/Periodic Events in Time Series Data
4. Solar and Stellar Dynamo Modeling
1. Please submit a full-length paper (up to 10 page IEEE 2-column format) through the online submission system. Our system for SABID 2019 submissions is already available online.
2. Papers should be formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript Formatting Guidelines (search for "Paper Submission" section on IEEE Big Data 2019 CFP Website).
3. After being carefully reviewed by at least 3 PC members, all accepted papers will be included in the IEEE International Conference on Big Data Workshops Proceedings, published by the IEEE Computer Society Press (also included in the IEEE Digital Library), and made available at the conference.
4. Selected papers (after their significant expansion and another round of independent reviews) will be invited to a special journal issue. Best papers from SABID‘14 were published in Elsevier’s journal on “Astronomy and Computing”, and best works from SABID’16 were published in a highly-ranked IOPScience's “Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series” (2017 Impact Factor: 8.561).
