BigData Conference 2020 Call for Papers
2020 International Conference on Big Data (BigData Conference 2020,

BigData Conference 2020 organizing committee invites you to participate in 2020 edition of BigData Conference, to be held on June 22 – 26, 2020, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

Bigdata Conference 2020 is a member of Services Conference Federation (SCF). SCF 2020 will have the following 10 collocated service-oriented sister conferences: 2020 International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2020), 2020 International Conference on Cloud Computing (CLOUD 2020), 2020 International Conference on Services Computing (SCC 2020), 2020 International Conference on Big Data (BigData Conference 2020),2020 International Conference on AI & Mobile Services (AIMS 2020), and 2020 World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2020), 2020 International Conference on Internet of Things (ICIOT 2020), 2020 International Conference on Cognitive Computing (ICCC 2020), 2020 International Conference on Edge Computing (EDGE 2020), and 2020 International Conference on Blockchain (ICBC 2020).

The technical program of BigData Conference 2020 will consist of a set of regular tracks and a new set of special tracks. The regular tracks are: regular research track, regular applications track, and short paper track. These tracks are similar to previous BigData Conference submission tracks. The regular research track will emphasize both theoretical and experimental research contributions. The regular applications track will pay special attention to insights derived from real world big data applications, particularly with respect to experience reports and evaluation results. The short paper track will consider concise papers for timely dissemination of new ideas and exploratory results.

The special tracks will significantly expand the scope of BigData Conference to include innovative contributions that cover the entire lifecycle of big data research: (1) vision papers to point out emerging challenges, (2) data sets and benchmarks (summarized by short papers) that enable innovative big data research, (3) technical papers that describe significant research output, (4) applications and experience papers that apply and evaluate research methods and tools, and (5) survey papers that organize and summarize important research results and resources. Accordingly, these broadly defined contributions will be evaluated by PC members with special interest and expertise in each phase of the research lifecycle: vision papers, research contributions, applications and experiences, and enabling resources that include data sets, benchmarks, and surveys. The two special tracks included for BigData Conference 2020 are: Real-Time Big Data Analytics, and Big Data/Smart Cities.

We also define the technical scope of big data research broadly from the 5V perspective. In addition to the traditional definition of big volume and high velocity, we also encourage submissions that describe techniques and tools for handling big variety and high veracity. Of special interest are submissions that start from big data containing big noise, and achieve significantly improved value of output data.

Technical topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

- Big Data Storage
- Big Data Indexing
- Big Data Cleaning
- Big Data Modeling
- Big Data Analytics
- Big Data Applications
- Big Data Value Chain
- 5G for Big Data
- Big Data Security and Privacy

All submissions must be original and previously unpublished papers. The submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Accepted and presented papers from all BigData Conference tracks will appear in the conference proceedings. Selected research track papers will be invited for extension and revision for publication (after journal reviewing process) in special issues of the Services Transactions on Services Computing (STSC), Services Transanctions on Big Data (STBD), International Journal of Web Services Research (JWSR), and International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management (IJBPIM). JWSR is indexed by SCI and EI [Link].

Submitted Research Track and Application Track manuscripts will be limited to 15 (LNCS Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the LNCS Proceedings template ( WORD , Latex). Submitted Short Paper track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (LNCS Proceedings style) pages. The authors can extend a maximum of 2 pages for each paper but will have to pay extra fees for each extra page. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the maximum page limit may not be reviewed. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, workshop proposals, and review process can be found at conference web site.

The Proceedings of Bigdata Conference 2020 will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer International Publishing AG. Currently the Abstracting and Indexing services covered by Springer’s data feeds for LNCS proceedings include ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (included in Web of Science), Engineering Index EI (Compendex and Inspec databases), DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus, and ZBlMath . For all 10 collocated conferences of SCF 2020, the content of this proceedings volume will be made freely accessible to anyone in the Springer’s digital library after four years upon publication.

For each paper, authors choose one appropriate track at submission time. However, the PC co-chairs may assign reviewers with appropriate expertise from all areas and tracks for each submission. In addition, if session slots are available, manuscripts submitted to one track may be recommended to another track for further consideration. If a paper is accepted by a track different from the original choice, the authors have the discretion to agree to the PC recommendation or to decline the paper acceptance.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register for the conference and present the paper. One Best Paper award and one Best Student Paper award will be granted at BigData Conference 2020. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student. The Best Paper Awards will be sponsored by Springer, which is a leading global scientific, technical and medical portfolio, providing researchers in academia, scientific institutions and corporate R&D departments with quality content through innovative information, products and services.

Submission System
Please submit all the track papers to Submission page (

BigData Conference 2020's policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge. Content of abstracts submitted to conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice.

Organizers of BigData Conference 2020 are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author, in offering a paper for presentation at BigData Conference conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper.

SCF As A Platform
As the founding member of the Services Conference Federation (SCF), the first International Conference on Web Services (ICWS) was held in June 2003 in Las Vegas, USA. Meanwhile, the First International Conference on Web Services - Europe 2003 (ICWS-Europe'03) was held in Germany in Oct, 2003. ICWS-Europe'03 is an extended event of the 2003 International Conference on Web Services (ICWS 2003) in Europe. In 2004, ICWS-Europe was changed to the European Conference on Web Services (ECOWS), which was held at Erfurt, Germany. SCF 2019 was held successfully in San Diego, USA. To celebrate its 18-year-old birthday, SCF 2020 will be held on June 22 - 26, 2020, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

The past 17 years, ICWS community has been expanded from Web engineering innovations to scientific research for the whole services industry. The service delivery platforms have been expanded to mobile platforms, Internet of Things, cloud computing, and edge computing. The services ecosystem is gradually enabled, value added, and intelligence embedded through enabling technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, and cognitive computing. In the coming years, all the transactions with multiple parties involved will be transformed to blockchain.

Based on the technology trends and best practices in the field, the Services Conference Federation (SCF) will continue serving as the conference umbrella's code name for all services-related conferences. SCF 2020 defines the future of New ABCDE (AI, Blockchain, Cloud, BigData & IOT) and begins the 5G for Services Era. We are very proud to announce that SCF 2020's 10 co-located theme topic conferences will all center around "services", while each focusing on exploring different themes (web-based services, cloud-based services, Big Data-based services, services innovation lifecycle, AI-driven ubiquitous services, blockchain driven trust service-ecosystems, industry-specific services and applications, and emerging service-oriented technologies).

SCF 2020 Highlights:
- Bigger Platform: The 10 collocated conferences (SCF 2020) get sponsorship from the Services Society which is the world-leading not-for-profits organization (501 c(3)) dedicated for serving more than 30,000 worldwide Services Computing researchers and practitioners. Bigger platform means bigger opportunities to all volunteers, authors and participants. Meanwhile, Springer provides sponsorship to best paper awards and other professional activities. All the 10 conference proceedings of SCF 2020 will be published by Springer and indexed in ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (included in Web of Science), Engineering Index EI (Compendex and Inspec databases), DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus, and ZBlMath.

- Brighter Future: While celebrating 2020 version of ICWS, SCF 2020 highlights the Third International Conference on Blockchain (ICBC 2020) to build the fundamental infrastructure for enabling secure and trusted services ecosystems. It will also lead our community members to create their own brighter future.

- Better Model: SCF 2020 will continue to leverage the invented Conference Blockchain Model (CBM) to innovate the organizing practices for all the 10 theme conferences. Senior researchers in the field are welcome to submit proposals to serve as CBM Ambassador for an individual conference to start better interactions during your leadership practices for organizing SCF 2020.

Look forward to your great contributions as a volunteer, author, and conference participant for the fast-growing worldwide services innovations community.
