General Information

Big data & IoT convergence technology has recently emerged as the next frontier for innovation, competition, and productivity of many fields including science, engineering, industries, society, and public sectors. Big data is a collection of huge data sets that is difficult to process using traditional computing database technologies. IoT will be the biggest source of big data in the future. Big data technology includes capturing, curation, storage, search, sharing, transfer, analysis and visualization of big data and becomes the core platform for intelligent management of the IoT services. This workshop focuses on recent developments and applications of big data and IoT services in various application domains.

Technical Topics

Workshop focus on topics related to the development and applications of big data and IoT convergence, which include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Big Data Platform or Infrastructure
    – Cloud computing techniques
    – Big data as a service
    – Big data platforms
    – Big data in mobile or pervasive computing environments.
  • Big Data Management and Analysis
    – Hive and R analysis for big data
    – Data Mining for Big Data
    – Visualization for big data analysis
    – Big data analytics and social media

All papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, and uploaded on EDAS. The direct link for paper submission is https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=22905&track=84447. There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to accommodate the most recent research outcomes. The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, double-column pages using at least 10 pt (or higher) size fonts on A4 or letter pages in IEEE style format. The maximum number of pages is 6 for full papers and 3 for short papers. Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available on the conference web site (http://www.icufn.org).

Submitted papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation. All accepted papers will appear in the IEEE Xplore Digital library and will be indexed by SCOPUS and EI Compendex only if at least one of the authors registers at the full registration rate and attends to present the paper. Also, extended versions of selected papers will be published in the following international journals (SCIE-indexed) as a special section for the ICUFN 2017.

– Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (SCIE)
– Wireless Personal Communications (SCIE)
– International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks (SCIE)
– Mobile Information System (SCIE)
– Sensors (SCIE)
– INFORMATION Journal (Scopus)
– International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (Scopus)
– ICT Express
– Recent Advances on Communications and Networking Technology
