SITIS 2016- The 12th International Conference on Signal Image

BigCVEn 2016

3rd International Workshop on BIG data meets CLOUD and Virtualized Environment
Collocated with: 

November 28 - December 1, 2016 - Naples, Italy

Scope of the Workshop
During the last decade, the progress of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) exponentially increased the quantity of information available. The resulting data is often called Big Data, being characterized by its important volume, high velocity and variety. Related issues concern the problem of managing, integrating, querying and visualizing such massive and heterogeneous data. Specific techniques and methods have been developed by the international community. Virtualized environments and their related applications have been identified as suitable for processing and managing such data. Still, other issues have been identified and several trends are emerging to address those issues.
On the one hand, cloud computing provides a powerful model to connect users to information resources from anywhere in the world. It has become a significant technology with several advantages including cost savings, access to greater computing resources, high availability, and scalability.
On the other hand, the advent of Semantic Web has raised new opportunities and challenges. In this context, Big Data and Linked Data are being an integral part of the web infrastructure, where massive amounts of connected or possibly interconnectable data, addressable via URIs/IRIs, are available. These technologies are paving the way of the Web of Data. Moreover, ontology-based systems have been recognized as interesting and promising in what concerns data interoperability, mainly because they handle formal representations of data over which one may perform reasoning. Given the underlying heterogeneity and complexity of Big Data, several research issues have been identified in domains such as: Enterprise Information Systems' Interoperability, Building Information Modeling (BIM), Bioinformatics, E-Health, E-Government.
The aim of the BigCVEn Workshop is to provide a forum to bring together scientists, researchers and practitioners interested in these emerging architectures and methodologies for capturing, storing, managing and analyzing massive, dispersed, interconnected data over the Web. It also aims to discuss the connection and\or interaction between Web of Data/Linked Data and Big Data/Cloud Computing.

Each submission should be at most 8 pages in total including bibliography and well-marked appendices, and must follow the IEEE double columns publication format available at:
·         Microsoft Word DOC
·         LaTex Formatting Macros
Paper submission will only be online via: Easy Chair.

Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make final paper selections.
All the papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the conference proceedings. The proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and major indexes. They will be available at the conference.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop. Workshop registration fee is determined by SITIS. A single registration for the workshop or the conference allows attending both events.
