Call for Papers

Big data and smart computing are emerging research fields that have recently drawn much attention from computer science and information technology as well as from social sciences and other disciplines. The goal of the International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp), initiated by KIISE (Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers), is to provide an international forum for exchanging ideas and information on current studies, challenges, research results, system developments, and practical experiences in these emerging fields. Following the successes of the previous BigComp conferences in Bangkok, Thailand (2014), Jeju, Korea (2015), Hong Kong, China (2016), Jeju, Korea (2017), Shanghai, China (2018), and Kyoto, Japan (2019), the 2020 International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp 2020) will be held in Busan, Korea. The conference is co-sponsored by IEEE and KIISE. BigComp 2020 invites authors to submit original research papers and original work-in-progress reports on big data and smart computing.
