Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue on ‘Big Data and Internet of Things’ will contain selected and extended papers from the 4th International Conference on BDIOT' 2020, 22–24 August, Singapore http://www.bdiot.org/index.html. Internet of Things (IOT) is a platform and a phenomenon that allows everything to process information, communicate data, analyze context collaboratively, and in the service of individuals, organizations, and businesses. In the process of doing so, a large amount of data with different formats and content has to be processed efficiently, quickly, and intelligently through advanced algorithms, techniques, models, and tools. This new paradigm is enabled by the maturity of several different technologies, including the internet, wireless communication, cloud computing, sensors, big data analytics, and machine learning algorithms.

Big Data is another paradigm to describe the processing of data to help it 'make sense' to people using IoT. Big Data has five characteristics: volume, velocity, variety, veracity, and value. There are reports that Big Data skills can provide businesses and research communities with additional incentives, opportunities, funding, and innovation for their long-term strategies. New knowledge, tools, practices, and infrastructures will enable breakthrough discoveries and innovation in physical science, engineering, mobile services, medicine, business, education, earth science, security, and risk analysis.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Big Data and Cognitive Computing is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
