Special Issue "Big Data Analytics and Computational Intelligence"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 November 2019
The 4th International Conference on Big Data Analytics, Data Mining, and Computational Intelligence 2019 (BigDaCI’19) will be held in Porto, Portugal during 16–18 July 2019. The BigDaCI’19 conference is expected to provide an opportunity for researchers to meet and discuss the latest solutions, scientific results, and methods regarding solving intriguing problems in the fields of big data analytics, intelligent agents, and computational intelligence and their applications in science, technology, business, and commerce. For more detail, please check http://www.bigdaci.org/call-for-papers/
The scope and topics of interest of the Special Issue papers follow those BigDaCI’19 and are listed below:
- Big data algorithms and architectures;
- Computational intelligent frameworks for big data processing;
- Data mining topics and applications.
The authors of a number of selected full papers of high quality will be invited after the conference to submit revised and extended versions of their originally accepted conference papers to this Special Issue of Information published by MDPI in open access. The selection of these best papers will be based on their ratings in the conference review process, the quality of their presentation during the conference, and the impact they will be expected to have on the research community.
The conference paper should be cited and noted on the first page of the paper; authors are asked to disclose that it is a conference paper in their cover letter and include a statement on what has been changed compared to the original conference paper. Submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or review articles, with 50% extension of new results. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure.
Accepted papers will be published in open-access format in Information and collected together in this Special Issue website. We would like to publish the extended best papers of the conference with Article Processing Fees waived. The deadline for submission to this Special Issue is 20 November 2019.
Please prepare and format your paper according to the Instructions for Authors. Use the LaTeX or Microsoft Word template file of the journal (both are available from the Instructions for Authors page). Manuscripts should be submitted online via our susy.mdpi.com editorial system.
