Thematic Series

Big Data

Journal of Internet Services and Applications welcomes submissions to the new thematic series on Big Data

We have all heard the heavy declarations surrounding "big data", such as "data is the new oil", "data analytics is the new combustion engine", "data are the new raw material for business", etc. Behind such hype, lie two fundamental truths: First, humans and organisations are inundated with massive volumes of complex data, seriously impeding their ability to manage it and make sense of it in a time-critical fashion. Second, it has been proven that in a wide range of domains intelligent analyses of data can lead to profound insights, which in turn can introduce great benefits to businesses, public organizations, and individuals. With this Thematic Series, JISA aims to publish top-quality research contributions in this area, emphasizing big data infrastructures, services, and applications.

Potental topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Big Data Systems, Services, and Applications
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Learning from and Mining Big Data
