Big data is an emerging paradigm applied to datasets whose size is beyond
the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, manage, and process
the data within a tolerable elapsed time. Such datasets are often from
various sources (Variety) yet unstructured such as social media, sensors,
scientific applications, surveillance, video and image archives, Internet
texts and documents, Internet search indexing, medical records, business
transactions and web logs; and are of large size (Volume) with fast data
in/out (Velocity). More importantly, big data has to be of high value
(Value) and establish trust in it for business decision making (Veracity).
Various technologies are being discussed to support the handling of big
data such as massively parallel processing databases, scalable storage
systems, cloud computing platforms, and MapReduce.

Big data is more than simply a matter of size; it is an opportunity to find
insights in new and emerging types of data and content, to make business
more agile, and to answer questions that were previously considered beyond
our reach. Distributed systems is a classical research discipline
investigating various distributed computing technologies and applications
such as cloud computing and MapReduce. With new paradigms and technologies,
distributed systems research keeps going with new innovative outcomes from
both industry and academia. For example, wide deployment of MapReduce is a
distributed programming paradigm and an associated implementation to
support distributed computing over large datasets on cloud. BigDataSE is
created to provide a prime international forum for researchers, industry
practitioners and environment experts to exchange the latest fundamental
advances in the state of the art and practice of Big Data and broadly
related areas.

BigDataSE 2015 is the next event in a series of highly successful
International Conferences, previously held as BigDataSE2014 (Beijing,
China, September 2014), BigDataSE2013 (Sydney, Australia, December 2013),
BigDataMR-12 (Xiangtan, China, November 2012), AHPCN-12 (Bradford, UK, June
2012), AHPCN-11 (Banff, Canada, September 2011), AHPCN-10 (Melbourne,
Australia, September 2010), AHPCN-09 (Seoul, Korea, June 2009), AHPCN-08
(Dalian, China, September 2008).

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not
exceed 8 pages, including tables, figures, references and appendixes, in
IEEE Computer Society proceedings format with Portable Document Format
(.pdf). Please submit your paper

Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness,
significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Submission of a paper
should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present
the work. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE CPS
Proceedings. Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after
further revision, will be recommended to high quality international
