The 2nd International Conference on Big Data Computing and Communication
(BIGCOM 2016)

July 29-31, 2016, Shenyang, Liaoning, China

Big Data promises to reshape tomorrow's knowledge, society and economy. The
technologies that are used to generate, collect, process, compute and
communicate Big Data have made significant progresses in the past few
years. Such a disruptive technology inevitably poses a number of
significant challenges on the underlying system design. The International
Conference on Big Data Computing and Communications (BigCom 2016), which is
to be held on July 29-31, Shenyang, Liaoning, China, aims to address these
challenges. The conference is targeted to attract researchers and
practitioners who are interested in Big Data analytics, management,
security and privacy, communication and high performance computing in its
broadest sense. We welcome original, unpublished research papers that
emphasize theoretical foundations, modeling, algorithmic methodologies, and
data-driven applications. We also welcome visionary papers on new and
emerging topics. The related topics include but not limited to the
