The INNS Big Data conference 2016

 

October 23-25, 2016, Thessaloniki, Greece

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

###########################################

 

Big data is not just about storage of and access to data. Analytics play a
big role in making sense

of that data and exploiting its value. But learning from big data has become
a significant challenge

and requires development of new types of algorithms. Most machine learning
algorithms can't easily

scale up to big data. Plus there are challenges of high-dimensionality,
velocity and variety. 

 

The neural network field has historically focused on algorithms that learn
in an online, incremental mode

without requiring in-memory access to huge amounts of data. This type of
learning is not only ideal

for streaming data (as in the Industrial Internet or the Internet of
Things), but could also be used

on stored big data. Neural network technologies thus can become significant
components of big

data analytics platforms and this inaugural INNS Conference on Big Data will
begin that collaborative

adventure with big data and other learning technologies. 

 

Thus the aim of this conference is to

promote new advances and research directions in efficient and innovative
algorithmic approaches to

analyzing big data (e.g. deep networks, nature-inspired and brain-inspired
algorithms), implementations

on different computing platforms (e.g. neuromorphic, GPUs, clouds, clusters)
and applications

of Big Data Analytics to solve real-world problems (e.g. weather prediction,
transportation, energy

management).

 

Awards

###########################################################

* Best papers will be selected and awarded as follows:

- Best regular paper

- Best student paper

 

* This will be based on a combination of reviewers' comments, presentations
and importance and quality judged by a panel. 

 

* Best paper awards (500 Euros) are donated by the sponsor Springer Verlag,
Germany and will be commemorated by a certificate.
