IEEE Big Data 2024 Call for Papers

2024 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData 2024)
December 15-18, 2024

December 15-18, 2024 – Washington DC, USA
New "Vision Paper" category (details below)

In recent years, “Big Data” has become a new ubiquitous term. Big Data is transforming science, engineering, medicine, healthcare, finance, business, and ultimately our society itself. The IEEE Big Data conference series started in 2013 has established itself as the top tier research conference in Big Data.

The 2024 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData 2024) will continue the success of the previous IEEE Big Data conferences. It will provide a leading forum for disseminating the latest results in Big Data Research, Development, and Applications.

We solicit high-quality original research papers (and significant work-in-progress papers) in any aspect of Big Data with emphasis on 5Vs (Volume, Velocity, Variety, Value and Veracity), including the Big Data challenges in scientific and engineering, social, sensor/IoT/IoE, and multimedia (audio, video, image, etc.) big data systems and applications. The conference adopts single-blind review policy. We expect to have a very high quality and exciting technical program at Washington DC USA this year.

    The Industrial Track solicits papers describing implementations of Big Data solutions relevant to industrial settings. The focus of industry track is on papers that address the practical, applied, or pragmatic or new research challenge issues related to the use of Big Data in industry. We accept full papers (up to 10 pages) and extended abstracts (2-4 pages).

    The Government Track welcomes papers discussing the usefulness and need for publicly-contribution big data and open data and their use. Specifically, data utilization scenarios, needs analysis, data utilization obstacle analysis and solutions, data integration processes, interfaces as data utilization solutions, visualization, use cases, evidence-based policy making, building an ecosystem for solving social issues, analyzing their cases, comparing international and regional differences, and conducting comparative surveys before and after specific events (like Covid-19). We are also looking for other big data solutions related to national and local governments, and public services.

    Please submit an extended abstract (2-4 pages) OR a full-length paper (up to 10 pages) through the online submission page (Industrial & Government Track dedicated page).

    Paper Submission

    Please submit a full-length paper (up to 10 page IEEE 2-column format, reference pages counted in the 10 pages, or a short Vision paper (up to 5 pages IEEE 2-column format, including references) through the online submission system.
