The 2016 IEEE International Conference on
Smart Data (Smart Data 2016)
December 15 - 18, 2016, Chengdu, China
Big data is a concept defined around 5 aspects: volume, velocity, variety, veracity and data value. While the three first (volume, velocity and variety) refer to data generation process, the last two emerge to deal with the quality and the usefulness of the data in any project, veracity and value. Smart Data aims to filter out the noise and hold the valuable data, which can be effectively used by enterprises and governments for planning, operation, monitoring, control, and intelligent decision making.
In the smart environments, the constantly generated data can assist to solve the current challenges in science, industry, business, daily life etc. Smart environments and smart data form a symbiosis and offer us big opportunities and transformative potential for intelligent decisions and predictive services. The major challenges we are facing involve extracting smart data from big data, and to extract valuable knowledge studying creative computing theories and techniques for smart data, and designing dynamic and globally cooperative infrastructure built upon smart data. How to analyze and handle the ever-increasing data becomes a key problem, especially for smart city, smart grids, smart building, and smart computing, etc.
The goal of this conference is to promote community-wide discussion identifying the novel technologies and theories for smart data and it use for Internet of Things. We seek submissions which invent new techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new research directions and discuss approaches for unsolved issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Handling uncertainty and incompleteness of big data
Big data preprocessing
Deep reasoning in smart data
Big data and smart data applications
Smart data in IoT
Smart information processing in IoT
Data analysis in smart transportation
Data-driven smart city by IoT
Health informatics in smart cities
Internet of things in smart environments
Technologies and applications in IoT
Smart multimedia services
Security, privacy and trust in big data
