Call for Workshops

2018 IEEE International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing is to provide an international forum for exchanging ideas and information on current studies, challenges, research results, system developments, and practical experiences in these emerging fields. Running annually since 2014, it currently attracts many participants, including the best talent in industry and academia. The conference will foster collaboration and bridge the academic- commercial gap in the database, artificial intelligence, network and big data communities.


We now encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly interactive workshops (either full-day or half-day) focusing on either in-depth analysis or broad-ranging approaches to exchange cutting edge research ideas in Big Data and smart computing research, development and practice.


These workshops will complement the main 2018 IEEE BigComp conference. The workshops will be held on the day before the main 2018 IEEE BigComp conference, i.e. Jan 15, 2018.


Workshop proposals are reviewed based on the quality of the proposal, its relation to the main IEEE BigComp topics, and the likelihood to attract enough participants as well as the hosting capacity of the venue.


Accepted workshop papers will also be published in the IEEE BigComp workshop proceedings, which will be indexed in the IEEE Digital Library, together with the main 2018 IEEE BigComp proceedings. All the workshop papers should be limited to no more than 8 pages in IEEE Conference format. And organizers are not allowed to submit their own papers to their workshops.


Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to the workshop chairs Yang Gao (, Feifei Li ( and Jee-Hyong Lee (
