*Call For PapersSpecial Issue on “Big Data in Ubiquitous Computing”
<>IEEE Transaction on Big
Data <>Scope and AimsWith the continuous
expansion of ubiquitous sensors, devices, networks and Internet of Things,
all kinds of data become widely available and large in amount. Generation
of huge amounts of data, called big data, reflects the dynamics of physical
world and can be the basis for ubiquitous intelligence. Big data in
ubiquitous intelligence scenarios exhibit some specific characteristics,
like multi-source, heterogeneous, large-scale, real-time streaming,
continuous, ever-expanding and spatial-temporal. Traditional ubiquitous
computing approaches or systems began to show their limitations. It is
difficult to manage and utilize all kinds of big data to accelerate
ubiquitous intelligence in real-world. We believe that we need a new way
for ubiquitous intelligence and computing where big data is immensely
involved, especially for the data trace collected from ambient sensors,
wearable, social media and so on. Intensive research is required on the
collaboration between big data and ubiquitous computing. This special
issue, as a dedicated forum, aims for the scientific and industrial
community to present their novel models, methodologies, techniques and
solutions which can address theoretical and practical issues.Topics of
InterestWe invite authors from academia and industry to submit their
original research as well as review articles to present latest progresses
for current development or future goals in this field. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to: - Basic theory of big data and ubiquitous
computing- System architecture and infrastructure of big data and
ubiquitous computing: including computing architecture, cloud computing
technology and platform, edge computing technology and platform- Big data
acquisition and pre-processing in ubiquitous computing- Storage management
models, techniques and systems for big data in ubiquitous computing-
Methods and algorithms for ubiquitous intelligent and ubiquitous computing:
including machine learning, data mining, social network analysis, web
mining and retrieval, business intelligence, ranking and recommendation,
ontology-based storage management and analytical mining of large-scale
semantic data, virtualized analysis and computation, etc.- Parallel
computation models, frameworks and systems for big data: including models,
frameworks and systems of MapReduce, stream computing, hybrid parallel
computation and programming- Privacy and security of big data and
ubiquitous computing- System solutions and tool platform for big data and
ubiquitous computing- Industrial Applications of Big data and ubiquitous
computingSpecial Issue Editors - Jianwu Wang, University of Maryland,

Important Dates - Manuscript Submission Deadline (Extended): October 15th,
2017- First Round Decisions: December 15th, 2017- Revision Deadline if
needed: January 30th, 2018- Second Round Decisions: March 30th, 2018- Final
Manuscript: April 30th, 2018Paper Submission GuidelinesThis issue will
contain papers directly submitted from the wider research community along
with selected papers from the 14th IEEE International Conference on
Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC 2017,
<>). Papers selected from UIC will be
substantially extended with at least 30% difference from its conference
version. All submissions will go through a two-round peer-review process by
at least three international researchers. Before submitting your
manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the Instructions for
Authors for IEEE Transactions on Big Data (TBD). The complete manuscript
should be submitted through TBDs submission system. To ensure that you
submit to the correct special issue, please select "Special Issue on Big
Data in Ubiquitous Computing" in the dropdown menu upon submission. In your
cover letter, please also clearly mention the title of the SI.The page
limit is 14 double column pages including references and author
biographies. For submissions from conference paper extensions, all of them
must include a summary of differences and a copy of the previous paper(s)
as supplemental material.More InformationThe main website of the special
issue is at
