CFP: IEEE SmartData-2022, August 22-25, 2022, Espoo, Finland (Many special issues)
[Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP]

The 8th IEEE International Conference on Smart Data (SmartData-2022) 
Espoo, Finland, 22-25 August, 2022

The IEEE SmartData-2022 Conference was planned to be held in Espoo, Finland, August 22-25, 2022. Accepted papers will be published by IEEE (IEEE-DL and EI indexed). Selected high quality papers will be recommended to special issues of SCI and EI journals.

Smart data aims to filter out noise data and produce valuable data, which can be effectively used by enterprises and governments for planning, operation, monitoring, control, and intelligent decision making. Although an unprecedentedly large amount of sensory data can be collected with the advancement of the Cyber-Physical-Social systems, the key is to explore how big data can become smart data and offer intelligence. Advanced big data modeling and analytics are indispensable for discovering the underlying structures of retrieved data and further acquiring smart data.

IEEE SmartData-2022 will be held in August 2022, Espoo, Finland. It aims to promote community-wide discussions about identifying intelligent technologies and theories for harvesting smart data from big data. It will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange novel ideas, results, experiences, and work in process in all aspects of smart data.

All accepted papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore and Engineering Index (EI).

Extended versions of selected excellent papers will be considered for publication in the following special issues of the journals. (confirmed)

1.IEEE Internet of Things Journal (IF: 9.471)
2.ACM Distributed Ledger Technologies: Research and Practice (ACM DLT)
3.Information Sciences (Elsevier) (IF: 6.795)
4.IEEE Network Magazine (TBD) (IF: 10.693)
5.Information Fusion (Elsevier) (TBD) (IF: 12.975)
