Short description:
Over the past 20 years, data has increased in a large scale in various fields. Hundreds of Petabyte are generated every day by industries, Internet companies, medias and social networks. This explosive increase of big masses of structured and unstructured data need more real-time analysis which challenges the existing traditional analytic tools. The exponential growth of organizations’ needs for data analysis for Business Intelligence purposes and Knowledge management requires more sophisticate tools. However, it impossible to perform any kind of exploratory or analysis on this Big amount of data by using desktop or non-parallel tools. Hence, the needs for developing of new technologies, methods and algorithms for Big data generation, acquisition, storage and analysis.
This track provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore and share the latest results, approaches, techniques, concepts, and technologies in Big Data, Business Intelligence, IR knowledge management, and Data Analytics.
