        The 1st International Workshop on 

Big Data Management for the Internet of Things (BIOT2014)

       in Conjunction with IEEE COMPSAC 2014
       (Vasteras, Sweden - July 21-25, 2014)


  • Theme of BIOT2014 Workshop

A huge number of sensors, actuators and tags are getting networked these days. This leads to the “Internet of Things”, and provides smart and intelligent services to human society. However, this now raises the next question; how should we use the “Big Data” associated to, or collected from, those things? They say that it potentially contains the seeds of services, profiles of social-phenoma, even social knowledge and intelligence. However, we have not yet found systematic solutions for managing them effectively, and we sometimes fail to extract valuable information from, or to provide advanced services with, the dataset. Thus, in this workshop, in order to discuss and discover better solutions, we welcome papers that explore service platforms (i.e., network systems, architectures, data models and algorithms) that effectively integrate “Internet of Things” and “Big Data”.

The workshop topics include, but are not limited to: - Large-scale monitoring platforms - Large-scale control platforms - Data analysis and data applications - Control schemes and decision making - Data models and algorithms - NoSQL data management - Service design and use cases - System architecture and implementation - Communication protocols - Distributed processing (overlays, Hadoop-based, etc.) - Privacy management and anonymization - Social embedding of applications - Application case studies - Performance, scalability, robustness

We respect the works inspired by practical studies with real world interactions because this workshop wants to input the story of real social needs or industrial requirements into the discussion. We also welcome work-in-progress papers.
