Big data and smart computing are emerging research fields that have recently drawn much attention from computer science and information technology as well as from social sciences and other disciplines.The goal of the IEEE International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp), initiated by KIISE (Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers), 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.Following the successes of the previous BigComp conferences in Bangkok, Thailand (2014), Jeju, Korea (2015), Hong Kong, China (2016), Jeju, Korea (2017), the 2018 IEEE International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (IEEE BigComp 2018) will be held in January 15-17, 2018, Shanghai, China.The conference is co-sponsored by IEEE and KIISE. IEEE BigComp 2018 invites authors to submit original research papers and original work-in-progress reports on big data and smart computing.
