3 conferences in Computer Science and 3 conferences in Big Data

3 scholarly conferences that focus on algorithms, programming languages, managing telecommunications software engineering, managing corporate information resources, and managing partnership-based IT operations:

  1. Advance International Conference on Telecommunications: http://www.iaria.org/conferences2015/AICT15.html
  2. IEEE International Conference on Software, Telecommunications and Computer Networks (SoftCOM) http://www.globaleventslist.elsevier.com/events/2015/09/international-conference-on-software-telecommunications-and-computer-networks-softcom/
  3. IEEE Global Communication Conference Exhibition & Industry Forum (GLOBECOM) http://globecom2014.ieee-globecom.org/

3 conferences that cover Big Data:

1. IEEE International Conference on BigData: http://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2014/programschedule.htm

A conference that provides student travel awards to help subsidize the cost, thanks to the National Science Foundation. Held in Washington DC in 2014. They also provide a doctoral symposium. Keynote speeches include Never-ending language learning; Smart Data – How you and I will exploit Big Data for personalized digital health and many other activities; and Addressing Human Bottlenecks in Big data. Reading the keynote speeches’ abstracts I found this quote to be true at my job in the past year “… the key bottlenecks lie with data analysis and data engineers, who are routinely asked to work with data that cannot possibly be loaded into tools for statistical analytics or visualization.” (IEEE, 2014). Another Keynote talks about an Artificial Intelligence learning machine NELL (Never-Ending Language Learner) that runs 24 hours per day learning to read the web and extracting knowledge and creating beliefs. It is starting to reason over its extracted knowledge. It recently learned that “inaccuracy is an event outcome” (NELL, 2015)

2. Data Lead: http://www.datalead2014.com/

Held in Paris, France in 2015 and Berkeley, California near October and November months. It is their second year of this annual conference. It is in partnership with the University of California (Berkeley) Hass School of Business. Their goal is to spark an international conversation on the application of big data on business processes and issues. There is a particular focus on issues revolving around finance and a marketing, though they cater to the sciences, education, government, etc. They see big data as an economic commodity.

3. IARIA International Conference on Data Analytics: http://www.iaria.org/conferences2015/DATAANALYTICS15.html

Fourth conference held by IARIA, in Nice, France for 2015, during the middle of the year. Topics in their conferences deal with: Fundamentals, mechanisms, and features, sentiment/opinion analytics, target analytics, big data, knowledge discovery, visualization, filtering data, relevant/redundant/obsolete analytics, predictive, trust in data, legal issues, cyber threats, etc. They have two biannual peer-reviewed journals since 2008 associated with this group: International Journal on Advances in Software & International Journal on Advances in Intelligent Systems. Other conferences from IARIA: SoftNet, InfoWare, NetWare, NexTech, DataSys, BioSciencesWorld, Infosys, and NexComm, all in Europe.
