Special Session on Big Data Analytics and Stream Data Mining (BDASD2017)

A Special Session co-located with the 23rd Int. Symposium on Methodologies for Intelligent Systems (ISMIS 2017) - Warsaw, Poland, June 26-29, 2017


In the world of today, modern information systems are able to collect very large data with inherent and increasing complex structure and dimensionality. Furthermore, new data sources often provide various heterogeneous representations and also time changing characteristics with respect to the data. This is particular visible in the rapidly developing field of Big Data Analytics. Although machine learning and data mining researchers had already studied mining massive and complex data, there are significant differences between earlier efforts and the current trends opening up new problems and challenges. Indeed, Big Data Analytics opens up new research problems which were only considered within a limited range. Applications of Big Data Analytics may also influence human behavior and society in a significantly higher degree than before – which also requires new types of research. Furthermore, new Big Data challenges are particularly relevant in emerging applications where data are continuously generated at a high rate in the form of data streams, whose characteristics may also change with time (concept drifting data). Compared to static, standard environments, processing data streams implies new computational challenges and requirements for algorithms and their ability to adapt to such dynamic and complex contexts.

In order to address these new research challenges concerning both the analysis of Big Data and mining data streams, respectively, we organize a special session – BDASD - co-located with the ISMIS conference. We aim to gather researchers from all over the world coming from different communities being interested in the aforementioned issues, as well as to present algorithmic foundations and application aspects of analyzing these new types of data.
