Special Issues
Special Issue on Big Data Analytics for Business Intelligence
Submission Date: 2017-04-30

With new technologies, such as internet of things, mobile technologies, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data in different formats much faster than before. Big data, characterized with high volume, variety and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments, organizations, communities to individual decision making. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction/prescription. It also poses great challenges in terms of data, process, analytical modeling and management for organizations to turn big data into big insight. The overall aim of this special issue is to collect state-of-the-art research findings on the latest development, up-to-date issues, and challenges in the field of big data analytics for business intelligence. Proposed submissions should be original, unpublished, and novel in-depth research that makes significant methodological or application contributions. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following: Innovative methods for big data analytics Techniques for mining unstructured, spatial-temporal, streaming and/or multimedia data Machine learning from big data Search and optimization for big data Parallel, accelerated, and distributed big data analytics Value and performance of big data analytics Data visualization Real-world applications of big data analytics, such as default detection, cybercrime, e-commerce, ehealth etc. Improving forecasting models using big data analytics Security and privacy in big data era Online community and big data Submission format and Guidelines Submitted papers must be written in good English and describe original research which has not been published nor is currently under review by other journals or conferences. Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contribution to research and development of big data analytics for business intelligence, as well as their suitability and quality in terms of both technical contributions and written presentation. Significant extension of papers published in related conferences is encouraged. Such submissions should be clearly identified by the authors the amount of additional and different materials. The information should be clearly indicated in the manuscript. The Guest Editors will check the suitability and scope of all submissions before sending out for peer review. Author guidelines for preparation of manuscripts can be found at Authors should select article type name of "SI: BigData Analytics" during the submission process.
