CFP: Real-Time Control in a Big Sensor Data Network

Call for Papers

A large number of important real-time applications depend on the analysis of big sensor data interfacing with the real world. These applications include military, medical, manufacturing, transportation, environmental planning, and disaster management systems. Many have been difficult to realize because of the problems involved with inputting big data from sensors directly into automated systems. Real-time control in a big sensor network has a strong impact on many of the previously mentioned applications especially in the context of processing, monitoring, and the immediate followup and detecting of complex events in many of these systems.

The main focus of this special issue will be on the new and existing real-time applications of big data sensor analytics to problems of global importance. This special issue will also become an international forum for researchers to highlight the most recent development and ideas in the field with a special emphasis on real-time applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Real-time analytics applications
  • Real-time visualization
  • Algorithms for map reduce
  • Data streaming
  • Sensor data storage
  • Sensor network mobility and social networks
  • Sensor cloud
  • Programmability tools
  • Security in big data
  • Data aggregation and protocols in large-scale networks
  • Big sensor platforms/architectures for real-time applications
  • Integration between sensor networks and business systems
  • Deployment, data aggregation, and energy optimization network protocols
  • Large-scale data sensor fusion
  • Machine learning on big data
