Call For Workshop Proposals

Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT) and Le Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) are proud to announce their 2nd Joint Big Data Workshop to be held on April 17-19, 2017 in Tehran. The workshop aspires to provide an international forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to present and discuss their latest research findings in this field and to identify emerging future challenges. The workshop is devoted to recent methods and algorithms for analyzing big data, introducing the main architectures and technologies developed for big data, as well as real-world problems and applications of big data.

Workshop proposals that embody novel research findings or practical sessions that provide insight on addressing significant challenges are solicited in the scope of the event.

Workshops must be presented in English. For those interested to present their work in Persian, please contact the organizing committee. Proposals will only be accepted by filling the proposal forms and sending them to the following email address: bigdata@aut.ac.ir

Workshop proposal form is available HERE .
