Fourth International Workshop on Modeling and
Management of Big Data (MoBiD)

In conjunction with ER2015 (The 34th International Conference on Conceptual
Stockholm, Sweden, 19-22 October 2015.


Due to the enormous amount of data present and growing in the Web and other
data sources such as sensors and social networks, there has been an
increasing interest in incorporating these huge amounts of external and
unstructured data, normally referred to as “Big Data”, into traditional
applications. This necessity has made that traditional database systems and
processing need to evolve and accommodate to this new situation. We
consider that there are several key themes within the Big Data trend,
including (i) managing big data projects to successfully discover value;
(ii) developing a framework for the big data environment, to conceptualize
goals, tasks, and problem-solving methods that can be applied in different
domains;  (iii) exploring problem-solving methods for big data; (iv) using
cloud infrastructure for managing and processing large-scale external and
internal data; and (v) providing an easy-to-use but powerful services to
access/manage/analyze the big data in the cloud.

Therefore, this new era of Big Data and cloud environment requires
conceptualization and methods to effectively manage big data and accomplish
intended business goals. Thus, the objective of MoBiD’15 is to be an
international forum for exchanging ideas on the latest and best proposals
for modeling and managing big data in this new data-driven paradigm. Papers
focusing on novel applications and using conceptual modeling approaches for
any aspects of Big Data such as MapReduce, Hadoop and its ecosystems, Big
Data Analytics, social networking, security and privacy, data science
approaches, etc. are highly encouraged. The workshop will be a meeting
point for researchers and practitioners who are interested in the different
facets related to the use of the conceptual modeling approaches for the
development of next generation applications based on Big Data.

Submission Guidelines

Formatting instructions
MoBiD 2015 proceedings will be part of the ER2015 Workshop volume published
by Springer in the LNCS series. The authors must submit manuscripts using
the Springer-Verlag LNCS style for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. See
the page
for style files and details. The page limit for workshop papers is 10 pages.

The organizers will oversee a peer-review process for the submitted papers.
Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or having more than 10 pages
will not be reviewed and thus automatically rejected. The papers need to be
original and not submitted or accepted for publication in any other
workshop, conference, or journal. Submission to MoBiD 2015 will be
electronically only.
