The 4th International Conference on Big Data Innovations and 
Applications (Innovate-Data 2018)

06-08 August 2018, Barcelona, Spain
Big data has become a key asset in modern societies, economies, and 
governmental organizations. Big data encompasses various kinds of 
complex and large scale information that are beyond the processing 
capabilities of conventional software and databases. The increasing 
volume and velocity of the data, captured by business organizations, web 
repositories, social media, data centres, cloud and IoT, have resulted 
in the exponential growth of big data. Big data provides a key basis for 
innovations in various domains and applications. It can benefit data 
managers, developers, companies and various kinds of organizations to 
carry out useful analysis of data pattern and trends, make intelligent 
decisions, and solve complex problems that can help societies and 
economies and speed up innovations. The aim of the Innovate-Data 
conference is to promote the state of the art in scientific and 
practical research of big data and to bring together researchers and 
practitioners from academia, industry, and public sector in an effort to 
present their research work and share research and development ideas.
