CFP: 3rd International Workshop on Advanced Data Systems Management, Engineering, and Analytics (MegaData): where the Edge meets the Cloud

On behalf of the organizers, I sincerely invite you to consider submitting the results of your recent research to The Third International Workshop on Advanced Data Systems Management, Engineering, and Analytics (MegaData), which will be held in conjunction with the 23rd  IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGRID2023).

The MegaData objective is to bring together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in sharing and presenting their perspectives on the effective management of big data systems. The focus of the workshop is on a novel and practical, systems-oriented work, where MegaData, whose moto this year is “MegaData: where the Edge meets the Cloud”, offers an opportunity to showcase the latest advances in this area and discuss and identify future directions and challenges in management and engineering of big data systems.

MegaData covers the area of Big Data operations (management, engineering, and analytics) within Cloud and Edge computing models. It aims to report on the advances and trends in Big Data deployment architectures from both the infrastructure and application levels. Papers presenting recent results, research issues, practical applications, case studies, and industrial implementations are welcome.

Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:

  • Resource management and scheduling mechanisms for data systems
  • Auto Scaling and elastic scaling approaches and mechanisms
  • Data governance and privacy of “data in motion” and “data at rest” over edge/cloud
  • Emerging Data deployment models in IoT, IoT-to-Cloud, Edge/fog
  • Federated Learning and edge intelligence for big data systems
  • Advances data storage models, including object stores and key-value stores
  • Techniques for data integrity, availability, reliability, and fault tolerance
  • Big Data workflows (data management, data wrangling, automated workflows)
  • Data pipeline (data lake to analytics, new data stream architectures, edge/fog, cloud enabled solutions)
  • High-performance Data Analytics applications
  • Adaptive offloading techniques among Fog, Edge, and Cloud Computing

Important dates

  • Submission open: December 1st, 2022
  • Paper submission Deadline: January 15th, 2023
  • Acceptance notification: February 10th, 2023
  • Camera-ready submission: March 17th, 2023
  • Conference Dates: May 1st, 2023

We invite original research papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Submitted papers should be no longer than 8 pages (including references and appendices) in two-column IEEE template format. Papers need to be submitted through the EasyChair submission portal.

Best papers presented at the workshop will be selected, and the corresponding authors will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for possible publications in: Special Issue on Emerging Topics in Big Data and Edge Intelligence on Springer Cluster Computing (IF 2.3)

Submit the paper and meet our team in Bangalore, India in May, 2023!

With best wishes,

MegaData organizers – Yaser Jararweh, Feras M. Awaysheh, Moath Jarrah, Anastasija Nikiforova, Sadi Alawadi

First International Electronic Governance with Emerging Technologies Conference (EGETC)

As the general co-chair of the First International Conference in Electronic Governance with Emerging Technologies (EGETC-2022), I sincerely invite you to consider your participation as authors and presenters or the attendees in this event.

Over the last decade, the importance of emerging technologies in government and public administrations has grown significantly. The growing demand for services that better meet changing user expectations for responsiveness and personalization, coupled with higher expectations of the role of government in the digital age, calls for a technologically mature public sector. There are many new emerging technologies serving as enablers to new forms of governance and novel applications in traditional governance functions, which role has been witnessed across various domains, including healthcare, medicine, education, tourism, and industry etc.. 

The aim of the First International Conference in Electronic Governance with Emerging Technologies (EGETC-2022) is to provide a forum for academics, scholars, and practitioners from academia and industry to share and exchange the recent developments in the domain of eGovernment and governance of digital organizations to shed light on the emerging research trends and their applications. 

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Intelligent systems for coordination in crisis emergency management
  • Distributed ledgers and Blockchains: governance, decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO)
  • Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data management for Public Sector
  • Privacy, security and legal Informatics – AI and Law
  • Open Data, Open Government Data: transparency, trust, public participation, co-creation and Open Innovation
  • Digital transformation and Society 5.0
  • Linked Data, Linked Open Data (LOD)
  • Semantic E-government applications
  • Public Sector Knowledge Representation
  • Decision Support Systems (DSS) in Digital Governance
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Cloud Computing
  • Bots, Automation agents, Self-learning systems 
  • Cryptocurrencies and incentive mechanism design
  • Multimedia and multilingual systems

It is particularly important that, in order to ensure the widest possible participation of communities, despite the availability of funding, the conference does not foresee any charges. I.e. both authors and presenters, and attendees/ listeners are welcome without registration fees.

In addition to the great team of organizers and members of the program committee, which has a rich list of outstanding experts, participants of this event will have an opportunity to enjoy the keynote speeches by Prof. Marijn Janssen – Full Professor in ICT & Governance at TU Delft, Netherlands, Dr. B K Murthy, CEO – Innovation and Technology Foundation, IIT Bhilai, Prof. Luis Martinez – Full Professor, University of Jaén, Jaén Spain. More information on their talk will follow…

Accepted papers presented at the EGETC2022 will be published in the proceeding published by Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (approval pending…). A short list of best papers will be invited for a post-conference publication in Government Information Quarterly (GIQ), Elsevier, Q1, Cite Score: 11.6, Impact Factor: 7.279 and Technological Forecasting and Social Change, An International Journal, Elsevier, Q1, Cite Score: 12.1, Impact Factor: 8.593.

If you are interested in submitting your paper, add to your calendar the submission date – May 30, while the event will take place during September 12-14, 2022.

Due to the unpredictability of the current situation in the light of pandemic, we expect to have a hybrid event, i.e. both online and on-site participation will be possible. For the later mode, we will be very glad to meet participants, who will be able to attend the event physically, in peaceful and spectacular city of Tamaulipas, Mexico in mid-September, 2022. Hope to meet you there!!!
