[Dbworld] CfP - Journal of Web Engineering - Special Issue in Engineering Data Visualization in RIAs.

Dear colleagues, 


due to some requests, we extended the submission deadline of the Special Issue of the Journal of Web Engineering (JCR indexed) in Engineering Data Visualization in Rich Internet Applications: Extension Paper submission - December 18th, 2014


Engineering Data Visualization in Rich Internet Applications

Special Issue of the Journal of Web Engineering (JCR indexed)


Call for Articles

During the last years, the amount of data on the Internet has been increased dramatically. The appearance of social networks together with the easy connection of devices to the Internet (Internet of Things, Smart Cities) are favoring the presence of an immense amount of data available for citizens, companies and public organizations. Widely adopted approaches such as big data, open data, linked data, analytics and others are challenging the way in which these data are used. They represent a heterogeneous set of solutions, characterized by the common goal of offering new capabilities to users to query, understand and analyze data to make better decisions.

With no doubt, Data Visualization is the main pillar for understanding the information coming from Business Intelligence/Analytics based systems. However, building visualizations on the Internet is not an easy task. This is due to the variety of current data sources (query languages, APIs, etc.,) together with the plethora of different devices for visualization, the wide range of user profiles, the quick changing rendering technologies and the ultimate practices coming from social applications for tagging information. These issues are making data visualization on the Web even more challenging.

Data Visualization on the Web mainly involves issues at two different levels: technical and social. From the technical point of view, the visualization must be rendered in different platforms and devices, connected to different and heterogeneous data sources and it also should make use of the best rendering technologies available at a given moment. Moreover, and from an engineering point of view, it should be desirable for the visualizations to be reusable and defined as much independent as possible from all these technology issues, leading to a self-service data visualization. From the social point of view, the information should be shown in different ways attending to the user changing context (user profile, company interests, colleague interests, market tendencies, social tendencies, etc). Moreover, some kind of interactions for the user should be desirable in order to change the dimension of the data shown (multidimensional data visualization).

The provision of all these features can be favored by the use of Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) that combine the richness of desktop computing with the appeal of distributed processing. RIAs provide a better separation between presentation and content, fostering the development of sophisticated user interfaces and powerful interaction tools leading to better usability and personalization. These presentation features together with others such as online and offline usage, data storage and processing capabilities at client side, asynchronous communications and lower bandwidth consumption have made RIAs and ideal technology for visualizing data on the Web. This is the reason why many different Web Engineering methodologies have been extended to include RIA concepts.

This special issue aims at discussing the state-of-the-art, open problems and future directions in Engineering Data Visualizations in Rich Internet Applications. Original contributions (previously unpublished and not currently under review) are solicited in areas including (but not limited to) the following:


·  Model Driven Development principles applied to Rich Data Visualization

·  Methodological Web approaches for Data Visualization design in RIAs

·  Tool support for the lifecycle of RIAs for Data Visualization

·  Experiences of using Rich Internet Applications for Data Visualization

·  Future trends in Web Data Visualization using RIAs 

Submission format and procedure

This open call for papers solicits high-quality papers on the mentioned topics to appear in a Special Issue of the JCR indexed Journal of Web Engineering on Data Visualization in Rich Internet Applications. All submissions will be rigorously double blind-reviewed. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated on originality, clarity and quality.

All submissions must be in English, formatted according to the guidelines of Journal of Web Engineering (JWE), and submitted via the EasyChair systemhttps://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=1riavis in PDF format.

Databases are present in almost every IT system and collect data describing many areas of human life and
activity. Collecting and processing an increasing number of data makes it necessary to use computer
architectures and data structures providing high performance and high availability of database
systems. Moreover, a vast majority of data require appropriate processing and searching algorithms in
order to make the data readable for users and to discover the knowledge that is hidden inside the data.

Beyond Databases, Architectures and Structures (BDAS) is a series of conferences that intends to give the
state-of-the-art of the research that satisfies the needs of modern, widely understood database
systems, architectures, models, structures, and algorithms focused on processing various types of
data. The aim of the conference is to reflect the most recent developments of databases and allied

[Dbworld] AsterixDB: Better than Hadoop? Interview with Mike Carey

Dear Colleagues,
hope you are well.

I though you could be interested in this.

Mike Carey and his colleagues have been working on a new data management system for Big Data called AsterixDB.

The AsterixDB Big Data Management System (BDMS) is the result of approximately four years of R&D involving
researchers at UC Irvine, UC Riverside, and Oracle Labs. The AsterixDB code base currently consists of
over 250K lines of Java code that has been co-developed by project staff and students at UCI and UCR.

The AsterixDB project has been supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation as well as by several
generous industrial gifts.

Mike Carey: To distinguish AsterixDB from current Big Data analytics platforms Ð which query but donÕt
store or manage Big Data Ð we like to classify AsterixDB as being a Big Data Management System (BDMS, with
an emphasis on the M)

[Dbworld] CFP: Special Issue, International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks


International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks (IJDSN)

Special Issue on Advanced Big Data Management and Analytics for Ubiquitous Sensors

The convergence of pervasive sensing with location-aware and social
media technologies, along with infrastructure-based sensors, will lead
to the production and collection of "big data" in many areas such as
transportation, healthcare, and energy. The data may be structured or
unstructured, ranging from GPS trajectories to text, video, still
images, and others. This opens up new challenges and opportunities to
address the key aspects of sensor-based big data, namely, volume,
velocity, variety, and veracity.

This special issue aims to foster the dissemination of knowledge for
advanced issues in big data management and analytics for ubiquitous
sensors. It will also include a number of related topics such as
distributed/parallel processing of streaming data, privacy protection
and security issues in sensor-based big data, and data fusion
techniques for distributed big data. This special issue will be an
open international forum for researchers to summarize their latest
research results. Potential topics include but not limited to:

- Distributed/parallel processing for sensor-based, streaming big data
- Sensor-based big data management
- Data fusion for sensor-based, distributed big data
- Advanced analysis and mining techniques for sensor-based big data
- Efficient indexing and content retrieval for sensor-based big data
- Programming models for sensor-based big data processing
- Privacy and security for sensor-based big data
- Advanced location techniques for sensor-based big data
- Open issues in management and analysis of sensor-based big data
