3rd International Conference on Internet of Things, Big Data and Security
Funchal, Madeira / Portugal
March 19 - 21, 2018

Submission Extended Deadline: October 30, 2017

Dear Colleagues:
We cordially invite you to share your latest research results at the 2018 IoTBDS Conference.
Due to many requests, the regular papers submission deadline of this conference has been extended


The internet of things (IoT) is a platform that allows a network of devices (sensors, smart meters, etc.) to communicate, analyze data and process information collaboratively in the service of individuals or organizations. The IoT network can generate large amounts of data in a variety of formats and using different protocols which can be stored and processed in the cloud. The conference looks to address the issues surrounding IoT devices, their interconnectedness and services they may offer, including efficient, effective and secure analysis of the data IoT produces using machine learning and other advanced techniques, models and tools, and issues of security, privacy and trust that will emerge as IoT technologies mature and become part of our everyday

Big Data (BD) has core values of volume, velocity, variety and veracity. After collecting much data from IoT, BD can be jointly used with machine learning, AI, statistical and other advanced techniques, models and methods, which can create values for people and organizations adopting it, since forecasting, deep analysis and analytics can help identify weaknesses and make improvements based on different analysis. Maintaining a high level of security and privacy for data in IoT are crucial and we welcome recommendations, solutions, demonstrations and best practices for all forms of security and privacy for IoT and BD.

Conference Areas:

1 - Big Data Research
2 - Emerging Services and Analytics
3 - Internet of Things (IoT) Fundamentals
4 - Internet of Things (IoT) Applications
5 - Big Data for Multi-discipline Services
6 - Security, Privacy and Trust - IoT Technologies

All papers presented at the congress venue will also be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library.
Proceedings will be submitted for indexation by: DBLP, Thomson-Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, EI and SCOPUS

A short list of presented papers will be selected and their revised and extended versions will be published
in the *Special Issue of Journal of Grid Computing (JGC)*.
Applied Soft Computing fast track
Other special issues in the high quality journals like FGCS are also being discussed.
