Dr. Laura Haas, IBM Fellow and Director of the Accelerated Discovery Lab at IBM Research - Almaden will be the conference co-chair the 2015 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (29 October - 1 November 2015) in Santa Clara, CA.
Dr. Howard Ho, also of IBM Research - Almaden, will be a program co-chair for the conference.
The IEEE Big Data Conference provides "a leading forum for disseminating the latest research in Big Data Research, Development, and Applications. We solicit high-quality original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) in any aspect of Big Data with emphasis on 5Vs (Volume, Velocity, Variety, Value and Veracity) relevant to variety of data (scientific and engineering, social, sensor/IoT/IoE, and multimedia-audio, video, image, etc) that contribute to the Big Data challenges."
