Call for Workshop Proposals 
2013 IEEE International Conference on Big Data 
October 6-9, 2013, Silicon Valley, USA
The Program Committees of the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Big Data
(IEEE BigData 2013) invite proposals for Workshops.  Selected workshops will
hold a central position within the larger Conference, which will bring
together top academic and industrial researchers from all over the world to
exchange cutting edge research ideas in Big Data research, development and
practice.  Within these fields, workshops at BigData form crucial focal
points for emerging communities and forums for the examination of new ideas.
Workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop,
forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the papers, and
guaranteeing a high quality worthy of the prestige and breadth of the
Conference.  All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the
Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, made
available at the Conference. 
The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing selected
papers (after their expansion and revision) into books or special journal
issues.  Workshops should cover at least a single session (6 regular
papers). The workshop organizers should ensure registration and presence of
  authors of accepted papers. 
Workshop Topics  
Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and initiatives
in Big Data.  The workshops should provide an informal and vibrant forum for
researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results and
practical development experiences in Big Data research, development and
practice.  Workshop topics may be narrow, e.g., Clouding Computing/Grid
Computing/Stream Computing for Big Data; Big Data stream Mining, Big Graph
Data Mining,   or  broad, e.g., Big Data Foundations , Big Data management,
Big Data Mining and Searching, Big Data Privacy and Security, Big Data
Application,  etc (Pls refer to the IEEE Big Data 2013
http://www.ischool.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2013/topics.htm for more
possible workshop topics). Prospective workshop organizers are encouraged to
contact workshop chairs for feedback.
