Call For Papers:

As computing systems become increasingly larger, more complex, distributed, and integrated, Big Data technologies and services are ever more vital. IEEE BigDataService 2021 provides an internationally leading forum for researchers and practitioners in academia and industry to exchange innovative ideas and share latest results, experiences and lessons learned in this crucial domain.

The conference will take place online on the 23rd-26th of August 2021, will be co-located with IEEE SOSE 2021, IEEE MobileCloud 2021 and IEEE DAPPS 2021, and IEEE AITest 2021, and will consist of a main track and special tracks.

The conference also welcomes workshop proposals – with a deadline on March 1st 2021 and seeks the submission of high-quality papers limited to up to 10 pages (IEEE format) in length. All accepted papers will be included in the proceedings. Selected papers will be invited for extension and published in journals (SCI-Index).

Presentation Guideline:

A. Presentations

Every paper will be presented live followed by live questions-and-answers from the audience. The following table summarises the lengths of presentations according to the paper types.

Paper type Presentation Length
Short Paper 15 - 30 minutes (please see technical program of the conference)
Regular Paper 30 minutes
Invited Paper 45 minutes
Keynote 60 minutes

Please note that for all types of presentations, the presentation lengths include the time for questions and answers. The authors are suggested to prepare slides for the presentation and share the screen to show the slides in the Zoom meeting during the session.


(1) About No-Show: IEEE’s policy is that author’s must participate in the conference and present the work in person in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings. No-show at the presentation will be regarded as not participated in the conference, thus the paper will be removed from the conference proceedings in the IEEE’s Digital Library Xplore.

(2) About Internet Connectivity: To prevent the internet connection problem to hamper the presentations, an author can send us a link to a recorded presentation hosted externally on the internet. In unexpected case of broken internet connection, the recorded presentation will be played. This must NOT be used as planned no-show at presentation.

(3) Test the connection: The authors are strongly encouraged to join the Zoom rooms on Day 0 (22nd August) to test the internet connection. More information will be posted on Moodle website.

B. Sessions
There are two types of sessions in the congress: Plenary sessions and Parallel sessions.

  • Plenary session are to be participated by all participants of all conferences/workshops, etc. There will be no other event taking place at the same time. Plenary Keynotes, Opening Session, Planning meeting, Plenary Panels, Closing Session, and Best Paper Awards are plenary sessions.

  • Parallel sessions are running in parallel with some other sessions/events. Participants can join any of the parallel sessions freely at any time.


(1) Session Chairs and Helpers: Each session of the congress will have a session chair and at least one student volunteer to help the running of the session. The session chair should control the running of the session, ensuring the presentations were smoothly and timely, and questions are raised and answered in an orderly way.

(2) Recording of Sessions: All sessions will be recorded and the recorded presentations will be made available to the general public. The student helpers will take charge of the recording.

C. Online Platform
The Online platform consists of two parts: A Moodle website and Zoom rooms.

  • Moodle Website: It is the virtual space of the congress, which contains all information (or links to the information) required to participate in the congress. For example, the schedule of all events of the conferences can be found on the virtual space of Moodle website. It also contains the links to the Zoom rooms for the live presentations.

  • Zoom rooms: The conference sessions will be on the Zoom platform. In particular, each conference will have a dedicated Zoom room for the sessions of that conference. There are also two additional dedicated Zoom room(s) for informal meet-ups with the conference participants. Please joint the Zoom Room a few minutes earlier because the sessions will start on time. All the plenary sessions will in a dedicated Zoom room, too.


(1) Access to Moodle Website: The access to the Moodle website will only be available to those register to the conference. An invitation to join the Moodle website will be sent to all registered participants when it is ready. Once you receive the invitation, please react immediately following the instruction given in the invitation.

(2) Access to Zoom rooms: Links to the Zoom Rooms can be find in many different places on this virtual space (i.e. the Moodle website) as hyperlinks and you can access a room via a click on the hyperlink. Joining a Zoom room through these links will not require password and meeting IDs.

D. Contacts
If you have any queries, please feel free to contact me and/or the Chair of Online Event Dr. Bedour Alshaigy by email at and respectively.

Paper Submission & Publication:

Papers must be written in English. All papers must be prepared in the IEEE double column proceedings format. Please see the following link for details: Research papers are limited to 8 pages, survey papers are limited to 10 pages, and experience/industry papers are limited to 6 pages. Authors must submit their papers at the Easychair platform. Authors must submit their papers at: Submit paper

All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (EI‐Index) and included in IEEE Digital Library. For publication, at least one author is required to register at the full rate and present the paper at the conference for the paper to be included in the final technical program and the IEEE Digital Library. Selected papers will be invited for extension and published in journals (SCI-Index).

IEEE Big Data Service - Workshops and Tutorials

Workshop Proposals

Workshop proposals should include a 1-2 page summary of the topic and the names and affiliations of 3-4 chairs and program committee members who have made a commitment to participate, where it should be stated clearly the primary contact person to whom correspondence should be directed. A mix of industry and academic panel members are recommended.

In the page summary the organizers should present clearly:

  • The motivation of the workshop and its relatedness to the topics of the conference
  • The specific topics covered and possible application areas
  • The reviewing process, and the expected number of participants
  • If the same workshop has been organized before and why its continuation is needed

Workshop proposals must be sent by email to the PC Chairs by November 8th.

Tutorial Proposals

Tutorial proposals should include a 1-2 page summary of the topic and the names, affiliations and short cvs of the presenters. They should clearly state the primary contact person to whom correspondence should be directed and the importance and relevance of the tutorial to the conference. An estimated duration must also be provided and the expected audience. Finally, any special equipment required for the presentation (besides a laptop and a projector that will be available anyway) must be noticed in advance.
