Call for Abstracts
The 1st Symposium on Research Methodologies in the Big Data Era (SRMBD 2016)
SRMBD 2016 organizing committee cordially invites you to participate in the 1st Symposium on Research Methodologies in the Big Data Era (SRMBD 2016), to be held on May 13 – May 15, 2016 in State College, PA, USA.
Research methodologies in both hard and soft sciences have co-evolved with the development of technologies. Recent advances in technologies including Big Data, Cyber Science, Internet of Things (IoT), immersive Virtual Reality, and Unmanned Vehicles have been not only impacting our everyday life but also changing research methodologies in academic communities. Prompted by the nature of new technologies, emerging research methodologies from different disciplines tend to share common characteristics in the process of designing experiments, collecting data, processing/analyzing data, and interpreting results.
The main objective of SRMBD 2016, an international symposium, is to provide a forum for transdisciplinary discussions on current status and future directions of research methodologies in various disciplines of social and natural sciences and engineering. Focused themes of SRMBD 2016 are (big) data analytics, computational methods, and experiment design associated with advanced technologies. There are three options of presentation: 15-min oral presentation, 5-min lightning talk, and poster presentation.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- (Big) Data analytics in research
- New data sources and innovative data collection methods
- Data storage/retrieval and data quality management
- Machine learning and data mining techniques
- Statistical methods for data analysis
- Data visualization and communication methods
- Computational methods in research
- Cloud computing techniques
- High performance computing techniques
- Algorithms and programming techniques for (big) data processing/analysis
- Simulation and modeling using (big) empirical data
- Experiment design in research
- Statistical methods for experiment design
- Experiments with advanced measuring devices
- Experiments in immersive virtual reality/augmented reality environments
- Experiments using user-generated content
- Crowdsourcing experiments
Authors are invited to submit abstracts of their original research papers. Abstract should be submitted through Submission Form. In the submission form, you can either fill out the submission form or upload postscript or pdf format of a word document provided here for abstract submission. Abstracts should be no more than 300 words. All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the organizing committee. At least one author of each accepted abstract is required to register for the symposium and give a presentation.
Abstract Submission Due: April 1, 2016
Acceptance Notification: April 10, 2016
Registration Due: April 15, 2016 (out-of-town participants) / April 30, 2016 (local participants)
One Best Student Paper Presentation award and one Best Student Poster award will be granted at SRMBD 2016. To be considered as potential awardees, the first author should declare the intention of participating in Student Paper Presentation/Poster Competition. The first author of the best student paper presentation and the best student poster must be a full-time student.
The program of SRMBD 2016 will consist of 1) keynote speeches, 2) oral presentation sessions with focused themes on (big) data analytics, computational methods, and experiment design, respectively, 3) a poster session, 4) tutorial sessions, 5) a career development session, and 6) networking events.
