The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Inter-disciplinary research plays a vital role in the development of research. There are common grounds on the methodologies and validation in different disciplines. There is also a growing interest in inter-disciplinary research, since it often requires teams of different experts to work and solve the problems together. Therefore, it makes sense if experts of different areas should have a platform to discuss and work together. We aim to develop a workshop/special session to allow participants of IoTBDS, COMPLEXIS and FEMIB conferences to present their work, share about their findings and have the opportunities to collaborate further. Relevant topics related to IoTBDS, COMPLEXIS and FEMIB are always welcome.

Big Data management is of outmost interest nowadays due to the large amount of data being generated every day in different domains ranging from user generated data to applications in different domains such as banking, transport, e-commerce and heath care among others. Many of these data is generated by different devices such as smart phones, sensors, tablets … Frameworks for analyzing, visualizing and consuming these data must take into account the distributed, noisy and probably incomplete nature of the data. Application developers use these frameworks in order to create new applications but also with the underlying infrastructure for the application deployment, dimensioning and tuning. This workshop goal is to bring together researchers workin on big data infrastructures.
