The 3rd IEEE International Conference on Smart Data

Exeter, England, UK, 21-23 June 2017

Sponsored by
IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC)


Smart Data aims to filter out the noise and produce the valuable data, which can be effectively used by enterprises and governments for planning, operation, monitoring, control, and intelligent decision making. Although unprecedentedly large amount of sensory data can be collected with the advancement of the Cyber Physical Social (CPS) systems recently, the key is to explore how Big Data can become Smart Data and offer intelligence. Advanced Big Data modeling and analytics are indispensable for discovering the underlying structure from retrieved data in order to acquire Smart Data. The goal of this conference is to promote community-wide discussion identifying the Computational Intelligence technologies and theories for harvesting Smart Data from Big Data.


The goal of The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Smart Data (SmartData-2017) is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers and researchers to discuss and exchange novel ideas, results, experiences and work-in-process on all aspects of Smart Data.
