Smart Data aims to filter out the noise and produce 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 systems, 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 and further acquiring Smart Data.

The 2020 IEEE International Conference on Smart Data (SmartData-2020) is to promote community-wide discussion identifying the computational intelligence technologies and theories for harvesting Smart Data from Big Data. It will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for scientists, engineers and researchers to discuss and exchange novel ideas, results, experiences and work-in-process on all aspects of Smart Data.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
Track 1: Data Science and Its Foundations
  - Foundational Theories for Data Science
  - Theoretical Models for Big/Smart Data
  - Data inference for Big/Smart Data
  - Data Classification and Taxonomy
  - Data Metrics and Metrology

Track 2: Big/Smart Data Infrastructure and Systems
  - Cloud/Cluster/Fog/Edge Computing for Big Data
  - Parallel Computing for Big Data
  - Open Source Big Data Systems (e.g., including Hadoop, Spark, Flink and Storm)
  - System Architecture and Infrastructure of Big/Smart Data
  - Big/Smart Data Appliance

Track 3: Big/Smart Data Storage and Management
  - Big/Smart Data Collection, Transformation and Transmission
  - Big/Smart Data Integration, Cleaning and Storage
  - Data Query and Indexing Technologies
  - Distributed File/Database Systems
  - NewSQL/NoSQL for Big/Smart Data

Track 4: Big/Smart Data Processing and Analytics
  - Data Search, Mining and Drilling from Big/Smart Data
  - Data Mining/Machine Learning/Deep Learning for Big/Smart Data
  - In-Memory/Streaming/Graph-Based Computing for Big/Smart Data
