MDPI Data Journal, special issue – Paper Submission Opening

After the success of five international workshops co-located at IEEE Big Data, the MDPI Data Journal is dedicating a special issue to real-time stream analytics, stream mining, CER/CEP and stream data management in big data.

Data (ISSN 2306-5729) is a peer-reviewed open-access journal on data in science, with the aim of enhancing data transparency and reusability. The journal is now included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index – ESCI (Web of Science), Scopus, and Inspec (IET).

Data has received its first CiteScore 2.1, ranking Q2 in the Scopus category “Information Systems and Management” (Real-time CiteScore 3.2 based on CiteScoreTracker 2020).

We invite researchers in this field to submit papers about scalable online learning, incremental learning on stream processing infrastructures, complex event processing, and composite event recognition. We also encourage submissions on data stream management, data architecture using stream processing, and on Internet of Things (IoT) data streaming. Additionally, we appreciate submissions that deal with the usage of stream processing in new innovative architectures.
