Big data processing technologies, usually characterized by several V (Volume, Velocity, Variety/Variability), have become an important part of digital technologies. The scope of their use is rapidly expanding. The Special Interest Group on Big Data Application (SIG BD) was established in 2015 by Prof. Dr Svetlana Maltseva (President), Dr Albert Fleischmann (President-Elect), Dr Mikhail Komarov (treasurer) and Nikolay Kazantsev (secretary) to respond to these trends and capture the business-oriented impacts of big data analytics in business process management, data processing, and e-commerce. Following the extensive growth in members (up to 170), SIG BD was awarded outstanding SIG from 2018.

The main topics that the participants of SIG BD consider are the following:

  • determining trends in the use of big data technologies in various areas of economic activity
  • challenges and opportunities for the use of big data
  • new approaches, methods, algorithms, technologies for creating applications based on big data
  • integration of big data with other information technologies
  • other topics on the sources and ways of obtaining big data

2021 Pre-ICIS Workshop on Big Data Application for Decision Making will be held online on Dec 12, 2021

The Special Interest Group for Big Data Application (SIG BD) is proud to organize the 6th International Research Workshop on Big DataThe workshop will feature research papers that focus on problems that determine the current state and prospects for the use of Big Data in various fields, covering a range of topics, including Big Data-driven intelligence, decision making, big data generation (e.g. mobile sensors); Big Data architecture; Big Data hosting; Big data and Servitization; Big Data Visualization; UX/UI and Big Data. In addition, the workshop welcomes further relevant research.

The workshop will be held as a one-day meeting online, in conjunction with the ICIS 2021. Workshop participants will be charged a nominal registration fee.
