Big Data and SDN/NDV Summit

Big Data and SDN/NDV Summit first started in 2013 with the goal of sharing and discussing topics in big data research and industry advancements. In the past four years, this event has been financially supported by IEEE Big Data Initiative, IEEE Software Defined Networks, TechMahindra, Sunsang, Huawei, InfoBeyond, HP enterprise, EMC, Teradata, Exar, etc. The summit investigates Big Data-inspired computing, networks, systems, machine learning, Cybersecurity, and applications.

IEEE Communications Society recently held a series of 5G Summits in North America. The First IEEE 5G Princeton Summit was held at Princeton University on Tuesday, May 26, 2015. It was the first one in the series. Princeton 5G summit was followed by Toronto 5G Summit on November 14, 2015 and Silicon Valley 5G Summit on November 16, 2015. There are now two upcoming 5G summits being planned in collaboration with local chapters, namely Patna 5G Summit scheduled to take place on March 29, 2016 at IIT Patna, India (First one in Asia), followed by Aalborg 5G Summit (First one in Europe) scheduled to take place at Aalborg University on July 1, 2016.

Big Data 2017 will discuss several promising technologies that include Networking for Big Data, Wireless Big Data Analytics, Big Data Access Control and Security, Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence for Big Data. It will have Big Data sessions on the Big Data Real-time Learning, Intelligence, Cloud, Forensics, Semantics, and other topics.

In addition, SDN/NFV is a part of the discussion of the Summit that will cover SDN/NFV topics such as practical SDN/NFV service scenarios, its market demand and business model, and other relevant issues. Upon the consideration of the business, the summit will further discuss the SND/NFV agile and autonomous networks for the new business in enterprises and other new markets towards the commercial success.

The speakers are invited from Huawei, ZTE, AT&T, Microsoft, China Mobile, and other industrial giants in the Big Data and SDN/NFV areas.
