Call For Papers: The 4th Norwegian Big Data Symposium - NOBIDS 2018

NOBIDS 2018 welcomes the submission of original research and application papers dealing with all aspects of Big Data and also the special theme "News Automation and Interactivity". The impact of Big Data and large-scale data infrastructures is now visible in science, business, government and civil society. Companies store more data than anyone could imagine just a few years back, and the proliferation of open linked data has made it possible to share well-defined data across organizational and geographical boundaries. Big data and data analytics are rapidly expanding research areas that are of great importance to both industry and academia. The focus is on scalable techniques for intelligent data production, collection, classification, storing, integration, analysis and visualization. Big Data is multi-disciplinary of nature and is closely linked to industrial innovation and value creation. NOBIDS 2018 focuses on Big Data applications and Big Data research from all disciplines. This year NOBIDS has a special focus on news automation and interactivity. News automation, in other words automated reporting of news or robot journalism, seen as a great help for journalists by some people while others think that it will replace journalists. While the debate goes on the technological advancements within the domain continues to excite the computer scientists and makes the journalists to prepare for the future of journalism. News automation deals with big amounts of news data in order to create individual stories automatically.  Interactivity focuses on the human computer interaction in the context of big data and robot journalism. Automatic generation of personalized news, chatbots and, any user feedback and interactivity based systems are of interest in this context. NOBIDS 2018 aims to bring researchers and industry practitioners together to exchange ideas, establish collaborations and share experiences within the special theme of news automation and interactivity.
