Welcome to WBDC 2020


2020 International Workshop on Big Data and Computing (WBDC 2020) will be held at the Newcastle University, in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom on August 7-9, 2020.

We sincerely invite you to participate in 2020 International Workshop on Big Data and Computing (WBDC 2020).

In recent years, “Big Data” has become a new ubiquitous term. Big data and computing are emerging research fields that have recently drawn much attention from computer science and information technology as well as from social sciences and other disciplines. It has also become a ubiquitous term in understanding and solving complex problems in different disciplinary fields such as engineering, applied mathematics, medicine, computational biology, healthcare, social networks, finance, business, government, education, transportation and telecommunications.

WBDC 2020 is a showcase of next generation technologies and techniques from the globe of big data and computing, a chance to explore and find out the practical and successful implementation of big data computing in driving forward your profession for a better future. The aim of WBDC 2020 is to present the latest research and results of scientists related to big data and computing topics. This conference provides opportunities for the different areas delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration. The conference topics are big data science, infrastructure and platforms, applications, trends and challenges as well as visualisation of big data.

Authors are invited to contribute original research papers which can be submitted electronically via the submission system below.

WBDC is organized by HKSRA.

Oral Presentation Guideline

15 mins (including 2-3 mins Q&A) 

The main points to pay attention to in delivery are the quality of your voice, your rapport with the audience, use of notes and use of visual aids. Voice quality involves attention to volume, speed and fluency, clarity and pronunciation. The quality of your voice in a presentation will improve dramatically if you are able to practise beforehand in a room similar to the one you will be presenting in. 

Rapport with the audience involves attention to eye contact, sensitivity to how the audience is responding to your talk and what you look like from the point of view of the audience. These can be improved by practising in front of one or two friends or video-taping your rehearsal.

Poster Presentation Guideline

Poster Size: A0

Posters are a key component of communicating your science and an important element in a successful scientific career. Posters, while delivering the same high-quality science, offer a different medium from either oral presentations or published papers, and should be treated accordingly. Posters should be considered a snapshot of your work intended to engage colleagues in a dialogue about the work, or, if you are not present, to be a summary that will encourage the reader to want to learn more. 

The poster is usually a mixture of a brief text mixed with tables, graphs, pictures, and other presentation formats. At a conference, the researcher stands by the poster display while other participants can come and view the presentation and interact with the author.
