Enormous amounts of data are already present and still rapidly growing due to data sources such as sensors and social networks. There has been an increasing interest in incorporating these huge amounts of external and unstructured data, normally referred to as â€śBig Dataâ€ť, into traditional applications. This necessity has made that traditional database systems and processing need to evolve and accommodate them. We view that several key themes with the Big Data trends include (i) managing Big Data projects to discover business values; (ii) developing an architecture for a Big Data environment to conceptualize goals, tasks, and problem-solving methods to apply to domains; (iii) exploring problem-solving methods for Big Data; (iv) using a cloud for managing large-scale external and internal data;
and (v) providing an easy-to-use but powerful services to access/manage/analyze the Big Data in the cloud.
Therefore, this new era of Big Data and cloud environment requires conceptualization and methods to effectively manage Big Data and accomplish intended business goals. Thus, the objective of MoBiDâ€™19 is to be an international forum for exchanging ideas on the latest and best proposals for modeling and managing Big Data in this new data-driven paradigm. Papers focusing on novel applications and using conceptual modeling approaches for any aspects of Big Data such as Hadoop and its ecosystems, Big Data Analytics, social networking, security
and privacy, hybrid cloud, Big Data warehousing, data science topics, etc. are highly encouraged. The workshop will be a forum for researchers and practitioners who are interested in the different facets related to the use of the conceptual modeling approaches for the development of next generation applications based on Big Data.
As it has been a tradition within the MoBiD workshop, we have a Special Issue
for the best papers. Hence, best papers will be invited to submit a revised and
extended version to the Special Issue of the Big Data Research Journal
(JCR Q1, IF 2.952).
A "Best Paper Award" Certificate will be conferred on the author(s) of a paper
presented at the workshop, selected by the Chairs based on scientific
significance, originality and outstanding technical quality of the paper, as
assessed also by the evaluations of the members of the Program Committee.
The 38th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2019) will occurs
in Salvador, the capital of the state of Bahia, in the Northeast region of
Brazil, in the period of November 4-7, 2019. Salvador was the first capital of
Brazil and is the 3rd largest city in the country. It is a very attractive
tourist destination, due to its history, culture and gastronomy, all strongly
influenced by the first African slaves and the portuguese culture. It has 25 km
of urban beaches and several not-to-miss historic venues, like Pelourinho, Farol
da Barra, Ilha de Itaparica, historical churches, museums, and CandomblĂ©
centers. It is also close to other touristic destinations in Bahia, like Morro
de SĂŁo Paulo, Praia do Forte and Boipeba.
The region time zone is the same as Brazil's capital, BrasĂlia, which is three
hours behind GMT. The climate is classified as temperate, with an average annual
temperature varying between 23Â° C (73Â° F) and 30Â° C (86Â° F), with relative
humidity ranging around 65-75%. Night temperatures usually drop to around 18Â° C
The location for ER-2019 is the Hotel Mercure Rio Vermelho, a wonderful,
paradise-like location, central and close to several social and gastronomic
places in the bohemian neighborhood of Rio Vermelho.
