Big data and smart computing are emerging research fields that have been gaining attention from diverse disciplines, including computer science, information technology, and social sciences. The goal of the International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp) is to provide an international forum for exchanging ideas and information on current studies, challenges, research results, system developments, and practical experiences among researchers, developers, and users from academia, business, and industry.
