The International Conference on Advances in Big Data, Computing and Data Communication Systems (icABCD 2018) is aimed to be an annual conference for researchers, academicians and industry persons in the field of Computer Science, Information Systems & Communication Technologies, Engineering and related fields. icABCD 2018 will be organised in Durban, South Africa with support from the Society of Information Technologists and Entrepreneurs (Mauritius) and IEEE South Africa Section on 6-7 August 2018. We hope that this conference will attract a large number of delegates from all over the world and will consist of very high quality technical sessions.

This 2-day conference will include invited keynotes and oral presentations. icABCD 2018 will provide a forum for researchers from both academia and industry to exchange the latest innovations and research advancements in big data, soft computing, cloud computing, networking and computer security.

Authors are invited to contribute original research papers which can be submitted electronically via the conference website. The papers accepted after the review and presented in the conference will be submitted for potential inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital Library, provided they meet quality standards. All papers will be double-blind reviewed by at least two independent reviewers.

We look forward to welcoming you for ICABCD 2018 in Durban, South Africa.
