International Conference on Advances in Big Data, Computing and Data Communication Systems (ICABCD 2018) is a premier conference in the soft computing and communication systems. ICABCD 2018 is to be held in Durban, South Africa, during 6-7 August 2018. The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from all over the world working on soft computing, big data technologies, data communication systems and computer security on a common platform so that they can present and discuss emerging ideas and trends in these highly challenging research fields. All accepted and registered papers 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.
IEEE Conference Number – #41997
