The goal of the 5th International Symposium on Big Data Research and Innovation (BigR&I-2018), co-located with the 6th International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud (FiCloud2018), is to provide an international forum for exchanging ideas and information from both Academia and Industry on current issues, challenges, research results, system developments, industrial use cases and practical experiences in the promising field of Big Data. This emerging research field recently draws much attention and interest in computer science, information technology and information security as well as in social sciences and other disciplines.
Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. They will be evaluated according to the relevance and originality of the work and to their ability to generate discussions between the participants.

The topics of interest for BigR&I-2018 include (but are not limited to):
•       Techniques and models, algorithms and systems for Big Data
•       Artificial Intelligence for Big Data and Data Science
•       Knowledge Engineering, Data Mining and Machine learning
•       NoSQL, NewSQL, Graph and new Databases for Big Data
•       Verification, Validation and Testing Big Data applications
•       Transaction properties and models for Big Data systems(ACID, CAP, BASE, etc)
•       Web search and information retrieval
•       Unstructured data management
•       Big Data analytics and Social Media
•       Parallel and distributed computing for Big Data
•       Hardware/software infrastructure for Big Data
•       Big Data storage, integration, services and virtualization
•       Security and privacy for Big Data
•       Ethical issues in Big Data
•       Cloud, IoT and Big Data
•       Big data and smart computing applications (health care, medicine, bioinformatics, finance, law, business, education, transportation, telecommunication, science, engineering, multimedia, ecosystem, etc.)
