Introduction
Propelled by the rapid advancement of massive storage devices and delivery technologies, both the amount and the diversity of consumer-produced data on the web are growing at an incredible rate. Heterogeneous data such as videos, images, graphics and text from multiple sources embodies different feature spaces, which leads to poor accessibility without using efficient and effective technologies and solutions. Grid and cloud computing have been one of most popular research topics in recent year. These technologies are very important since they provide a reliable, fault-tolerant and scalable environment to perform specific tasks and access geographically distributed and heterogeneous data on demand.

Objective
This special issue will target the most advanced heterogeneous big data topics and advocates a promising combination of cloud computing and automatic analysis techniques to deal with the challenges of cross-media integration, multi-scale analysis and processing of heterogeneous big data.

Recommended Topics
Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Heterogeneous big data processing models and algorithms
  • Novel frameworks and approaches for heterogeneous big data management on Clouds
  • Multidimensional visualization systems of multimedia big data
  • Real time analytics on Cloud-hosted streaming of media data
  • Indexing and retrieval for large multimedia collections
  • Computer graphics
  • Multi-modal information retrieval for big data on Clouds
  • Computer vision & image processing
  • Cloud computing and storage for visual data
  • Machine learning for multimedia big data
  • Computational intelligence techniques for multi-modal data analysis


Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special theme issue on Heterogeneous Big Data Analytics and Cloud Computing on or before 30 June, 2017. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication. INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at http://www.igi-global.com/journals/guidelines-for-submission.aspx. All submitted papers will be reviewed on a double-blind, peer review basis. Papers must follow APA style for reference citations.

All submissions and inquiries should be directed to the attention of:
