Few years ago, decisions were made by guesswork or painstakingly constructed models of reality, but nowadays this can be traced based on the data itself. Inetrnet of Things (IoT) is a broadly recognized era over the planet and this is ascribable to the growing enthusiasm of a new concept known as Big Data. This last is a new term which describes the process of collecting and analysing information of different form that is available publicly in enormous volumes. Dan Gardner had written an essay in “The Human Face of Big Data” in which he had depicted the existing information as an “ocean of data” created by recording every single information circulating on the web. Searches on Google, social networks, and sales web sites are sources which feed the ocean. In the light of this remarkable development, the data analysts and computer scientists had focused their interest on this treasure in order to benefit from it in enhancing daily life of individual users and commercial community. Consequently, new powerful and clever algorithms have been developed to analyse these data in order to extract valuable decisions. From that, Big Data can be simply defined as the ability of diving within ocean of data of different forms to extract hidden patterns and IOT represents the exchange of information from real-world devices with the Internet where sensing a complex environment, connectivity, scalability, and privacy are the major problems that IoT suffers from since its creation. At this stage, developing approaches and solutions to process those challenges has become a major issue in today's digital world for large research studies.

This special issue aims to collect and offer the scientific community new advancement of exploration, creation and development of solutions in internet of thigs (IoT) and big data challanges. We intended to discuss and share original research works and practical experiences by providing the latest and most innovative contributions in such complex and huge environments like Big Data and IoT domains.
