Announcements (What is it?)

  1. Congratulations to Fahima and his coauthors for the acceptance of their paper entitled "A Security Framework for Scientific Workflow Provenance Access Control Policies" by IEEE Transactions on Services Computing. Download.
  2. Congratulations to Ishtiaq, Bai and Fahima for their best student paper award at IEEE Congress on Big Data. Ishtiaq Ahmed, Shiyong Lu, Changxin Bai, Fahima Amin Bhuyan, "Diagnosis Recommendation using Machine Learning Scientific Workflows".
  3. Prospective Ph.D. students: we received another 1M NSF project on big data in Aug 2017. We are looking for two excellent new PhD students. The best way to approach me is to look at http://www.dataview.org. You can sign up and then download the DATAVIEW code and see if you can introduce some functionality to the system. I love to see a demo of your projects to demonstate your skills in Javascipt/AJAX, JAVA and SQL. System coding is critical in our lab. Big data is on the No 1 of NSF's 10 BIG IDEA LIST.
  4. CFP: IEEE BigData Conference 2018. Due 8/8/2018.
  5. CFP: IEEE BigData Congress 2017. Due 1/19/2017.
  6. Congratulations to Aravind and Mahdi, who will join Allegheny and Lawrence Tech University, respectively, in Fall 2017 as tenture-track assistant professors there. Cheers!
  7. Congratulations to Andrey, who received a faculty position offer from Eastern Michigan University. He will become an assisstat professor there from Fall 2016.
  8. Congratulations to Andrey, who got the Michigan Conrad Award in 2016. This award is given to only one student who published one best paper in a previous year.
  9. Milestone of KDM (> 4000 users): The KDM tool (http://kdm.dataview.org) is already being used by more than 4000 registered users worldwide, representing over 200 universities and companies in more than 100 countries across 5 continents. These users include professors, graduate and undergraduate students, entrepreneurs, big data architects, and engineers that have used KDM to create over 10,000 hundreds of intelligent big data models in various domains, including healthcare, education, Internet of Things, stock market, retail and many others.
