The submission deadline has been extended to Aug 7, 2013.

The International Workshop on Intelligent Agents for Big Data (IABD-13) will be Held in conjunction with The IEEE International Conference on Big Data 2013 (IEEE BigData 2013).


It has been a long history that intelligent agent technologies facilitate solutions to data relevant issues such as data management, data mining, information extraction, search, and integration. Agent-based models provide an expedient framework for predicting expansion and evolution of data while distributed agent architectures make it possible to manage heterogeneous data resources. On the other hand, with the input of more valuable data, intelligent agents ’ capabilities and have been significantly enhanced. By exploiting the growing e-market, a recommender agent provides desirable service to both purchasers and sellers, for instance.

The emergence of Bigdata poses a series of challenges as well as prospects to both researchers and practitioners in relevant communities such as intelligent agents, data management, data mining/machine learning, social computing, information search and extraction, etc. The aim of IABD workshop is to promote discussions and exchanges of ideas on both theories and applications of the synergy between intelligent agents and Bigdata research, particularly on agents-based solutions to Bigdata.

Topics of Interest

The IABD workshop aims to facilitate discussions on a number of challenging topics on agents-based solutions to Bigdata. In particular, we encourage submissions on, but not limited to:

  • Formal agent-based framework for Bigdata management
  • Agent-based information extraction, recommendation techniques with Bigdata
  • Agent-based simulation models for data visualization, prediction and so on
  • Agent-mediated parallel/distributed data management/mining
  • Reasoning and learning with Bigdata
  • Emergent Bigdata issues for intelligent agents
