International Workshop on Big Data and Machine Learning in Ecosystems (BD-ML).

To be held at EAI ICTCC 2021.

Workshop Chair
Assoc. Prof. Thanh Do Van


BD-ML addresses work at the interface between dimensional reduction techniques, machine learning and data mining methods, and econometric techniques to analysis time-series large datasets and the application of state-of-the art techniques and methods in implementing forecasts, classifications, or big data analysis in the fields of economics, finance, environment.


The main objective of this Special Track is to present research from different fields in developing the theory and practice of forecasting on large economic and financial datasets, with a long-term vision to be to make this technology as widely accepted and useful as today’s weather forecasts. This Special Track provides a platform for researchers and scientists across the world to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of BG-ML. This Special Track also provides an opportunity to interact and establish professional relations for future collaboration. The Special Track aims to promote innovations and work of researchers, students and scientists from across the world on BG-ML. The basic idea of the Special Track is what more can be done using the emerging approaches. Encourage papers to focus on the development of new methods or extensions to existing methods.


The work that will be presented at the Track will focus on the following topics, but are not limited to:
– Financial-economic big data
– Dimensional reduction
– Data mining
– Machine learning
– Financial-economic information extraction and retrieval
– Forecasting and nowcasting models

Submissions will be evaluated and selected based on their quality, originality, and significance to the areas of interest for Special Track. Submissions outside of the Special Track’s Scope should justify their relevance to the main area of interest.
Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process, and papers will be selected through a double-blind review process and authors name and affiliation must not be on the paper. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference. Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, significance of the contribution to the field, technical correctness and presentation, as well as the potential to include participation by conference attendees. The submission should make explicit how the work offers unique and substantial contribution beyond what has already been published or submitted.


At least one author of an accepted paper must register and present online the paper.  So self-recording will be carried out by presenters of accepted papers as the organizers will only be able to provide recording tool.
