Special Issue on "Scalable and High-Performance Architectures for Large-Scale Data Management” - RITA

In the last years the overwhelming growth in the data generated and its dynamism have created challenging scenarios where Scalable and High-Performance architectures are fundamentals to process and extract knowledge in an efficient manner. The Revista de Informática Teórica e Aplicada (RITA - ISSN 2175-2745) seeks submissions for a special issue on Scalable and high-performance architectures for large-scale data management.

Papers must be written in English, according to the RITA formatting guidelines. Only full papers are accepted for submission. Papers will be refereed through a blind process for technical merit and content. 

Topics of Interest (but not limited to):

Computing Performance Scalability for Big Data
Online, Active, Decentralized Large-scale Data Processing
Processing Large-scale Datasets Using HPC
Batching and Streaming for Large-scale Data Processing
