  • Techniques and models for big data
  • Algorithms and systems for big data
  • Machine learning and AI for big data
  • Databases and data mining for big data
  • Graph mining and opinion mining
  • Web search and information retrieval
  • Bioinformatics data management
  • Infrastructure and platforms for smart computing
  • Models and tools for smart computing
