Special Issue on: "Big Data and Decision Sciences in Management and Engineering"

Guest Editors:
Prof. Wachara Chantatub, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand
Prof. Chian-Son Yu, Shih Chien University, Taiwan
Prof. Jung-Fa Tsai, National Taipei University of Technology, Taiwan

With the advancement of big-data and decision sciences, these fields become more interacted and popular as well as wider applications in many practices. This special issue focuses on big-data and decision sciences subject areas through its cutting-edge presentation of advanced research, carefully developed applications, and innovative technology components. We will also provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to review and disseminate quality research work on big-data and decision sciences in management and engineering and to identify critical issues for further developments.

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research papers as well as review articles on all aspects of big data and decision sciences. Of particular interest are papers devoted to recent developments, innovative applications in management and engineering, case studies and survey results in the area of big data and decision sciences and other related areas.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the international conference on business, big-data, and decision sciences 2017 (ICBBD 2017), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
