About this series
The big data paradigm presents a number of challenges for university curricula on big data or data science related topics. On the one hand, new research, tools and technologies are currently being developed to harness the increasingly large quantities of data being generated within our society. On the other, big data curricula at universities are still based on the computer science knowledge systems established in the 1960s and 70s. The gap between the theories and applications is becoming larger, as a result of which current education programs cannot meet the industry’s demands for big data talents.
This series aims to refresh and complement the theory and knowledge framework for data management and analytics, reflect the latest research and applications in big data, and highlight key computational tools and techniques currently in development. Its goal is to publish a broad range of textbooks, research monographs, and edited volumes that will:- Present a systematic and comprehensive knowledge structure for big data and data science research and education- Supply lectures on big data and data science education with timely and practical reference materials to be used in courses- Provide introductory and advanced instructional and reference material for students and professionals in computational science and big data- Familiarize researchers with the latest discoveries and resources they need to advance the field- Offer assistance to interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners seeking to learn more about big data
The scope of the series includes, but is not limited to, titles in the areas of database management, data mining, data analytics, search engines, data integration, NLP, knowledge graphs, information retrieval, social networks, etc. Other relevant topics will also be considered.
