The workshop on ATBD 2018 will focus on all aspects on techniques and applications in Big Data research. In the era of big data, we are facing new challenges for gaining meaningful insights from different data sources. Huge amount of data from too many sources indeed make the task of data analytics very cumbersome. Hence, it is imperative to design effective algorithms and develop efficient frameworks for data analytics in any application domain. The purpose of ATBD is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of innovative ideas, research results, applications and experience from around the world as well as highlight activities in the related areas. Original papers on all aspects of Big Data are solicited for submission to ATBD 2018. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Big Data Models and Algorithms
 Foundational Models for Big Data
