About STBD

The Services Transactions on Big Data (STBD), formerly the International Journal of Big Data (IJBD), is a refereed, international publication aiming to be a core resource providing leading technologies, development applications, empirical studies, and future trends in the field of Big Data. STBD's major topics include but not limited to architecture, modeling, development, deployment, analytics, optimization, outsourcing, delivery model, consulting, and solutions of big data.

Aiming to become a prestigious international journal in the field, STBD only considers extended versions of papers published in reputable related conferences. Sponsored by Services Society, the published STBD papers will be made accessible for easy of citation and knowledge sharing, in addition to paper copies. All published STBD papers will be promoted and recommended to potential authors of the future versions of related reputable conferences such as BigData, ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, SERVICES, and MS.

Some related conferences

The Services Society co-sponsors the following conferences as a means to explore the deep knowledge space of Services Computing in different directions:


Big Data has become a valuable resource and mechanism for the practitioners and researchers to explore the value of data sets in all kinds of business scenarios and scentific investigations. New computing platforms such as cloud computing, mobile Internet, social network are driving the innovations of big data. From government initiative perspective, Obama Administration in United States launched "Big Data" initiative that announces $200 Million in new R&D investments on March 29, 2012. European Union also announced "Big Data at your service" on July 25, 2012. From industry perspective, IBM, SAP, Oracle, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and other leading software and internet service companies have also launched their own innovation initiatives around big data.
