International Workshop on Big Data Management and Practice (BDMP’16):

(with SKG’16) || August 15-17, 2016 - Beijing, China


In the past a few years, we all witness the arisen of “Big Data”, driven by the increasing availability of data from multiple sources. Today's unprecedented data volume and speed of generation make big data management a very big challenge.

BDMP 2016 workshop will bring together different participants from both academic and industry who working with Big Data. The aim is to explore the current and future challenges in data management, and solution of the adoption of Big Data technologies in various application domain. BDMP’16 will be articulated on one day workshop, preceded by one day of tutorials.

We are confident that BDMP’16 will provide the open and stimulating environment that brought together researchers, developers and users, from the various fields to discuss goals, current limits and real experiences in Big Data management and the use of Big Data technologies in practice.

The 1st International Workshop on New Generation Summarisation

(with SKG’16) || August 15-17, 2016 - Beijing, China


Summarisation is a kind of intelligent behaviour. It is significant to study automatic summarisation systems with regard to constant expanding of texts online. Text summarisation has been studied for over a half century but it is still hard to automatically generate a satisfied summary. It is the critical time to rethink the methods of summarisation research. The rapid development of cyberspace brings new requirements and challenges to summarisation research and development. This workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas on summarization from diverse areas, to make contribution to the new generation summarization at the age of big data and artificial intelligence.

The 1st International Workshop on New Generation Summarization will be held together with the 12th International Conference on Semantics, Knowledge and Grids, which will be held during 15-17 August 2016 in Beijing, China.


  • (1) Semantics, knowledge, language, cognition and psychology aspects of summarisation
  • (2) New theories, principles, models and methods for summarisation
  • (3) Summarization of things (texts, data, pictures, videos, etc.)
  • (4) Visualisation innovation of summary
  • (5) Other novel theory and applications on summarisation

Important Dates:

  • Submission: July 20, 2016

  • Notification of acceptance: July 25, 2016


Authors should submit papers via the conference submission website: The file names of your papers should start with 'NGS-' to distinguish your papers from other papers.
