The amount of data available every day is not only enormous, but growing at an exponential rate. Over the last years there has been an increasing interest in using machine learning methods to analyse and visualize massive data generated from very different sources and with many different features: social networks, surveillance systems, smart cities, medical diagnosis, business, cyberphysical systems or media digital data. This special session is designed to serve researchers and developers to publish original, innovative and state-of-the art machine learning algorithms and architectures to analyse and visualize large amounts of data.

This special session provides a platform for academics, developers, and industry related researchers belonging to the vast communities of Big Data, Machine Learning, Pattern Recognition, Visualization, Media Digital Data , and many others, to discuss, share experience and explore traditional and new areas of Data analysis, processing or visualization and machine learning combined to solve a range of problems. The objective of the workshop is to integrate the growing international community of researchers working on the application of Machine Learning applied to Big Data analysis, processing and visualization to a fruitful discussion on the evolution and the benefits of this technology to the society.

The topics of interest are those related with big data, but we are particularly interested in candidates who have conducted research in the theoretical or practical aspects of big data – algorithms, machine learning, deep learning, statistical learning methods applied to one or more domains – software engineering, media digital data, bio-informatics, health care, imaging and video, social networks, natural language processing and others.
