Big Data is an emerging hot topic as human beings are generating data in an
explosive fashion. Big Data possesses profound information of our society,
and therefore, it impacts numerous aspects of human society, such as
government, finance, security, climate and so on. Big Data is usually so
large and complex, which is far beyond the capacity of the existing
database management tools or traditional data processing applications.
Currently, most of the work on Big Data is focusing on business,
application and information processing level, such as data mining and

However, Big Data definitely and desperately desires the support from
networking aspect, especially when real time or near real time applications
are demanded. For example, the storage of Big Data must depend on
distributed systems and mechanisms. Therefore, it involves issues of
network performance, structure, security, privacy and so on. However, these
aspects of Big Data are seldom studied to date. This Special Issue solicits
both original research and tutorial articles that discuss about networking
aspect of Big Data, such as, network topology impaction on Big Data,
distributed Big Data storage and retrieval, security and privacy protection
for Big Data, and so on. Topics of interest include, but are not limited

   - Network architecture design for Big Data
   - Distributed systems for Big Data
   - Parallel and distributed algorithms for Big Data
   - Data migration and backup for Big Data
   - Data synchronization for Big Data
   - Access control in Big Data
   - Network security, privacy and trust in Big Data
   - Network performance analysis in Big Data
   - Network modelling for Big Data
   - Anonymous communication for Big Data
