Nowadays, industrial enterprises and companies are addressing the challenge of transforming the Industrial IoT (IIoT) ideas, Industry 4.0, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and similar concepts into reality. In the Industry 4.0 era, various data management research challenges have to be addressed. Huge amounts of heterogeneous sensor data have to be processed in real-time to control the production machines.

Data processing through smart devices is more significant compared to information processing capacity. Data becomes humongous, even coming from a single source. Besides, unstructured data from production reports or external sources must also be integrated to analyze and optimize the production process. Therefore, when data emanates from all heterogeneous sources, its magnitude makes it harder to process up-to a needed scale.

The world has seen many breakthroughs in machine learning and artificial intelligence research. By integrating the advances in smart devices, and big data analysis with the advances in machine learning, the future role of smart systems, networks, and applications is becoming limitless. It's expected to revolutionize the future of the world within the next few years.

We expect to bring together researchers from both industry and academia with diverse backgrounds to propose a new idea, identify promising research directions, and potential challenges.  The submissions are expected in areas such as theories and applications of big data analytics, connected intelligence, visualization, analytics, predictive maintenance, privacy issues, and operation of 5G-enabled smart factories. These applications can benefit from added analysis and intelligence derived from the collected data where this intelligence refers to the use of machine learning techniques.
