    Special Interest Group on Big Data

    University of Malaya to spearhead MySIG on Big Data! Join the Malaysian SIG on Big Data and get a 360 degree view on what is happening around the world in supply chains, social media channels and private and public sectors.

Committee Members

MySIGBigData aims to provide a platform among researchers, scientists, and industries to share and discuss knowledge, ideas, and experience on Big Data at national and international level. We committed to advancing the skills and knowledge of Big Data in different disciplines, such as business, education, social science, medicine, biology, and physics. We give opportunity to the members to collaborate in research works and Big Data practices. We do so in a variety of ways; organizing research meetings, annual talk series, national and international workshops and conferences, and research collaboration.

Malaysian Special Interest Group (MySIG) on Big Data is initiated in order to provide a platform among researchers to share knowledge, ideas and experience related to big data issues. By having the MySIG website we hope Malaysian researchers will be able to collaborate better either in their research work or experiences. Currently, our steering committee includes:
