Washington, DC – July 7, 2014 COM.* Conference released Message from General Chair and Program At a Glance today. COM.* conference includes COM.Geo 2014, COM.BigData 2014, and COM.DriverlessCar 2014.
Message from General Chair
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the COM.* 2014 Conferences and Summits; in short form, COM.* 2014, which takes place in Washington DC, U.S.A. on August 4-6, 2014 as well as the online COM.* Virtual Conference (COM.* VC).
The COM.* 2014 is an exclusive cross-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary event. It includes COM.Geo 2014, 5th International Conference on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application, COM.BigData 2014, The International Summit on Big Data Computing, and COM.DriverlessCar 2014, The International Summit on Driverless Car Computing.
The upcoming discussions at the event will not only give the key insights for future impacts and challenges, new perspectives, further innovation, trends for Big Data, driverless cars, and geospatial computing, but also reveal the interrelations between these technologies.
COM.* 2014 has exciting and high quality technical program sessions including brainstorm plenary keynotes from U.S. DOT, U.S. DOE, Oracle, NVIDIA, Northrop Grumman, COMStar, Federal Big Data Working Group, etc., emerging tech panels, tech shows, workshops, research papers, practice papers, tech talks, posters, hot short talks, and onsite and online exhibits. COM.* 2014 provides diverse opportunities for all decision-makers, engineers, researchers, developers, and users, across industrial companies, government agencies, and academic institutions, to present or demonstrate their latest work or share their latest visions and ideas at the event.
COM.Geo 2014 is a leading-edge conference with a focus on the latest computing technologies for multidisciplinary research and development that enables the exploration in geospatial areas. It is an exclusive event that builds a bridge between computing and geospatial fields. It connects decision makers, researchers, developers, scientists, and application users from government, academia, and industry in all related fields. The attendees were from more than 50 countries all over the world. COM.Geo publications by IEEE and ACM, read and cited worldwide, have broad impact on the development of theory, method and practice in geospatial computing.
COM.BigData 2014 is the International Summit on Big Data Computing. The summit offers a timely venue for researchers, government decision-makers, and industry partners to present and discuss their latest insights, challenges, and results in big data computing. Big data provides an opportunity to find insight in new and emerging types of information constructions. How will you take advantage of this opportunity? Big Data definately presents a number of challenges related to its complexity, heterogeneity, and immensity. Many of these novel challenges necessitate rethinking various aspects of information processing philosophy, data management platforms, and computing methodologies in science, engineering, medicine, and business.
COM.DriverlessCar 2014 is the premier forum featuring with a mixture of inspiring presentations and interactive discussions on driverless car technology and non-technical challenges, which will impact driverless vehicle integration into tomorrow's roadway. Although driverless car technology has become more and more viable recently, we still have a long way to go for self-driving in public. No matter how smart self-driving cars are, safety is the most important thing. At the summit, researchers, practitioners, Policy-makers, decision-makers, and managers from government agencies, industry, and academia will discuss the latest trends, strategies, challenges, research and applications as well as policies and business potentials for driverless cars.

About COM.* Conference
COM.* 2014 has expanded to three more emerging tech areas, Big Data, driverless cars, and geospatial computing. COM.Geo has been playing a guiding role to advancing the technologies in computing for geospatial research and application since it was initiated 5 years ago.
This year, COM.* conferences and summits will focus on COM.BigData 2014, COM.DriverelessCar 2014, and COM.Geo 2014. All three will take place in the same time frame and conference center in August in Washington DC, USA as well as COM.* online Virtual Conference center.
Several leading keynotes and insightful panels from U.S. federal government and world-class industries and universities will be open to all the attendees of the three conferences and summits. There will be a great opportunity for everyone to learn trends, share visions, exchange ideas, discuss details, and expand networking circles.
