The LNCS magazine Transactions on Large-Scale facts- and Knowledge-Centered structures makes a speciality of info administration, wisdom discovery, and data processing, that are middle and sizzling subject matters in desktop technology. because the Nineties, the net has develop into the most motive force at the back of software improvement in all domain names. a rise within the call for for source sharing throughout diversified websites hooked up via networks has resulted in an evolution of knowledge- and knowledge-management platforms from centralized structures to decentralized structures permitting large-scale dispensed functions offering excessive scalability. present decentralized platforms nonetheless specialise in information and information as their major source. Feasibility of those structures is predicated essentially on P2P (peer-to-peer) suggestions and the aid of agent platforms with scaling and decentralized keep watch over. Synergy among grids, P2P structures, and agent applied sciences is the most important to info- and knowledge-centered structures in large-scale environments. This, the 8th factor of Transactions on Large-Scale info- and Knowledge-Centered structures, comprises 8 revised chosen standard papers targeting the subsequent subject matters: scalable information warehousing through MapReduce, prolonged OLAP multidimensional types, naive OLAP engines and their optimization, complex information flow processing and mining, semi-supervised studying of information streams, incremental development mining over facts streams, organization rule mining over facts streams, widespread development discovery over information streams.
