With new technologies, such as mobile communications, internet of things, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data, much faster than several years ago. Big data, characterized by high volume, diversity and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments to private organizations, from communities to individuals. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction. We dedicate a special section of Issue 4/2017 to Big Data. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of May 2017, placing "BigData - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

The aim of the paper is to describe a system for the head gesture recognition developed in the frame of INTEROB project1. The goal of this project consists in developing an interaction based on gestures with information on robotic systems. In the paper we discussed a method for controlling the mouse pointer movements on the screen by recognizing the operator head movements captured by a video camera. In the second part of the paper it is described a fast and accurate method for hand posture recognition in video sequences.
