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 goal of rescuer Multi agent's project is to simulate urban unpleasant incidents and events to reduce the rate of detriment of this event. The various rescuer forces attempt to do their best duties. One of the most important problems in multi agent system is communication among agents. Most of the various algorithms in multi agent system so far has share of duties, negotiation, learning and searching need to various forms of communication among agents. In the paper we attempt to rescue the most wounded using Reinforcement learning to be able to gain the shortest time.
