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 "Big Data - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

We have the confirmation Advances in Electrical and Computer Engineering will be included in the Gale database.

IoT is a new emerging technology domain which will be used to connect all objects through the Internet for remote sensing and control. IoT uses a combination of WSN (Wireless Sensor Network), M2M (Machine to Machine), robotics, wireless networking, Internet technologies, and Smart Devices. We dedicate a special section of Issue 2/2017 to IoT. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of March 2017, placing "IoT - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

In this paper a new low voltage 5th order Gm-C Bessel type low-pass filter (LPF) with auto-tuning loop and higher dynamic range, designed in CMOS technology, is presented. The cut-off frequency can be tuned in (10-42)MHz range by modifying the values of the grounded capacitors using a digital logic. The proposed structure is based on an auto-tuning loop in order to maintain the Gm/C ratio independent of the process, supply voltage and temperature variations, assuring the cut-off frequency of the LPF independently of these factors. The proposed 5th order Gm-C Bessel type low-pass filter provides 5% variation of the cut-off frequency in all critical corners, a 400mVpp(diff) dynamic range, THD less than 1% and 21.6mW power consumption from 1.8V supply voltage. The simulations performed in 65nm CMOS process confirm the theoretical results.
