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.

This paper propose a new type of analog adaptive filter derived as a generalization of the concept of matched filter. We conceive such a filter to track the instantaneous frequency of frequency modulated signals. Some properties of the proposed analog frequency tracking filter are established using the time-frequency representations theory. A constructive solution, based on common analog integrated circuits, is also proposed. The performance of the analog frequency tracking filter built is evaluated by measurements. Finally, some possible applications are highlighted.
