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.

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.

In this study, a novel, differential pair based, high performance and high bandwidth current subtractor is proposed. Very low equivalent impedances are obtained at input ports n and p by using source follower transistors. Furthermore, the proposed circuit is self-biasing which makes it resistant to process, supply voltage and temperature variations. The proposed current subtractor can be used as an input stage for current-mode active circuits like current differencing buffered amplifier (CDBA), operational transresistance amplifier (OTRA) and current differencing transconductance amplifier (CDTA) which employ current subtractors. A numeric figure-of-merit is defined and it is used to demonstrate the superior performance of the proposed circuit.
