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.

In this paper, a solution for the automatic control of a residual water blunting system is proposed. The blunting technological process, being a distributed parameter one, is modeled using partial differential equations. This approach implies very big technological advantages due to the fact that the user has access to the pH value in each point of the tanks of the blunting system. Another element of originality is the inclusion of a distributed parameter process in a control structure, having the possibility to maintain the pH value constant in each point in the volume of the liquid from the system. A method based on the matrix of partial derivatives of the state vector (Mpdx) associated with Taylor series is used for the modeling-simulation of both the blunting process and the control system. The results assured by a simple control structure are not sufficient due to the restrictive imposed performances, so a cascade structure is treated in the paper.
