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.

Class D amplifiers find new applications in RFID systems, because of their high efficiency. Most textbooks describe the case of a load directly connected to the amplifier. However, in most RFID systems the usage of a transmission line is mandatory and this may introduce some novel effects, in the form of an infinite series of peaks in the system frequency response functions. If not appropriately taken care of, these effects may lead to electromagnetic compatibility problems. The purpose of the paper is to develop the theory of the peak control function, which is conceived as a tool that allows the designer to keep the magnitude of the peaks, and hence their influence on the system, into well defined limits.
