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.

Different clustering algorithms, or even the same algorithm with different input parameters, can produce different data partitioning. Then, clustering validity measures are applied in order to determine which results have better quality than others. External measures can be used for evaluation of clustering algorithms on datasets with known data division. However, in a real scenario such information is not available, and here internal measures are often applied. Subspace clustering techniques can create clusters which utilise different subsets of the full feature space. From this reason, a calculation of internal measures using the full feature space distance metrics (e.g., Euclidean distance) is not justified. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to subspace clustering evaluation with internal quality measures, i.e., we apply distance metrics that are able to handle missing attribute values or are used in dimensionality reduction techniques. Our approach is verified on eight publicly available, widely-used datasets. Obtained results are promising and allow recommending proposed distance metrics to be suitable for calculation of examined internal validation measures.
