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.

Due to the fast growing of automatic processing in the majority of industrial applications, use of RFID technology is almost mandatory. These systems must identify, with high accuracy, objects placed at different angles or objects placed in harsh environments. In this paper, a new design of an HF RFID reader antenna is proposed, which uses a multi-loop configuration. This configuration ensures a uniform magnetic field on its entire surface, even if the antenna is placed on or very close to a metallic plane. The structure of the proposed antenna is mathematically modelled and computer simulated, as a proof of the concept, followed by a validation on an experimental prototype. Results confirm an increase of up to 9 times for the reading distance, compared with a standard HF RFID reader antenna, working in the same environment. The proposed model can be used in order to improve the accuracy of RFID tag identification in real life applications.
