Cloud Computing and Emergent System Architectures

This issue is now closed for submissions.
More articles will be published in the near future.


Due to the rapid progress in system technology, our everyday living becomes more and more convenient. Recently, cloud and smart computing have made consumer electronic devices more adaptive to varying environmental conditions. With the increasing complexity in user requirements, system development for cloud and smart computing applications are also facing many new challenges, especially in system performance, resource usage, power consumption, and design adaptability. To support advanced cloud and smart computing applications, novel hardware/software architecture, complete programming models, efficient resource management techniques, and adaptive algorithms are thus becoming more and more important. Related investigators are invited to contribute original research articles that contribute to cloud computing and smart applications.

We are particularly interested in articles describing emerging system architectures, including hardware modules, communication infrastructures, operating systems, virtualization, and adaptive techniques.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Cloud computing architecture systems
  • Mobile computing architecture systems
  • Hardware-software synergy in emergent systems
  • Adaptation technology in emergent systems
  • Virtualization technology in emergent systems
  • Cyber-physical systems
  • Smart architectures for smart grid, smart traffic, smart city, smart planet
  • Emergent system applications
  • Internet-of-Things (IoT) and wireless technology
  • Software engineering related issues for smart systems
  • Security design for emergent systems
  • Tools and platforms for emergent systems
  • Educational tools and platforms for emergent systems
  • Operating system for emergent systems
  • Optimization and artificial intelligent technology for emergent systems
  • Testing and verification of emergent systems
  • Future and killer applications for emergent systems
