Call for papers: "Future Internet: Services and Data Management"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Space-Based and Situated Computing.

This special issue will focus on the efforts and directions being proposed for the future internet, including the services that are envisaged and the techniques for management, analysis and visualisation of big data. For instance, cloud computing services have the ability to provide the resources –computation, storage and networking in a secure manner – to support big data management and processing. It aims at disseminating research contributions detailing and promoting advances in the emerging technical, architectural, operational and deployment aspects of infrastructure, services and tools for the future internet and big data.

The issue is aimed at academics and practitioners in the emerging services associated with the future internet and the growing body of professionals, both in industry and academia, working with techniques associated with big data in a wide range of applications and domains.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International TeNAS13 (https://sites.google.com/site/tenasorg/tenas2013) and TeNAS14 (https://sites.google.com/site/tenasorg/) workshops, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Smart spaces
  • Content-aware and information-centric networks
  • Middleware and architectures
  • Intelligent transport systems (ITS) and application design
  • Digital home networking and applications
  • Next generation networks, fixed-mobile convergence
