There is rapid growth in the use of smart electronic devices, along with the deep availability of wireless networks. Companies and individuals prefer to outsource their data in the cloud to keep the data secured but if the private data is leaked the impact of the consequences will be critical. Hence, to create a safe and secured environment, cloud computing and the Internet of Things have progressively expanded to cover applications in many daily life contexts.
The developments in network research have been fuelled by the recognition of complex systems as a subject of scientific inquiry and methodological advances in the spread of information and the transfer of knowledge among networks through the identification of shortest paths and the analysis of diffusion problems.
The objective of this special issue will be to bring together research contributions on the design, specification, architectural implementation, protocols, and algorithms focusing on the theme of networking in more complex, dynamic and hyperconnected environments.
We invite researchers to contribute original research articles that will explore the continuing efforts to understand the novel techniques that lead to future improvements in data centre networking and cloud computing.
The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference for Phoenixes on Emerging Current Trends in Engineering And Management (PECTEAM-2018), 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:
- Ad-hoc network
- Wireless sensor network
- Internet of things
- Cloud security and virtualisation
- Web mining
- Mobile computing
- High performance computing, social computing
- Data mining and data warehouse
- Peer to peer computing
