*Proposal Submission Deadline: *January 30, 2014

*Emerging Research in Cloud Distributed Computing Systems*

A book edited by:

Dr. Susmit Bagchi (Gyeongsang National University, South Korea)

*Editorial Advisory Board:*

Dr. Vijay K. Garg, University of Texas at Austin, USA

Dr. Sherali Zeadally, University of Kentucky, USA

Dr. Rajkumar Buyya, University of Melbourne, Australia

To be published by IGI Global: *

For release in the Advances in Systems Analysis, Software Engineering, and
High Performance Computing (ASASEHPC) Book Series.

The *Advances in Systems Analysis, Software Engineering, and High
Performance Computing (ASASEHPC) Book Series* brings together research in
the areas of distributed computing, systems and software engineering, high
performance computing, and service science. This collection of publications
is useful for academics, researchers, and practitioners seeking the latest
practices and knowledge in this field.


The deployment of distributed computing systems is wide spread and
distributed computing applications are pervasive in the information age of
today. Grid and cloud computing systems are different forms of distributed
computing systems in reality. Future trends indicate that, the deployment
of distributed computing systems will be proliferative in many different
computing environments such as, cloud, grid, cluster, mobile distributed
systems and embedded distributed systems. In other words, distributed
computing is and will continue to be pervasive.

This book will cover the emerging research trends and advancements in the
above mentioned areas. Prospective authors are invited to submit chapter
proposals in any of the following research areas. A chapter may give a
broad survey of issues, methods, techniques and algorithms for a topic. It
may also be a case study or description of a system that illustrates
existing techniques in the area.

*Target Audience*

The target audiences of the book are the final year undergraduate students,
graduate students, researchers and professionals working in the field.

*Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:*

                            Distributed computing (formal models and

                            Distributed systems and architectures

                            Distributed Operating Systems

                            Grid computing systems (including grid
security and, performance monitoring)

                            Cloud computing systems (including models,
resource management and, security)

                            Mobile distributed computing systems
(including mobile computing platforms)

                            Embedded distributed computing systems
(including heterogeneous platforms)

                            Cluster computing systems

                            Geo-distributed computing systems

*Note:* Chapters on mathematical modeling, algorithms, architecture design
and implementations as well as performance evaluations in any of the above
mentioned areas are welcome.

*Submission Procedure*

Step 1: Chapter proposal submission

Authors are invited to submit chapter proposal (2-3 pages) on or
before *January
30, 2014*. The chapter proposal should clearly explain the aim and
contribution of his or her proposed chapter.

Step 2: Full chapter submission

The chapter proposals will be reviewed and authors of accepted proposals
will be notified by *February 28, 2014* about the status of their
proposals. Author guidelines on the preparation of the full chapter will be
sent to authors of accepted proposals. Full chapters are expected to be
submitted by *May 30, 2014*.

All submitted chapters will be carefully reviewed by external reviewers
following the double-blind review process.


Submissions can be forwarded *electronically* (PDF) as an email-attachment
