[JPDC Call for Papers]

                          Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing

                                         Special Issue on

          Scalable Platforms and Advanced Algorithms for IoT and
Cyber-Enabled Applications


Aims and Scope

With the help of emerging technologies and computing paradigms, such as the
mobile computing, social computing, and Internet of Things, the
Cyber-Physical Systems have continuously permeated into all walks of our
life at the personal, urban, and global scale, which is involving more and
more people into an integration of physical, social, and mental space,
called cyberspace. The process of producing numerous cyber things and
developing cybermatic applications is progressively accelerating the
requirements of cyber-infrastructure support, promising technology
innovation, and smart platform development. Practical algorithms and
mechanisms regarding to high performance computing and parallelism should
be explored to deal with the new phenomena, behaviors, and practices in the
highly distributed Cyber-Physical systems across the
cyber-physical-social-mental conjugation. A number of challenge issues
include: How to develop the foundational architecture and platform to
support the efficient and scalable processing of hybrid data set? How to
figure out the parallel optimization methods for the distributed control
and real-time interaction issues? How to handle the security and privacy,
scalability and reliability, efficiency and energy issues in the
cyber-enabled applications, and etc.

Topics may include (but are not limited to):

•  Hybrid Platform and Middleware Design for Cyber-Enabled Applications
•  Parallel and Distributed Models for Cyber-Physical Systems
•  Parallel Optimization Algorithm for Cyber-Enabled Applications
•  Cloud-based Parallel and Distributed Algorithms for Wearable Computing
•  High Performance Evaluation Metrics of Distributed Cyber-Physical Systems
•  Real-Time Behavior Analysis and Interaction Measure in Cyberspace
•  Data Transfer Scheduling and Resource Management for Cyber-Enabled
•  Framework and Implementation for Smart Energy Systems in Cyberspace
•  Advanced PDC for Heterogeneous Data Storage and Management
•  Distributed Computing and Algorithm in Sensor Networks
•  Parallel and Distributed Mechanism for Intelligent Transportation Systems
•  Parallel and Distributed Computing for Cyber-Enabled Healthcare
•  Security, Privacy and Safety in Cyber-Enabled Applications
•  Scalable Platform of High Reliability


The authors should prepare their manuscript following the formatting
guidelines at Guide for Authors online:,
and submit through Elsevier Editorial System (EES) at: To ensure that the manuscript is correctly
identified for inclusion into the special issue, authors must select "SI:
Scalable Platform IoT" when they reach the “Article Type” step in the
submission process.
