Special Issue on Smart Computing and Cyber Technology for Cyberization


Aims and Scope

Following the well-known concepts of computerization and informatization,
an emerging era of cyberization, which is considered as a reformation of
the present physical, social and mental worlds, has become a hotly
discussed trend in the new cyber world. During the cyberization process, a
large number of real things will conjugatively map to various kinds and
levels of cyber existence in cyber world. It is said that cyberization has
already taken place in a variety of fields along with the development of
several emerging computing paradigms and information communication
technologies, such as ubiquitous/pervasive computing, social computing and
networking, and wearable technologies, etc. Specifically, with the rapid
growth of Internet of Things and cognitive cyber-physical systems, more and
more digital things or cyber entities, are engaged or generated in the
integrated cyber world. Emerging technologies in smart environments, such
as smart computing and smart objects, become very significant, promising,
and enabling issues in cyberization, to enhance the efficiency of sensing,
processing, and communication in the conjugations of physical, social and
mental worlds. Accordingly, the cyber technology is playing an important
role in developing effective methods of resource management, data
acquisition, and pattern recognition across cyber-related systems and
applications. All these provide us opportunities to explore smart computing
methodologies and computational intelligence algorithms, in order to
facilitate the cyberization process in cyber world.

This special issue on Smart Computing and Cyber Technology for Cyberization
aims at bringing together researchers and engineers from both academia and
industry to present physical concepts, calculation methods, application
possibilities, and new opportunities with respect to the development of
cyber-related information and communication technologies. In particular,
this special issue will have a great significance and profound impact on:
i) providing various opportunities in studying cyber and cyber-conjugated
things which are necessary for the cyber-enabled new worlds; ii) organizing
the body of knowledge in cyber-related studies and applications with
comprehensive frameworks in inter-, trans- and multi-discipline fields;
iii) enhancing numerous cyber technologies not only in fundamental research
works, but also in application system development; and iv) offering a
common platform for researchers to gather many existing cyber-related
research areas together, to identify and form promising new frontiers.
