Aims and Scope
With the high development of Ubiquitous Computing, Mobile Computing, and
Social Computing, the physical world and cyber world are increasingly
integrating and merging, which can be called the hyper world. An emerging
but significant field called cybermatics, which aims to build systematic
knowledge about new phenomena, behaviors, properties and practices in the
cyberspace and cyberization, is developed to model the human individual
information processing along with the broad applications across the
cyber-enabled systems. Cybermatics is a holistic field to systematically
study cyber entities in cyberspace, their properties and functions as well
as their relations and conjugations with entities in physical, social and
mental spaces, which is concerned more with the basic attributes,
properties, models, representations, interactions, and evolutions of cyber
entities, and all their possible relations conjugated with real things.
Specifically, it can be regarded as the interdisciplinary or
trans-disciplinary research and practice focusing on five major aspects:
the cyber entities in cyberspace, cyber-physical conjugation, cyber-social
conjugation, cyber-mental conjugation, and cyber-physical-social-mental
Integration. For this scientific and systematic study, numerous challenges
are raised as: How to establish and improve the foundational theory and
methodology for the basic models and data processing in the hyper world?
How to find a unified way to study and represent the diversified cyber
entities along with their tremendous associations and interconnections? How
to systematically extract, create, and fuse the information, knowledge, and
intelligence generated across the cyber-physical-social systems for the
sustainable utilization? How to deal with the accompanying issues while
producing numerous cyber things, such as security, reliability, and etc.

Topics may include (but are not limited to):

•  Modeling of Cyberspace & Cyber-world
•  Cyber-Physical Hybrid Interface/System Design
•  Mechanism for Intelligent Transportation Systems
•  Wearable Computing and Smart Sensor
•  Social Internet of Things
•  Cyber-Social Data Processing and Intelligence Mining
•  Knowledge Modeling and Management in Cyber-Social Networks
•  Cyber-Social Sensing and Behavior Analysis
•  User Influence Measure and Model in Social Cyberspace
•  Cyber-Based Learning Analytics
•  Cyber-Empowered Sentiment Analysis and Mental Computing
•  Cyber Visualization
•  Cyber Security, Privacy and Reliability
•  Data Quality Control
•  Smart Healthcare and Lifecare
•  Well-being Oriented Life Support

Submissions
Authors should prepare their manuscript according to the Guide for Authors
of Future Generation Computer Systems available from
http://www.elsevier.com/journals/future-generation-computer-systems/0167-739X/guide-for-authors,
and submit online at: http://ees.elsevier.com/fgcs/default.asp. To ensure
that the manuscript is correctly identified for inclusion into the special
issue, authors must select "Cyber-Enabled Application" when they reach the
“Article Type” step in the submission process.
