Call: Scalable Algorithms and Behavior Analytics in Cyber-Enabled World – SCAC special issue

Call for Papers

Scalable Computing and Communications

Special Issue on
Scalable Algorithms and Behavior Analytics in Cyber-Enabled World

Deadline: March 31, 2018


Due to the emerging computing paradigm, the physical, social, and mental world are increasingly integrating and merging into the cyberspace. In this emerging but significant field, it is necessary to model the human individual information processing along with their corresponding behaviors, in order to build systematic knowledge about new phenomena, behaviors, properties and practices across the broad applications in cyber-enabled world. Specifically, studies related to scalable algorithm and behavioral analysis are conducted in terms of the cyber entities, as well as their relations and conjugations in physical, social and mental spaces, which focuses more on the basic attributes, models, functions, and evolutions of cyber entities, and all their possible relations conjugated with real things. For this scientific and systematic study, numerous challenges are raised as: How to establish and improve the foundational theory and methodology for the scalable computing and data processing in the cyber-enabled world? How to find a unified way to study and represent the diversified cyber entities along with their behavior patterns and communications? How to systematically extract, create, and fuse the information, knowledge, and intelligence generated across the 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.
