                          Scalable Computing and Communications

                                         Special Issue on

          Scalable Algorithms and Behavior Analytics in Cyber-Enabled World

Aims and Scope

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.

• Scalable Communications in Cyber-world
• Data Centric Computing in Cyberspace
