Call for papers: Edge computing security and privacy

Edge computing has been proposed as a new paradigm where resources like computation and storage are placed closer to the data source. It enables a new class of latency and bandwidth sensitive applications as data can be processed at the nearest edge. Without sending data to the cloud, edge computing therefore enhances  security and privacy. However, edge computing also brings new possibilities and challenges for research in the field the security and privacy. This thematic series aims to collect the most relevant ongoing research efforts in edge computing security and privacy. 

Call for papers: Machine learning algorithms for IoT services in big data and cloud computing

With an ever increasing number of devices connected to the internet, the volume of data generated and processed at greater speed has increased significantly, especially with the demand for action in real-time. Integrating machine learning techniques into the existing cloud can offer improved efficiency. Given the various innovations and challenges for the existing cloud system to integrate Machine learning and artificial intelligence, we call on all researchers in this field to contribute to this thematic series. 

Call for papers: Cloud information technologies in education

The education industry is undergoing a rapid digital transformation powered by cloud information technology.  With cloud platforms being  key to mobility and accessibility, this technology is opening doors to new learning material and data resources as well as previously inaccessible forms of collaboration and revision. We are calling for papers on original research that implements cloud technology to foster learning effectiveness.

Aims and scope

The Journal of Cloud Computing: Advances, Systems and Applications (JoCCASA) will publish research articles on all aspects of Cloud Computing. Principally, articles will address topics that are core to Cloud Computing, focusing on the Cloud applications, the Cloud systems, and the advances that will lead to the Clouds of the future. Comprehensive review and survey articles that offer up new insights, and lay the foundations for further exploratory and experimental work, are also relevant.

Published articles will impart advanced theoretical grounding and practical application of Clouds and related systems as are offered up by the numerous possible combinations of internet-based software, development stacks and database availability, and virtualized hardware for storing, processing, analysing and visualizing data. Where relevant, Clouds should be scrutinized alongside other paradigms such Peer to Peer (P2P) computing, Cluster computing, Grid computing, and so on. Thorough examination of Clouds with respect to issues of management, governance, trust and privacy, and interoperability, are also in scope.

View all thematic series

Cloud Computing is now a topic of significant impact and, while it may represent an evolution in technology terms, it is revolutionising the ways in which both academia and industry are thinking and acting. The Journal of Cloud Computing, Advances, Systems and Applications (JoCCASA) has been launched to offer a high quality journal geared entirely towards the research that will offer up future generations of Clouds. The journal publishes research that addresses the entire Cloud stack, and as relates Clouds to wider paradigms and topics.
