Call for papers: Research on next generation cloud computing driven by artificial intelligence

Journal of Cloud Computing welcomes submissions to the thematic series on 'Research on next generation cloud computing driven by artificial intelligence'.

Artificial intelligence technology plays a very important role in advanced distributed systems, especially for cloud computing applications. The mutual promotion and collaborative development of artificial intelligence and cloud computing will have an important impact on the development of information technology. Artificial intelligence has promoted the development of cloud computing, and will most likely power the next phase of cloud computing.

This thematic series seeks to bring together research that sheds light on the ways artificial intelligence and cloud computing will mutually shape the future of the next generation of information technology.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

• Next generation cloud computing models built around artificial intelligence capabilities
• Theory, method and technology for next generation cloud computing
• Cloud computing support for mainstream artificial intelligence frameworks
• Management tools for next generation cloud computing platforms
• Cloud computing based on artificial intelligence infrastructure services
• Cloud computing integrating mainstream PAAS services
• Machine learning in cloud computing
• Deep learning in cloud computing
• Cloud machine learning platforms
• Artificial intelligence cloud services
• Classical artificial intelligence algorithm in cloud computing environments
• GPU optimized infrastructure
