Submission Deadline: 31 December 2017
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Cyber-Physical-Social Computing and Networking.
Recently, due to the rapid proliferation of sensors and intelligent devices, a new revolution in computing and communication has been witnessed. The next generation of computing and networking will utilize a wide variety of resources with significant sensing capabilities. Such computing and networking will extend beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks. This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of human (social networks), intelligent devices, and mobile portable devices (e.g., smart phones, PDAs, iPads), that will form Cyber-Physical-Social Computing and Networking (CPSCN). These devices and the network will be constantly sensing, monitoring, and interpreting the environment, which is referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT). The symbiosis of IoT and social networks will have significant implications for both the market for advanced computing and communication infrastructure and future markets – for approximately 5 billion people — that CPSCN will create.
Many researchers have paid much attention to CPSCN since it still faces many challenges (e.g., architecture, security, privacy, incentive mechanism, etc.). This Special Section in IEEE Access is inviting researchers who are working on related research areas to contribute high quality articles to present the most recent advances on emerging technologies in CPSCN, applications, architectures, and big data challenges. Both original practical work and review articles are welcome.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
