Electronic Government, an Int. J.

 

Special Issue on: "New Developments in Electronics, Cloud and IoT"

 

Guest Editors:
Prof. A. Surendar and Dr. N. Usha Rani, Vignanís University, India

 

Cloud and IoT are considered as complimentary technologies. They provide paradigms for the development of distributed, heterogeneous and complex systems which are characterised by requirements such as large scale storage space, a large volume of data (or big data), high end computer processing power, greater flexibility and availability, and interoperable networks and communication protocols. Such systems contain a set of smart (physical) devices of IoT which are interconnected and controlled through (software) services using cloud infrastructure. Thus the convergence of cloud with the IoT has the potential to provide new levels of services in various sectors including businesses, education, science and research, public sector and governmental organisations.

 

This special issue aims to foster the dissemination of high-quality research with new ideas, approaches, theories and practice to resolve the challenging issues related to the new developments in cloud and IoT.

 

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International conference on Allied Electrical and Communication Systems (ICAECS2016), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
