With recent advancements in the field of computer hardware, from traditional desktops to palmtops and tablet computers, and also in communication media, from conventional wired to wireless and even ad hoc/mobile ad hoc networks, we require advanced computing techniques to meet current needs.

Nano, mobile, cluster and grid computing can be viewed as efficient computing techniques in this modern era in which we cannot restrict ourselves to small premises. The network is also growing at a rapid pace and its data is ultimately becoming enormous in amount as well as in nature.

To carry out an efficient search on the Web in this situation, context awareness computing may become an effective option. To handle the huge network of distributed computers, we may see a ray of hope in grid computing. Battery power is also a vital issue when we are roaming. Limited bandwidth is another prime concern due to the wireless and mobile nature of nodes, so bandwidth allocation should be designated according to application. Mobile computing may handle such matters and many other related issues.

This special issue aims to cultivate the dissemination of high quality research in the fields of nano computing, mobile computing, cluster computing and grid computing, and other advances in computing techniques.
