Cloud computing has firmly established itself as an indispensable utility for the digital age, and has become a scalable services consumption and delivery platform in the field of services computing.

Cloud service consumers expect and rely on sufficient computing power, the availability of data and media, and accessibility across a range of devices. The expectation now is that cloud service providers are capable of maintaining streaming services that are always available. The resource sharing at various levels results in various cloud offerings such as infrastructure cloud (e.g. hardware, IT infrastructure management), software cloud (e.g. SaaS focusing on middleware as a service, or traditional CRM as a service), application cloud (e.g. application as a service, UML modelling tools as a service, social network as a service), and business cloud (e.g. business process as a service).

To focus on the emerging area of cloud computing, inspired by the latest advances that concern infrastructure, operations and available services through the global network, this special issue invites authors to share and explore modern services and software sciences in the field of cloud computing. From a technology foundation perspective, cloud computing has become the default discipline in the modern arena.
