Grid and pervasive computing (GPC) has emerged rapidly as an exciting new paradigm that includes ubiquitous, grid, and pervasive computing to provide intelligence, insight, and vision for emerging world of intelligent environment, products, services and human interaction.

This special issue is intended to foster state-of-the-art research in the area of GPC, including the topics of service computing, grid and pervasive computing, business models, and novel applications associated with this new paradigm. The published papers are expected to focus on application services and present high quality results to solve various problems in smart space.
