Cloud and Internet computing technologies have emerged as new paradigms for solving complex problems by enabling large-scale aggregation and sharing of computational, data and other geographically distributed computational resources. The continuous development of the internet and the construction of new internet and cloud computing infrastructures are making the development of large scale applications from many fields of science and engineering possible. Cloud and internet computing is an emerging and promising discipline which can have applications ranging from engineering, science, finance, and economics, to arts and humanities. New challenges arise in the modelling of complex systems, sophisticated algorithms, advanced scientific and engineering computing and associated (multidisciplinary) problem-solving environments for internet and cloud computation. This special issue will focus on the development of new techniques related to internet and cloud computation, including security-related techniques and various other interesting techniques.

The special issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at 10th International Conference on P2P, Parallel, Grid, Cloud and Internet Computing (3PGCIC 2015), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Encryption and authentication techniques to secure internet and cloud computation
  • Secure search techniques for cloud storage
  • Secure protocols for communication network
  • New routing and resource management algorithms for internet network and cloud
  • Information hiding techniques in cloud environment
  • Novel cryptographic techniques for internet and cloud computation

Notes for Prospective Authors

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. (N.B. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper has been completely re-written and if appropriate written permissions have been obtained from any copyright holders of the original paper).

All papers are refereed through a peer review process.

All papers must be submitted online. To submit a paper, please read our Submitting articles page.
