Computational intelligence for internet services and applications

Journal of Internet Services and Applications welcomes submissions to the thematic series on "Computational intelligence for
internet services and applications".

The Internet has evolved significantly over the 50 years of its existence and it is clear that it still needs to evolve further over the next decades. Apart from the continuous evolution of networking technologies, a key game changer is the ever-growing use of intelligent systems that rely on data mining, machine learning, or computational intelligence techniques.
The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) has made it possible to provide innovative services and applications, while also supporting emerging areas such as Smart Cities. However, the massive amount of data generated by sensors and other sources poses new challenges that are still to be adequately addressed. In addition, the current trend towards intelligent Internet services and applications poses new requirements for the networking infrastructure, such as scalability, robustness and configuration flexibility. This is particularly true for underlying technologies supporting the “As a Service” model of cloud and fog computing, also known as network softwarization. A new trend has been led by virtualization technologies, such as SDN and NFV and requires increased levels of intelligence.
This Journal of Internet Services and Applications thematic series aims to publish high-level research involving a variety of techniques collectively classified as Computational Intelligence (such as Neural Networks, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Fuzzy Logic and Evolutionary Computation) applied to advanced and novel Internet infrastructure (including network softwarization and virtualization technologies), architectures, protocols, services and applications.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Computational Intelligence for Future Internet Architectures
  • Computational Intelligence for Internet Protocols
  • Computational Intelligence for Internet Services and Applications
  • Computational Intelligence for Internet Middleware
  • Computational Intelligence for Data Center Networks
  • Computational Intelligence for Internet of Things
  • Computational Intelligence for Network Softwarization (SDN & NFV)
  • Computational Intelligence for Big Data Networking
  • Computational Intelligence for Cloud Computing
  • Computational Intelligence for Fog Computing
  • Computational Intelligence applied to Applications and Services for Smart Cities
