Thematic Issue on Complex Systems and Intelligent Cloud Computing

Complex systems are systems that generate properties which cannot, if not be deducible at all.  They are characterized by the collective behavior of their components. Sources of complex systems include human ecosystems, climate, nervous systems, cells and living conditions, including human beings, as well as existing infrastructures of energy and telecommunication. Such systems require huge computational as well as processing power. One of the solutions is to offload the processing of such systems to the Cloud. 

Cloud computing is an emerged technology that is driving the current Information technology. The three classes of cloud computing networks - public, private, and hybrid - open a new dimension to the business’ and engineers to find their way in the virtual world managing their applications without caring about the management details.

Cloud applications are hosted by data centers where thousands of servers are allocated. Although this number of servers raises some issues such as management and energy, the current cloud applications are the driving forces behind using this large number of resources. Some of these applications are cloud gaming, drop boxes, software and services, industrial storage, and intelligent transportation. Cloud problems as well as its applications require smart management and intelligent techniques to handle their problems. Some of these techniques are neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation, or other meme-centric problem-solving approaches.

This special issue will provide the scientific and industrial communities a dedicated forum to present new research, applications, and deployment efforts in the field of Complex Systems and Intelligent Cloud Computing. The issue includes but not limited to the utilization of intelligence in the following topics: 

  • Various Complex Systems
  • Intelligent Systems
