Special Issue in Applied Sciences: New Trends in Scalable Computing Service
Special Issue Information
This Special Issue is devoted to Dew Computing as a new post-cloud computing model which appeared in 2015. While cloud computing uses centralized servers to provide various services, Dew computing uses on-premises computers to provide decentralized, cloud-friendly, and collaborative services to end-users. Dew Computing depends on a Dew–Fog–Cloud vertical scalable service hierarchy. Dew Computing performs several critical functions, such as device connectivity, protocol translation, data filtering and processing, security, updating, management, and more. Newer Dew Computing also operates as a platform for application codes that process data and become an intelligent part of an edge-device-enabled system.
The key features of Dew computing are that on-premises computers provide functionality independent of cloud services and also collaborate with cloud services. Brieﬂy speaking, Dew computing is an organized way of using local computers in the age of cloud computing.
This Special Issue intends to gather the latest research and development results on the Dew Computing paradigm. It seeks original contributions, which demonstrate the theoretical and practical progress of Dew Computing, as well as implementation experiences from researchers in the area of Dew Computing, including but not limited to the following topics:
- Low-end distributed systems;
- Dew computing theory and vision;
- Dew computing structure and architecture;
- Dew, Cloudn and Fog computing integration and/or interrelation;
- Dew computing and IoT, ubiquitous computing;
- Dew computing and databases;
- Dew computing and blockchain;
- Dew computing and networks;
- Dew computing protocols and security;
- Dew computing applications.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
