Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Applying artificial intelligence in distributed environments is becoming an element of high added value and economic potential. Research on intelligent distributed systems has matured over the last decade, and many effective applications are now being deployed in both urban and rural environments. Smart cities are extending their concept to other non-urban areas where distributed computing is able to reach. The wellbeing of all the citizens of a country remains in the variety of its areas. It is therefore necessary and crucial to engage both urban and rural areas to achieve their economic, social, and environmental objectives.

Most computing systems, ranging from personal laptops to cluster/grid /cloud computing systems, are capable of parallel and distributed computing. Intelligent distributed computing performs an increasingly important role in modern signal/data processing, information fusion, and electronics engineering.

The combination of technological solutions based on technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (Machine Learning) in distributed systems has allowed the creation of some solutions such as creating “Smart Spaces” regardless of the users' location and that provide flexible and adaptable seamless cloud-edge decision making.

The main objective of this Special Issue is to seek high-quality research that presents emerging solutions and/or applications based on AI techniques, such as Machine Learning, that address recent challenges in intelligent distributed systems. We especially focus on technological problems such as scarce energy and computational resources, frequent changes of conditions, geographical dispersion, and unexpected connectivity problems, but also on problems related to the independence and autonomy of participants, such as the provision of fair solutions that foster collaboration and information exchange and provide benefits for all involved entities.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Intelligent computing spaces
  • Application of Artificial Intelligence in distributed systems
  • Application of Machine Learning algorithms in distributed systems
  • Distributed algorithms
  • Distributed databases
  • Computer GRID
  • Cloud computing
  • Edge computing
  • Fog computing
  • Management solutions for large volumes of data (big data)
  • Distributed architectures
  • Multiagent systems
  • High-performance distributed systems
  • AI-driven methods for multimodal networks and process modeling

This Special Issue concerns extended research presented during the set of the following conferences: PAAMS, DCAI, PACBB and BLOCKCHAIN.

Manuscript Submission Information

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. Electronics 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 2000 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.
