Distributed computing, especially for computing functions in the network, is beneficial for designing systems in a way that allows for joint optimization of computing and networking resources by aiming for tighter integration of computing and networking. New computing paradigms, e.g., container-based microservices, enable scalable computility and dynamic computing performance and thus improve computing performance and resilience significantly, especially in the presence of dynamic, unpredictable workload changes. On the other hand, with the proliferation of artificial intelligence and the rise of emerging applications, the potential of distributed computing has now been released. The advanced distributed computing frameworks provide an efficient and robust way to facilitate large AI models and deploy them or their components on either data center or edge computing environments. This presents exciting opportunities for innovation in areas such as autonomous driving, smart healthcare, and other intelligent applications.
The motivation of this Special Issue is to discover and promote the current advancements, techniques, innovation and real-world solutions of distributed computing and its applications. It aims to gather a comprehensive range of both quantitative and qualitative research contributions from a diverse array of individual, academic, organizational, and industry practitioners in the evolving field of distributed computing solutions. By exploring the latest advances in distributed computing, this Special Issue seeks to provide valuable insights and innovative approaches to tackle the challenges posed by this rapidly expanding domain.
Topics of interest for the Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Advanced distributed computing architectures, such as edge computing, container-based microservices, and blockchain;
- New optimizations of distributed computing in big data processing and artificial intelligence;
- Innovations and challenges in the synergy between edge computing and cloud computing for intelligent applications;
- Innovative applications and optimizations of distributed systems in blockchain technology;
- Applications of distributed computing in domains like autonomous driving, smart healthcare, smart cities, and intelligent transportation;
- Research on security, privacy, and trust mechanisms in distributed computing;
- Other technologies and applications advocating distributed computing.
