Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Software-defined cloud computing is an emerging field that has gained significant attention in recent years. It involves the use of software-defined technologies to manage and orchestrate cloud resources such as computing, storage, and networking. This approach enables the creation of highly automated, flexible, and dynamic cloud infrastructures that can adapt to changing workloads and business requirements. The software-defined approach also enables the implementation of advanced management and security features, as well as the integration of multiple cloud platforms and services.

In this Special Issue, we aim to bring together the latest research advances and prospects in software-defined cloud computing. We invite original research papers, reviews, and case studies that address topics including (but not limited to):

  • Software-defined cloud infrastructure design and deployment;
  • Cloud resource management and orchestration using software-defined approaches;
  • Security, privacy, and compliance issues in software-defined cloud computing;
  • Interoperability and integration of multiple cloud platforms and services;
  • Performance optimization and energy efficiency in software-defined cloud computing;
  • Applications and use cases of software-defined cloud computing in various domains such as healthcare, finance, and education.

We welcome papers that present novel theoretical and practical contributions, as well as papers that provide insights into real-world deployments and experiences. Submissions will undergo a rigorous peer-review process, and accepted papers will be published in a high-quality Special Issue of the journal.

Dr. Ting Wang
Guest Editor

Eye fatigue has a fatiguing effect on the eye muscles, and eye movement performance is a macroscopic response to the eye fatigue state. To detect and prevent the risk of eye fatigue in advance, this study designed an eye fatigue detection experiment, collected experimental data samples, and constructed experimental data sets. In this study, eye-tracking feature extraction was completed, and the significance difference of eye-tracking features under different fatigue states was discussed by two-way repeated-measures ANOVA (Analysis of Variance). The experimental results demonstrate the feasibility of eye fatigue detection from eye-tracking signals. In addition, this study considers the effects of different feature extraction methods on eye fatigue detection accuracy. This study examines the performance of machine learning algorithms based on manual feature calculation (SVM, DT, RM, ET) and deep learning algorithms based on automatic feature extraction (CNN, auto-encoder, transformer) in eye fatigue detection. Based on the combination of the methods, this study proposes the feature union auto-encoder algorithm, and the accuracy of the algorithm for eye fatigue detection on the experimental dataset is improved from 82.4% to 87.9%.
