Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will primarily focus on addressing the challenges encountered in deploying and developing smart computing applications using the serverless paradigm. As we know,  serverless computing, also known as ‘Function as a Service’ (FaaS), has gained significant momentum in recent times and is deemed the next-generation cloud service delivery paradigm. Serverless computing will help users and developers smoothly and seamlessly deploy their applications, such as sensor-based technologies, the Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, edge computing, big data analytics, machine learning, cognitive computing, and artificial intelligence, in smart computing environments. All the service providers of the major league, i.e., Amazon, Google, Microsoft, have successfully launched commercially usable serverless computing platforms. Although the services are commercially available and functional, several unresolved and challenging issues persist.

  • Serverless Computing;
  • Function-as-a-Service;
  • Internet-of-Things;
  • Smart Service;
  • Cyber Physical Service;
  • Smart sensors.

Sensors are an essential entity in IoT and smart service environments. The stateless functions can be useful to easily deploy and perform computation for IoT and smart services. Therefore, this Special Issue can be appropriate of the Sensors journal.
