Submissions Due: 15 October 2024

Tentative Publication: January-March 2025

This Special Section on New Tools and Techniques the Distributed Computing Continuum (DCC) will provide a forum for presenting research works from diverse areas from the computing continuum such as distributed scheduling, resource management, cloud-edge computing, workflows management, distributed data analytics and AI techniques in the DCC, and computational science applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Interoperable programming environments for heterogeneous architectures at scale
  • New tools for scalability in the Computing Continuum.
  • Workflow environments for the Computing Continuum.
  • Multicriteria scheduling algorithms for the Computing Continuum.
  • Workload characterization and modelling.
  • Parallel programming in the edge and in the computing continuum.
  • Data management in Edge devices and the computing continuum.
  • Middleware and programming models for processing large-scale data
  • IoT data management and analytics in cloud and serverless models
  • Optimizing I/O with ad-hoc storage systems.
  • Coupling distributed simulations with in-situ data analysis
  • Artificial Intelligence in the IoT-Edge-Cloud continuum.
  • Privacy and trust in the Computing Continuum
  • Large-scale green computing systems to optimize energy in the Computing Continuum
  • Innovative applications and case studies in the Computing Continuum

Submission Guidelines

Submissions to the special section will be received as TPDS regular papers. PLEASE LOOK TPDS Guide for Authors.
