The boom of cloud technologies and cloud data storage has been a forerunner and enabler to the growth of Big Data. These technologies have substantial advantages over conventional physical deployments. However, better performance and efficiency of data analysis require a clear distinction of the boundaries between the private clouds, public clouds, and Internet of Things (IoT). A common approach to tackle this issue is to develop Big Data in the Cloud to deliver everything as a Service. The projects in this domain regularly exhibit unpredictable, bursting, or immense computing power and storage needs. At the same time, the stakeholders expect swift, inexpensive, and dependable products and project outcomes. The main objective of this special issue is to assort these challenges into different categories and seek the best articles, demonstrations, recommendations and solutions in the following areas: Topics: Innovative Cloud Infrastructure for Big Data Mobile-Driven Cloud Computing Scientific Computing, Data Management and Analytics in Cloud Big Data and Cloud for Enterprise, Government and Society Big Data for Cloud-assisted, IoT-based Cyber-Physical Systems Big Data and Cloud for Improving Resilient Infrastructure Automatic Business Process and Workflow Management in Clouds Multimedia Applications in Mobile Cloud Environments Big Data and Cloud Research and Project Experience in Biomedical, Energy and Environment Control, Service Systems in Tourism, Transportation and Urban Planning, Vertical Markets – Telecom, Sensors, Social Networking, Smart Cities, Food and Agriculture. Case Studies of Big Data Value Creation This special issue will consider substantially extended versions of papers presented at ICBDCC17 – International Conference on Big Data and Cloud Computing (Conference URL: as well as external submissions.

Special Issue on Quality, Reliability and Resilience in Hybrid Information Systems
Submission Date: 2017-09-22

For decades, the ever-increasing requirement for hybrid information and the continual improvement of hybrid information processing have led to different types of hybrid information systems (HISs). Meanwhile, the quality, reliability and resilience (QRR) of HIS is the basis of its large-scale applications in many research domains. To this end, quality, reliability and resilience of hybrid information system has been recognized as a promising technology to facilitate research in information processing, communication networks, internet of things (IoT), etc. Many challenges remain in several aspects of QRR in HIS. First, heterogeneous topologies for hybrid information networks bring technical challenges in design and management of the HIS. Second, in order to manage HIS more effectively, how to measure and analyze the traffic of HIS still needs to be studied. Therein, how to extract various features from hybrid information for content semantic analysis and understanding is an important domain. Third, quality of service necessities for hybrid information causes challenges for big data transmission optimization in HIS. Finally, HIS reliability protection and system resilience enhancement in various environments is one of the bottlenecks restricting large-scale HIS applications. However, resource constraints of HIS increase reliability and resilience concerns related to their utilization in HIS. All these issues need more attention and research today. Likewise, sophisticated and robust mathematical methods are needed in hybrid big data processing. Meantime, emerging architectures which can improve the efficiency of this domain are also encouraged. In light of those challenges, this special issue intends to bring state-of-the-art research and developments in HIS. Researchers are invited to contribute original research articles and comprehensive review articles that seek to understand the various techniques, address those challenges, and provide future improvements in this research domain. Topics of interest include: - Traffic analysis and management of HIS - Emerging technologies in topology management in HIS - Performance analysis of transmission control in HIS - Efficient big data transmission in HIS - Malware behavior analysis in HIS - Demand Side Management in HIS - Privacy management in HIS - Distributed renewable management in HIS - Fault diagnose and processing in HIS - Optimization methods in reliability of HIS - Maintenance Modeling Analysis in HIS - Warranty Modeling Analysis in HIS
