Special Issues
Special Issue on Blockchain for Industrial Data security
Submission Date: 2020-08-01

Nowadays, data plays a vital role in human society, and the massive demand for real data in various aspects of our life has led to an information explosion. Information derived from data mining serves our lives more effectively and conveniently. Industrial data is considered as a powerful resource that can influence multi-disciplinary research and government and business performance. However, while data is providing us with high productivity, some security issues are existing at the same time. Moreover, Blockchain has been emerging as a potential technology to disrupt traditional database systems. Over the past decade, it has found numerous applications in Industrial IoT, healthcare, supply chains, digital copyrights management, and so on, and is becoming a hot research area. This new technology has significantly changed the way data access, storage, retrieval, and information discovery. It presents many fundamental research challenges for the management of data in the Blockchain. This special issue aims to provide a platform to the researchers and practitioners from both academia as well as industry to meet and share knowledge and results in theory, methodology, and applications of Blockchain and data security aspect, including data storage security management, fault tolerance, query processing, information discovery, transaction management, security, and privacy. We encourage papers that apply ideas and techniques from different areas to understand the problems and challenges in Blockchain and data security. We also welcome papers that report novel systems and application concerns about Blockchain and data security. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: Industrial Data security and Privacy in Blockchain Industrial Blockchain data management security Information retrieval security on Blockchain Industrial Data mining and knowledge discovery security on Blockchain Query processing on Blockchain Transaction security on Blockchain Smart contract and distributed ledger Innovative applications driven by Blockchain Industrial Data access secure control based on Blockchain Privacy-Enhancing Models and Technologies

Special Issue on Smart Mobility Management and 5G/Beyond 5G (B5G) Wireless Access
Submission Date: 2020-11-10

The world’s population growth and increased urbanization are significant trends in the formation of tomorrow’s society. Estimates show that more than 85% of the developed world’s population will be living in a relatively small number of big cities by 2025, and the world’s population will reach 11.2 billion people by 2100, even with the slower population growth. The ever-growing population and expected agglomeration in big cities will increase vehicles on the roads and deteriorate urban mobility and traffic-related situations, such as congestion and safety. With the ever-increasing demand for more efficient and safer mobility in large urban centers, reliable and distributed wireless services will be required to support intelligent transportation systems, smart mobility, and infotainment services for high mobile users in public and private transportation networks towards efficient, green, safe and enjoyable urban mobility. This vision requires a more pervasive and ubiquitous wireless access and networking core technologies for the provisioning of highly reliable and ultra-low latency services for interoperable communication and multimedia content distribution in smart mobility applications. With huge improvements over the past generations, upcoming 5G networks have tremendous potential to satisfy highly dynamic traffic and stringent delay requirements of rich and heterogeneous mobile services and intelligent transportation systems. However, it will require the high-density deployment of a large number of small base stations, which will bring many open issues to be addressed, including the design of mobility-enabled resource management for small cells, multimedia content cache and delivery on the 5G network edge, efficient D2D communication, and architectures for interoperable communication among heterogeneous mobile entities. Thus, the aim of this JPDC special issue is to provide state-of-the-art solutions for smart mobility and mobility management in 5G/B5G networks. This special issue seeks high-quality and original technical contributions in the field of mobility management and 5G/Beyond 5G (B5G) wireless access to efficiently support the vision of smart mobility and mobile services for urban computing. Submissions will be judged on their originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and technical correctness. Submitted papers must not be under consideration in any other venue(s). Potential topics include, but are not limited to: Modeling, analysis and characterization of urban mobility Data analytics for smart mobility services Data analytics for 5G-enabled intelligent transportation systems 5G/B5G-enabled mobile cloud and edge computing for mobile applications Architectures, techniques and applications of 5G/B5G-enabled mobile intelligent edge cloud Machine learning algorithms and systems for 5G-enabled edge computing Radio technologies for high mobility transportation systems Information-centric networking architectures for 5G mobile services Mobility-assisted content caching on 5G small cells Mobility-assisted protocols for efficient D2D communication Architectures, protocols and algorithms for efficient interconnection of smart mobile objects Mobility-enabled resource management on 5G networks AI-based modeling and analysis for 5G mobile communications 5G-enabled multimedia-based smart mobility applications Mobility management and crowdsourcing for smart cities and ITS Mobility management for connected cars Hand-over management and predictive models
