Big Data, IOT and Cloud (BIC) play a diverse role for connecting smart world. IoT is a system of related devices, machines, objects, things that can transfer data over a network without any human or computer interactions. In the case of Internet of Things, a thing may be considered as any living or non-living entity integrated with a smart device such as an integrated chip or sensor that is embedded along with the actual thing. Several organizations worldwide have started to use BIC based systems for smart world in order to accomplish better operational efficiency, better service and better understanding of business and customer needs. It has grown leaps and bounds over the years. Its evolution has been unimaginable from machine to machine communication followed by sensor enabled smart device communication and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems. An BIC based Measurement System is built using smart devices that use smart integrated chips and processors, sensors, and smart hardware that promote smart communication with the cloud environment. As an initial step, typical BIC based measurement systems involve collecting data from several smart input devices such as sensors, antenna and micro-controller enabled devices as the first step. The input data is then collated and the data is transferred using a hub or gateway. This data is further stored in a cloud-based environment and further analyzed and a suitable action is performed through output devices such as human based machines. These Big analytical data, which is stored in the cloud, may also be used for business analytics based applications such as customer relationship management and ERP. The primary benefits of BIC based measurement systems are enhanced usability, better decision making, revenue generation, less time consumption, enhanced customer experience, overall business process monitoring, privacy control, flexible virtual environment for anytime access of data, huge data processing ability etc. The primary benefit of using BIC enabled measurement systems promotes a distributed connected world. Internet of Everything is the connecting component between people, devices or things, data and process. While BIC is more concentrated towards advanced machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, it extends the services by enabling effective and technology aided people-to-people (P2P) communication. Internet has paved the platform for connecting several common computing devices such as desktop computers and laptops. E-banking, e-learning, e-commerce is some essential services that have grown with internet usage. While internet has successfully connected computational devices, it stretched the devices to the next level by empowering a device with additional capabilities so that a common device becomes a connected device and can perform several functions in one device. Typical examples of connected devices are smart phones, smart watches, Google glass etc. that does not just perform the task of the intended device alone but are empowered to act like other devices as well according to the context and need. Several services based on BIC measurement systems such as smart workspace, smart factories, smart health services, smart and connected retail services, smart agriculture and farming, smart connected vehicles, smart education and smart classrooms, smart and efficient manufacturing and logistics, smart business solutions, smart governance and smart services aiding governance and smart connected cities have exploited the services to promote a better and effectively connected world. Several research works are directed towards extending BIC enabled measurement systems by promoting people-to-people interactions along with conventional machine-to-machine communication. This special issue provides an ideal platform to share novel, innovative and interesting ideas and works related to developing BIC enabled measurement systems that promote an ambience for a distributed and connected world.

Special Issue on Natural Language Processing for Digital Library Management
Submission Date: 2020-07-19

The digital library refers to an online system comprising of digital documents that might be in any format like text, image, audio, video, etc. Besides storing digitized content, digital libraries can also organize, search, and retrieve information from the database. An effective Digital Library management system provides secure access, easy retrieval, multi-location & multi-user setup, information organization, and report generation. Therefore, the digital library management (DLM) focuses not only on storage but also on information organization, translation, and retrieval. A digital library can be managed by an individual or by an organization, by enabling cloud-based technologies like retrieving information from any location. However, with the current methodologies, it will not be easy to manage digital libraries due to complexities related to sustainable measures. Thus increasing the need for automated online assistance to manage, retrieve, transfer, and communicate information with human and computer-based language processing techniques. Natural Language Processing (NLP) can be used in a computer to investigate and deduce the meaning of the human language in an efficient manner. NLP plays a vital role in enabling a machine to understand human language and perform tasks such as relationship extraction, sentiment analysis, named entity recognition, and speech recognition. Most of the natural language processing research relies on machine learning methods which include, representation learning, classification learning, and deep neural networks. Hence, the application of NLP in digital library management can enhance the performance of information translation and retrieval. To retrieve a specific file keyword would be enough to recollect the files. We can also generate a keyword tag from a summary or a body of the text. In NLP, speech recognition tends to be a challenging task because of the ambiguity in the language's meaning. If we use the speech recognition tool well, it might be possible to aid visually impaired people well. Extraction of text from images, identifying entities from text files, and more would ease the time needed for finding relevant information, especially for students, teachers, and scholars. From a variety of applications, we can deduce the significance of natural language processing in handling digital libraries. Besides the domination of the digital era, people store all types of files in a cloud database. However, the speed of retrieving information might vary accordingly, which might be handled well with the help of natural language processing. Researchers have been showing tremendous interest in works related to digitized content. Papers are welcomed on the following topics but not confined to: NLP for Information Translation in Digital Environment Smart Analysis of Sentiments through NLP for Document Management NLP for Remote Access E-Resources Security and Privacy Concerns in Innovative Library Practices Overview of NLP: Challenges and Opportunities in Digital Library Automated Language Translation and Grammar Correction for Digital Library System Authentication and Copyright Issues for Digital Library Management Natural Language Toolkit for Virtual Libraries Application of New Management Techniques in Open Access Libraries NLP Algorithm and Interface Design for Smart Digital Library Management System NLP for Digitalization of Traditional Resources: Tools and Techniques

Submission Date: 2020-08-29

From the last few years, we have witnessed a paradigm shift with a major focus on mission critical applications ultra-reliable low latency applications (URLCC) such as AR/VR, autonomous vehicles, e-healthcare, smart education, etc., the aim of which is to provide QoS and QoE to the end users with high reliability and low latency. Starting from driverless vehicles and drone-based deliveries, smart cities and factories, remote medical diagnosis and surgery, and artificial-intelligence-based personalized assistants, there are enormous number of applications around us which require strong network backbone infrastructure for QoS and QoE preservation. In the years to come, 5G and 6G technologies are expected to provide 20 Gbps peak data rate, 100 Mbps data rates at the cell edges, 106 devices per square kilometers, 10 Mbps per square kilometers areal capacity and 1 ms round-trip latency for the aforementioned applications. All these services require high data rate with low latency which can be provided by the upcoming 5G and 6G technologies having strong backbone infrastructure. By making use of Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), and network slicing in 5G, massive MIMO, a huge number of connections between different devices can be made to preserve QoS and QoE for the aforementioned applications. As most of the sensitive data for the aforementioned applications is being transmitted over wireless links so security, privacy and trust management are the key challenges to handle. Also, as more user data and network traffic will be transferred, so the big data security challenges are also of paramount concern in this environment. Although there are many solutions available in the literature to address these issues, but still existing solutions are not sufficient keeping in view of the changes and adaptation in user authentication, privacy preservation and authentication. Hence, secure network architectures, and protocols are required to resolve the aforementioned issues. Hence, this special issue solicits contributions from the academicians, researchers, and practioners to submit their valuable findings with below mentioned topics which are not limited to the following Security Architectures for URLCC in 5G and Beyond Access Control policies for URLCC in 5G and Beyond Security Protocols for URLCC in 5G and Beyond Data and networks Protection for URLCC in 5G and Beyond Physical Layer Security for URLCC in 5G and Beyond Big Data Security for URLCC in 5G and Beyond Security and trust management for URLCC in 5G and Beyond Privacy preservation for URLCC in 5G and Beyond
