Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience

Special Issue on

 Scalable Optimization in Grid, Cloud

and Intelligent Network Computing

Global optimization in large-scale distributed systems requires huge computations for complex objective functions. Conventional global optimization based on stochastic and probability algorithms cannot guarantee an actual global optimum with finite searching iteration. Scalability is a desirable feature for the optimization techniques in highly distributed dynamic environments, where the storage and computing capabilities can be spread over a wide geographical area. Intelligent Networks, such as grids, peer-to-peer, ad-hoc networks, constellations, and clouds enable the flexible routing and charging, advanced user interactions and the aggregation and sharing of geographically-distributed resources from different organization with distinct owners, administrators, and policies. With the advent of intelligent networks, where efficient inter-domain operation is one of the most important features, it is arguably required to investigate novel methods and techniques to enable secure access to data and resources, flexible communication, efficient scheduling, self-adaptation, decentralization, and self-organization.

The special issue will primarily encompass practical approaches that advance research in all aspects of scalable and high performance computing and optimization techniques in intelligent future generation networks. Successful contributions may range from advanced technologies, applications and innovative solutions to global optimization problems in scalable large-scale computing systems to development of methods, conceptual and theoretical models related to scalable HPC applications. We expect that this special issue will draw significant number of submissions, readership, and consequently numerous citations of the published contributions.
