Call for Papers: Intelligent Collaboration under Internet of Things and Mobile Edge Computing


With the exponential growth of data, due to ubiquitous portable devices, machine to machine communications, and novel user-centric applications, the demands for a new computing paradigm is increasing. The large pool of traditional cloud resources and services has contributed to the development of society. However, state-of-the-art cloud computing turns into a problem for communication-intensive applications, which need to meet the delay requirements. The problem becomes more intense as the huge application of the Internet of Things. Mobile Edge Computing which processes data at the nearest available nodes is emerging as very promising computation architecture to handle ever-increasing demands. It aims to enable the millions of connected mobile devices to execute the real-time applications directly at the network edge, and provides sufficient mobility support.

However, there are several challenges should be solved before we can enjoy the benefits of Intelligent Collaboration. For examples, there problems include the heterogeneity of kinds of devices, the deployment of services and applications, and the task allocation and offloading, as well as resource management. Hence, this Special Issue will bring together leading researchers and developers to explore recent advanced technologies for IoT and mobile edge computing, especially system, service and application.
