                Special Issue on Models and Protocols for Digital Ecosystems

                                               Springer Computing Journal





Digital Ecosystems are an emerging paradigm capturing the behavior of 

large-scale collaborating communities on the global ICT infrastructure. 

Such behavior includes critical features like dynamicity of coalitions, 

different data access paradigms (including the ones known as “big data”), 

vulnerability to new types of attacks and support for innovative value 

generation and sharing.


This special issue is open to researchers from both academia and industry 

working on the Digital Ecosystem paradigm.


Topics of interest include:

1. Models for the design, verification, and validation of functional and 

   non-functional features of ecosystem coalitions.

2. Protocols and interaction techniques suitable for large-scale ecosystem 


3. Design and access frameworks for ecosystem "big data" layers.

4. Value and revenue models for business ecosystems.


Contributions are sought on novel theoretical approaches, as well as on 

practical experiences and experimental results regarding Digital Ecosystems.
