                       Ad Hoc Networks Journal

Special Issue on Advances and Trends on Cognitive Cyber-Physical Systems


Aims and Scope

The emerging technologies on the Internet of Things, wearable devices,
cloud computing and data analytics offer the potential of acquiring and
processing tremendous amount of data from the physical world. More and more
people are engaged dynamically via multiple, heterogeneous ad hoc networks
while most networks are still running in isolation. It becomes significant
to analyze, understand, and utilize modern heterogeneous ad hoc networks,
in order to provide more intelligent systems and cutting-edge applications
to end users, who are typically dynamically interconnected through wireless
networks. Promising computing paradigms and advanced technologies, relating
to context awareness systems, distributed smart sensing, heterogeneous big
data analytics, condition monitoring,  and deep learning, etc., have been
increasingly developed and integrated into this cyber-physical world.
Despite the related technologies are advancing at an unprecedented pace,
many challenges remain in bridging the cyber and physical worlds. For
-How to acquire and aggregate distributed data across heterogeneous
-How to interpret data with diversified relations from physical-social
-How to establish models, networks, and understandings based on real world
-How to offer intelligent applications and cognitive services to the end
-How to protect privacy among different data sources and networked users?

These critical issues need to be addressed in a holistic and
multidisciplinary way. This issue on advances and Trends on Cognitive
Cyber-Physical Systems・aims at promoting and facilitating exchanges of
research knowledge and findings across different disciplines on the design
and investigation of future generation intelligent cyber physical systems
based on ad hoc network infrastructures. In addition, this issue encourages
and invites researches with great significance and impact on:
1) Addressing the emerging trends and issues on cognitive cyber-physical
systems and services across various application domains.
2) Investigating the challenges posed by the emergent cognitive CPSs on
networking models and services.
3) Providing fundamental theory, model, and methodology in interpreting,
aggregating, processing/analyzing data for intelligent cyber-physical
4) Exploring new functions and technologies to provide adaptive services
and intelligent applications for different end users.
