                                         Special Issue on

                   Distributed Learning and Blockchain Enabled
                  for Next Generation of Big Data Driven Cyber-Physical


Aims and Scope
Modern Cyber-Physical System (CPS) is composed by integrating and
networking the physical world, computational components, and
devices such as sensors, actuators, etc. Typical CPS applications include
autonomous driving systems, smart home, robotics systems, smart healthcare
etc. With the prevalence of CPSs, the huge volume of ever-increasing data
produced by heterogeneous IoT devices raise crucial challenges in both
architectures and data management. First, traditional centralized CPSs have
the shortcomings of destitute transparency and scalability, making it
to scale with the ever-increasing volume of data generated across CPSs.
Moreover, CPSs are often associated with sensitive data, while their
infrastructures expose them to vulnerability, data breaches, and denial of

Therefore, the decentralized CPS infrastructure becomes a potential
solution, in particular, it is essential to explore new big data processing
with decentralized CPS infrastructures.

Distributed learning and blockchain techniques, envisioned as the bedrock
of future intelligent networks and IoT technologies, have attracted
attentions from both academy and industry due to the nature of
decentralization, data security, and privacy benefits. The decentralized
together with the ability to enable secured, trusted and decentralized
autonomous ecosystems, revolutionize increasingly centralized CPSs for
and applications, as well as reshaping of traditional data mining and
knowledge discovery patterns. However, adopting distributed learning and
technologies in big data driven CPS applications requires essential
insights with respect to concrete application domains, scalability, privacy
performance, and financial benefits as well.

Topics may include (but are not limited to):

⠂ Data and transaction management on blockchain in CPSs
⠂ Distributed data analytics in blockchain enabled CPSs
⠂ Data mining and knowledge discovery over distributed learning in CPSs
⠂ Novel distributed learning models with strict resource constraints in CPSs
⠂ Distributed learning for emerging applications in CPSs
⠂ Data security, privacy and trust on distributed learning and blockchain
in CPSs
⠂ Distributed learning and blockchain in cloud/edge/fog computing for CPSs
⠂ Distributed learning and blockchain based lightweight data structure for
CPS data
⠂ Big data algorithms, tools and services using distributed learning and
blockchain technologies in CPSs
⠂ Performance optimization and energy efficiency for distributed learning
and blockchain enabled big data applications in CPSs
