Call for Book Chapters:
The hyper connectivity era is upon us. Intelligence and miniaturization is creeping into the environment. The current and ongoing distribution of storage and processing is likely to move the computer as a standalone system into the background, leaving it as a mere computing device.
Intelligent systems have numerous civilian, homeland security, and military applications; however, all these applications carry certain requirements like communication bandwidth, sensing range, power constraints, stealth requirements prior to managing a centralized command and control. The alternative is distributed and networked coordination, which is proving to be more promising in terms of scalability, flexibility and robustness.
The aim of this book is to provide an internationally respected collection of scientific research of technologies and applications in distributed network intelligence. This book will help in creating interest among researchers and practitioners towards realizing safe and distributed interactive multimedia systems.
Possible chapters might cover, though are not limited to the following:
Next generation networks (NGN)
Scalability and manageability of network architectures
Ad-Hoc, Sensor, Vehicle networks
Mobile multimedia devices
Emerging computation business models
Autonomic and dependable communications
Self Organizing networks
Brain-like networking and computing
Identity and location in mobile environments
Surveillance, Home monitoring
Data protection strategies
Security in virtualization approach
Architectural support for security
Collaborative Internet attack containment
Security, privacy, and dependability
Security in cooperative networks
Visualization of network behavior
Multi-technology semantic integration (sensors, e-health, geosensing, etc)
Social networks, Medical and health applications
Each manuscript must be written in a tutorial style of chapters concerning the development process of complex distributed networked systems and services, thus revisiting the difficult issue of knowledge engineering of such systems.
The submission of all documents is to be done directly via email to the Editor. A proposal for book chapter is needed as soon as possible from prospective authors before submitting the full chapter.
