CFP: Special Issue on AI-driven Sustainable Cloud/Edge System, deadline extension

Special Issue on AI driven Sustainable Cloud/Edge System in Sustainable Computing: Informatics and Systems (SUSCOM) journal


It is essential to broadly make intelligence an integral part of every sustainable computing work, but more importantly in cloud/edge systems due to their inherent closeness to the physical world we live in. With that in mind, we see extensive research on intelligence in cloud/edge systems, which has manifested itself in the development of exciting new systems including those that improve efficiency, reduce cost, optimize sustainability or bring new business venues to bear. Additionally, and although more mature Artificial Intelligence (AI) work targeting sustainable cloud/edge system is out there, there is a need for incredibly more. Hence this proposed special issue, which aims to bring together academic researchers, industry practitioners, and individuals working in related areas to bring their state-of-the-art research ideas, concepts, views, latest findings, and results and share them with the community at large. Both theoretical and empirical studies are encouraged.

Topics and submission system are available on the special issue web site.
