Special Issue on Healthcare Informatics and Privacy
Submission Date: 2017-06-01

The digital transformation of healthcare on the Internet has been rapid and explosive. The Internet has enabled transfer and communication of healthcare data but also enabled delivery of healthcare services and apps, connecting patients and healthcare providers together. Digital healthcare ecosystems have evolved on top of cloud platforms, mobile computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as wearable devices distributed across geopolitical and socioeconomic boundaries. While such ecosystems promise a future for universally accessible and more intelligent healthcare, the privacy of patients, doctors, nurses, and healthcare providers is of greater concern today than it was previously. Regulatory compliance requirements such as the US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) support protection of privacy; however, protection and management of healthcare privacy has several challenges and open problems: for example, how does the application of AI and machine learning for healthcare analytics affect privacy? How can anonymization of genomic and healthcare data be carried out to preserve utility while protecting privacy? How can we protect healthcare devices from leaking sensitive healthcare data? How do we develop the next generation of privacy policies and regulatory compliance regimes? This special issue on healthcare informatics and privacy will address theoretical and applied research related to the privacy, security and compliance of Internet-specific healthcare data, transactions, apps, services and systems. The issue will be interdisciplinary in nature, welcoming any research related to healthcare informatics and privacy. Relevant topics include but are not limited to theoretical and applied aspects of the following: 1.Health data and protected health information (PHI) - security of healthcare data, such as electronic health records and schemas; - encryption schemes, key management, homomorphic encryption, and its applications; - anonymization and de-anoymization of structured and unstructured data, as well as genomic graphs; and - privacy-preserving integrity techniques for healthcare data. 2.Regulatory healthcare compliance - HIPAA compliance and European Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR); - challenges and issues regarding implementation of compliance; and - automation of compliance, security, and privacy requirements. 3.Healthcare services, systems, and infrastructure - security and privacy for healthcare services on clouds, mobile, and IoT; and - transactions and blockchains.

Special Issue on Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
Submission Date: 2017-08-07

With the recent advances in wireless communication technologies, connected and autonomous vehicles are becoming a cornerstone of the increasingly connected world. Although Internet technologies brought intelligent vehicles innovative services and applications that change the way how people live, work, and entertain, supporting the real-time, safety, stability, reliability, and security requirements of connected vehicular applications is difficult because of the nature of vehicle mobility. As connected and autonomous vehicles become one of the largest mobile cyber-physical systems, extraordinary research challenges are emerging in many areas, including environment perception, edge data analytics, computing platforms, architecture design, cybersecurity, and privacy protection. The connected and autonomous vehicle research field has been a highly active area of research, development, standardization, and field trials. Throughout the world, many national and international projects in government, industry, and academia are devoted to connected vehicles or autonomous driving vehicles. Multiple relevant industry standards and consortia are being created to prepare for the maturity of these emerging technologies. This special issue intends to disseminate the latest research results in this exciting research area of connected and autonomous vehicles, providing a snapshot of the current state of the art in such advanced systems. Submitted papers should focus on the general theme of Internet computing. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the following: - (semi-)automated vehicles; - autonomous/intelligent robotic vehicles; - vehicle environment perception; - cooperative driving and cooperative vehicle-infrastructure systems; - vehicle-to-infrastructure and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2I/V2V) communication; - wireless in-car networks; - vehicle system architecture and design; - vehicular Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure; - intelligent vehicle software and computing infrastructure; - edge data analytics for vehicular systems; - cloud computing applications for vehicular systems; - geographic information systems (GIS) or intelligent transportation systems (ITS) applications for intelligent vehicles; - security and privacy issues and protection mechanisms; - cyber-physical system modeling; and early experience and field trials of connected and autonomous vehicles.

Special Issue on Evolution of Rack-Scale Systems
Submission Date: 2017-10-13

In just the past few years, advances in software and hardware technology have enabled new computing paradigms and new applications making use of rack-scale computing environments. These include super-fast interconnects, new memory devices and architectures, and ever-changing software models. For instance, we recently witnessed a strong shift from virtual machines to containers as the model for deploying software in shared environments. This special issue will include papers from both industry and academia that encompass the recent evolution of rack-scale systems, in the context of Internet computing. Topics include (but are not limited to) the following: 1.Applications and use cases - data-intensive analytics and graph processing - financial, medical, and transportation scenarios 2.Systems software stack - operating systems - virtual machines (VMs), containers, unikernels and microservices - persistency libraries and inter-process communication (IPC) stacks 3.Architecture - memory/storage architectures - switches, routers, and software-defined networking - accelerators 4.Technologies - nonvolatile memory - photonic interconnects - system on a chip 5.Characteristics - security - reliability (such as erasure coding) - scale and performance
