: Special Section: Recent Trends on Computing and Information Systems

This special issue summarizes some the recent trends in the Computing and Information Systems (IS) such as services, technologies, embedded devices and applications, and explores one key area of growth: Computing and Information Systems.  To illustrate the role of Computing Applications and Web Services in the growth of services’ industries, an example focusing on the learning, government and security are used. Recommendations for future areas of research are presented.

The goal of this special issue is to bring together researches and technical reports from the areas of artificial intelligence, databases, social networks, distributed computing, web engineering, data mining, information systems, and others to discuss the latest research trends in computing and IS such as:

  • Embedded systems
  • Modeling and building Web agents
  • Using Web Technologies to solve problems in E-commerce and E-government
  • IS applications, architectures and services

Computing and Web research can benefit from ideas and cross-fertilization with many other areas: Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Databases and Information Systems, Information Retrieval, Multimedia, Distributed Systems, Social Networks and Web Engineering. Many advances within these areas can contribute towards the realization of the Web, Computing and IS.

This special issue will be intended for researchers and practitioners who are interested in issues that arise from using applications technologies of computing and information systems advancements. In addition, such issue is also targeted to anyone who wants to learn more about the computing research advancements in design and applications.

The manuscript must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper was completely re-written or substantially extended (50%). For additional questions please contact the guest editors.
