Manuscripts can be submitted continuously until the deadline. Once a
paper is submitted, the review process will start immediately. Accepted
papers will be published continuously in the journal. All accepted
papers will be listed together in an online Special Issue published in
the journal website. Articles from this Special Issue will appear in
different regular issues of the journal, though they will be clearly
marked and branded as Special Issue articles.

Submission Deadline: 15 September 2019

The pervasive presence of data originating from the coupling of mobile
technologies and wireless networks, urban and socio-physical systems,
industrial equipment and people, has led to massive data distribution at
the edge of the networked environments and to an increasing interest in
solutions which provide efficient and distributed data management. At
the core of this vision lies the emergence of data-driven networks and
cyber-physical systems saturated with pervasive sensing, computing, and
wireless communication capabilities that ideally support the needs of
individuals, societies and industries.

In this context, the emerging concept of Data Distribution in the
Pervasive and Industrial Internet is increasingly being recognized as a
systematic conceptual framework for designing, testing, and analyzing
systems and algorithms that support the upcoming cyber-physical
convergence. Submissions to this Special Issue can be analytical,
empirical, technological, methodological, or a combination of those.
Contributions on strong data-oriented systems engineering backed by
solid and appropriate evaluations are strongly encouraged. The impact of
the contributions should be demonstrated in the context of the
data-related aspects in the pervasive and industrial internet.

Research contributions are solicited in all application areas pertinent
to industrial and pervasive data distribution, including but not limited

Data distribution in the pervasive internet, where the ambient
intelligence of network devices embedded in the environment, as well as
urban and socio-physical analytics can facilitate a constant and
unobtrusive data management and distribution. Indicative areas of
interest include:

- Data distribution and management in the pervasive internet
- Clouds, cloudlets, fog computing, device-to-device coordination
- Smart spaces and intelligent environments supporting distributed data
- Data-enabled mobile and wearable sensing and computing
- Cognitive computing techniques on the edge of data-intensive networks
- Data-oriented social cyber-physical computing and human in the loop
- Data-focused crowdsensing and user analytics
- Data privacy and security preserving algorithms and techniques in the
pervasive internet

Data distribution in the industrial internet, where intelligent entities
can exchange and manage distributed data in order to achieve improved
performance for both the cyber and the physical components. Indicative
areas of interest include:

- Data distribution and management in the industrial internet
- Networking protocol stacks and standardization for efficient data
- Data distribution with industrial cloud and edge computing
- Data-oriented networked control, distributed optimization, and
distributed learning
- Data-driven industrial internet robotics and autonomous systems
- Data-intensive cyber-physical processes and networks
- Data distribution solutions which satisfy the Industry 4.0
- Data privacy and security preserving algorithms and techniques in the
industrial internet
