Call For Papers

Distributed Complex Systems (e.g., Systems of Systems - SoSs) are gaining momentum due to the widespread adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and the increasing interest for smart cities, digital twins, and industrial cyber physical systems. The heterogeneity and large scale of these systems require novel design techniques, architectures and software infrastructures able to integrate independent (sub)systems to support their seamless cooperation and to address their emergent behaviours.
In addition, the continuous servicing process enabled by the recent micro-services paradigm leads to rely on evolving approaches able to anticipate, mitigate, or react to unplanned scenarios.

Each part of a Distributed Complex System can both exist as an independent entity and become part of wider systems when needed.

This vision radically changes the notion of "integrated" system:
(a) (sub)systems offer limited inter-action capabilities and little possibility to be governed by other entities;
(b) cooperation can be ad-hoc and only needed in specific cases or conditions;
(c) in many cases there is no prior, complete, knowledge of the (sub)systems;
(d) the behaviour can be partially unplanned to follow environment or requirement changes.

The goal of this Special Issue is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on the design, the development, the validation, and the continuous maintenance of Distributed Complex Systems (e.g., SoSs, MultiAgent Systems, Adaptive Systems, Ambient Intelligent Systems).

Indeed, topics on dynamic modules integration, autonomous reaction to unplanned or dynamic scenarios, or dynamic evolution of operational and managerial assets are in the scope of this special issue.
