INTRODUCTION TO THE SUBJECT AREA
The book with the title of Nature-Inspired Networking (NiN) will contain highly original contributions about how the nature is going to shape networking systems of the future. Hence, it will focus on rigorous approaches and cutting-edge solutions, which encompass three classes of major methods:
- Those that take inspiration from nature for the development of novel problem solving techniques;
- Those that are based on the use of networks to synthesize natural phenomena; and
- Those that employ natural materials (e.g., molecules,) to compute or communicate.
The book’s purpose is to make a formal basis more accessible to researchers, scientists, professionals and students as well as developers and practitioners in ICT by providing them with state-of-the-art research results, applications, opportunities and future trends.
Original contributions will be solicited for the book. In particular, theoretical contributions should be formally stated and justified, and practical applications should be based on their firm formal basis.:
OBJECTIVE OF THE BOOK
The proposed book is preferred to be an advanced reference material for readers who already have a basic understanding of networking and are now ready to know how to develop NiN using rigorous approaches. Hence, theoretical contributions are welcome provided their relevance for how to develop NiN is clear. Reports on applications are welcome provided their formal basis is evident. For keeping a reasonable trade-off between theoretical and practical issues, a careful selection of the chapters will be done, on the one hand, to cover a broad spectrum of formal and practical aspects and, on the other hand, to achieve as much as possible a self-contained book.
Formal and practical aspects will be preferably presented in a straightforward fashion by discussing in detail the necessary components and briefly touching on the more advanced components. Therefore, development should be demonstrated how to use the formal methods for NiN will be described by sound judgments and reasonable justifications.
The book is written for researchers, scientists, professionals and students in computer science and computer engineering as well as developers and practitioners in next-generation network design.
SCOPE OF THE BOOK
Topics of interest range from theory to applications of Nature-Inspired Networking (NiN) based on rigorous interdisciplinary approaches in which theoretical contributions should be formally stated and justified, and practical applications should be based on their firm formal basis.
Recommended topics of the book include, but are not limited to, the following.
* Networking based on Biological Principles:
- Autonomic networking
- Context-aware networking
- Evolutionary networking
* Networking based on Physical Principles:
- Spatial networking
- Amorphous networking
- Massive parallel computing
* Networking based on Social Principles:
- Collision-based networking
- Swam intelligence in networking
- Collective intelligence in networking
- Networking based on chaos and dynamical systems
The list is not restrictive - contributing authors are encouraged to contact the editor before submitting a chapter proposal to determine whether the proposed submission is within the scope of this book.
Potential contributors are invited to submit to the book editor via email on or before September 30, 2015 a 2-3 page chapter proposal (included as an email attachment) clearly explaining the mission and concerns of their proposed chapter. Contributors of accepted proposals will be notified by October 15, 2015 regarding the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by April 30, 2016. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this book project.
This book is scheduled to be published by CRC Press - Taylor & Francis Group, premier publisher of technical and scientific work, reaching around the globe to collect essential reference material and the latest advances and make them available to researchers, academics, professionals, and students in a variety of accessible formats. Its mission is to serve the needs of scientists and the community at large by working with capable researchers and professionals from across the world to produce the most accurate and up to date scientific and technical resources.
