Special Issue Information

The advent of fifth generation communication systems, known as the 5G reality Internet of Things (IoT) concept. Consequently, a series of smart applications are forming based on the integrating of IoT technology, smart sensors, and different computing schemes and such as smart agriculture, smart healthcare, smart homes/cities, smart retail, etc. to enhance the quality of life for humanity. However, these applications are facing several issues such as service response time, quality of service (QoS) guarantees, energy consumption, privacy, and security. To address these problems, some recent studies have proposed implementing artificial intelligence (AI) at the edge of networks and forming the Intelligent Edge concept. As a result, this helps reduce service response time, saving energy, and computing costs and improving overall performance. However, it's still several problems when integrating AI into the edge of the network. Traditional AI techniques are deployed on powerful servers with centralized training data while Edge devices with resources-constrained. 

Therefore, this Special Issue (SI) is dedicated to IoT-based smart applications and/or advanced computing technologies such as Cloud/Fog/Edge, and Big Data analysis, modern AI techniques. The topics include but are not limited to: 
- Smart IoT ecosystems such as smart healthcare, smart grids, smart agriculture, smart homes/cities to enhance the quality of life for humanity. 
- Modern AI Techniques 
- Internet of Vehicles/Intelligent Transportation Systems 
- Edge/Fog/Cloud Computing Schemes for IoT systems 
- Ad Hoc Communication Technologies 
- Big Data Analytic Techniques 
- IoT-based Applications 
- Smart Healthcare/Smart Agriculture 
- Security and Privacy of Advanced Networks 

Importance of topic to JAIT readers 

Nowadays, intelligence edge is an emerging topic, attracting the interest of both industry and academia. The integration of AI into the edge of the network can provide unprecedented new abilities and capabilities for the Internet and humanity, hence, related studies in this domain are expected to have great attention and interest to readers and are high citation.

Manuscript Submission Information

Authors can submit their manuscripts through the Online Submission System. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to guest editors for perusal first.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts is available on the Author Submission Guide page.
The Article Processing Charge for this special issue is 500 USD. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
