IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine

cloudcomputingmagazine november december2015

IEEE Cloud Computing magazine September/October 2015 issue available

The four articles in this special issue represent the most recent research on the social cloud and the social Internet of Things (SIoT). One article provides an integration approach to these paradigms; another proposes using edge clouds to host social virtual objects (SVOs) to alleviate the problem of scarce resources to manage social relationships; a third presents an overview of SoC research; and the fourth provides a radio access network (RAN) virtualization to facilitate the management of social groups. Read more about this special issue here.

Guest Editors' Introduction

The SIoT brings unprecedented online and offline social experiences to people and is changing our social patterns. The social cloud has the potential to use social relationships to improve resource sharing in social networks. Both fields require more research to, for example, define a generic or unified supporting architecture that can bring various technologies together. These two paradigms are both related to social networks, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things. Therefore, they could potentially support each other, and will likely merge in one way or another. Read more here about the articles and topics in this issue.
