The International Journal of Distributed Systems and Technologies (IJDST) focuses on integration techniques, methods, and tools employed in applied distributed computing systems, architectures, and technologies. IJDST pays particular attention to this dimension as a means of diversifying and broadening the applicability and scope of knowledge in the area of distributed systems and technologies. This journal is dedicated to push developmental boundaries and publish cutting-edge developments related to science-to-science, science-to-business, business-to-business, business-to-customer, and customer-to-customer interactions.Topics covered by IJDST include but are not limited to the heterogeneity and autonomy of Internet, Web, peer-to-peer, service oriented, grid, next generation grid, next generation technologies and other distributed systems paradigms and concepts; algorithms, software, application, services and technologies integration methods; process, resource, service and data virtualization, sharing, and integration; process, resource, service and resource flow management; scheduling; aspects of quality provision, policies; trust, identity management, forensics and security; application developments centered on the integration and management of various (e-) science-to-science, science-to-business, business-to-business, business-to-customer, and customer-to-customer models.

The mission of the International Journal of Distributed Systems and Technologies (IJDST) is to be a timely publication of original and scholarly research contributions, publishing papers in all aspects of the traditional and emerging areas of applied distributed systems and integration research (including data, agent, and mining technologies) such as next generation technologies, next generation grid, and distributed and throughput computing concepts, as well as related theories, applications, and integrations at various levels. Targeting researchers, practitioners, students, academicians, and industry professionals, IJDST provides an international forum for the dissemination of state-of-the-art theories, practices, and empirical research in distributed systems and prompts future community development as a means of promoting and sustaining a network of excellence.

Editor(s)-in-Chief Biography

Nik Bessis is currently a Head of Distributed and Intelligent Systems (DISYS) research group, a full Professor and a Chair of Computer Science in the School of Computing and Mathematics at University of Derby (full-time), UK. He is also a part-time academic member in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at University of Bedfordshire (UK). He obtained a BA (1991) from the TEI of Athens, Greece, and completed his MA (1995) and PhD (2002) at De Montfort University (Leicester, UK). His research interest is the analysis, research, and delivery of user-led developments with regard to data integration, annotation, and data push methods and services in distributed dynamic environments. These have a particular focus on the study and use of next generation, web-centric, grid and cloud technologies methods for the benefit of various virtual organizational settings including disaster management. He is involved in (more than £2.3m) and leading a number of funded research and commercial projects (more than £0.7m) in these areas. Prof. Bessis has published over 150 papers, won 2 best paper awards and is the editor of several books and the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Distributed Systems and Technologies (IJDST). In addition, Prof. Bessis is a regular reviewer and has served several times as a keynote speaker, conferences/workshops/track chair, associate editor, session chair and scientific program committee member.
