Description & Coverage

The benefits of distributed computing are evidenced by the increased functionality, retrieval capability, and reliability it provides for a number of networked applications. The growth of the Internet into a critical part of daily life has encouraged further study on how data can better be transferred, managed, and evaluated in an ever-changing online environment.

Advancements in Distributed Computing and Internet Technologies: Trends and Issues compiles recent research trends and practical issues in the fields of distributed computing and Internet technologies. The book provides advancements on emerging technologies that aim to support the effective design and implementation of service-oriented networks, future Internet environments, and building management frameworks. Research on Internet-based systems design, wireless sensor networks and their application, and next generation distributed systems will inform graduate students, researchers, academics, and industry practitioners of new trends and vital research in this evolving discipline.


The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Cloud-Based Applications
  • Indoor Sensor Networks
  • IPTV Challenges and Solutions
  • Multiple Source, Multiple Destination Network Tomography
  • Next Generation Mobile Networks
  • Publish/Subscribe Techniques for P2P Networks
  • Service Provision Evolution
  • Time-Critical Wireless Sensor Networks
