Introduction
Distributed computing (DC) is a field of computer science that studies Distributed Systems (DS). A distributed system is a system whose components are located on different networked computers, which then communicate and coordinate their actions by passing messages to each other. There are a wide range of open problems and challengeable issues in the area of distributed computing. This special Issue will focus on some recent/current problems concerning to distributed computing and systems.

Objective
The purpose of this special issue (SI) is to bring together researchers, practitioners, and decision-makers from academia, industry, the non-profit sectors, and the government, who have expertise in the field of distributed computing and systems in order to share their knowledge. The key objectives include:

• To identify the major challenges in the field of distributed computing and systems.
• To identify who will benefit or negatively will be affected by developing the distributed computing and systems and applications
• To create a basis for future collaboration among scholars and practitioners in the field of distributed computing and systems
• To develop assessment tools and techniques of distributed computing and systems field.
