The special issue is focussed on the current solutions to overcome the challenges of scalability, which includes size scalability, geographical scalability, administrative scalability, network and synchronous communication limitation, etc. The challenges also emerge with the development of recent applications. Hence this proposal has been planned to handle the scalability issues in recent applications.

The researchers, engineers, educators, managers, programmers, and users of computers who have particular interests in parallel processing and/or distributed computing and artificial intelligence are invide to submit original research papers and timely review articles on the theory, design, evaluation, and use of artificial intelligence and parallel and/or distributed computing systems for emerging applications.

The special issue provides an effective forum for communication among researchers and practitioners from various scientific areas working in a wide variety of problem areas, sharing a fundamental common interest in improving the ability of parallel and distributed computer systems, intelligent techniques, deep learning mechanismsand advanced soft computing techniques. It is exepected that the issue will cover a wide range of applications, but with scalable problems that to be solved by perfect hybridization of distributed computing and artificial intelligence.
