Convergence computing describes the convergence of a variety of technologies, including wireless communications, ubiquitous computing, cloud-based services, mobile devices, intelligent systems that combine to create new and added-value personalized, location-independent and intelligent applications, platforms and services for users.
Increasingly, convergence computing involves the gathering of large amounts of real time data. This presents considerable challenges including the need for better data storage and collection solutions capable of handling these large volumes of data and the development of powerful knowledge-based techniques to handle that data.
The aim of this theme issue is to explore the field of convergence computing by focusing on a wide range of themes relevant to convergence computing.
We welcome original contributions including application-oriented, methodological, technological and review papers relevant to convergence computing.


Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
Convergence computing
Human-computer interaction
Search-based software engineering
Social data mining technologies
IoT networking
Convergence in the Internet of Things
Mobile intelligence and wearable computing
Visualization and Hadoop big-data
Ubiquitous intelligence
Machine Learning
