Preamble: 
With ICT pervading everyday objects and infrastructures, the ‘Future Internet’ is envisioned to leap towards a radical transformation from how we know it today (a mere communication highway) into a vast hybrid network seamlessly integrating knowledge, people and machines as techno-social ecosystems whose behaviour transcends the boundaries of today’s engineering science. From self-reconfiguring manufacturing plants and self-stabilizing energy grids to self-deploying emergency taskforces – such ecosystems relying on a myriad of mobile devices, software agents and human users will be spontaneously deployed through eNetworks on the sole basis of local rules and peer-to-peer communication. This trend is driving a much needed radical transformation of the energy sector metamorphosed into a pervasively adaptive ecosystem of hybrid energy providers in which local microgrids of prosumers (producers and consumers) will interact with large power providers in a coopetition-driven manner. Several technologies are currently racing to production to meet this dream, from ‘smart dust’ to hybrid networks capable to control the emergence of dependable and reliable green and energy-efficient ecosystems – which we generically term the ‘energy web’ – calling for major paradigm shifts highly disruptive of the ways the energy sector functions today.
Scope: 

The EAI Endorsed Transactions on the Energy Web are positioned at the forefront of these efforts as a forum for the most forward looking frontier research undertaken by the international scientific community. We will publish original works reporting on prominent advances that challenge traditional thinking to find solutions to the ongoing energy problems spanning from blackouts to green and alternative energy.

ISSN: 
2032-9393
Scope: 

Growing threats and increasingly also failures due to complexity may compromise the security and resilience of network and service infrastructures. Applications and services require security of data handling and we need new security architectures and scalable and interoperable security policies for this. There is a need to guarantee end-to-end security in data communications and storage, including identity management and authentication. Moreover, we need technology to enable network security monitoring and tracing and to assess the trustworthiness of infrastructures and services. It must ensure the protection of personal data and privacy and to properly assign liability and risks, together with the appropriate governance models needed to do so. Furthermore this is applied to the settings of Public Safety in general.

Scope: 

As the world moves steadily to become a knowledge-based economy, education and learning have never been more important. Technology is playing an increasingly crucial role in the delivery of education, which in turn is driving research into finding ever better technological solutions. Each wave of technological advance has opened new opportunities for teachers and students. First the arrival of personal computers popularized computer aided learning, next the internet introduced eLearning; now the age of intelligent environments is bringing such pedagogical advances as smart classrooms, intelligent campuses, immersive reality, affective learning, mobile learning, intelligent learning clouds and personalised intelligent avatar-like tutors to revolutionize current learning practices, and to challenge the traditional notion of a university or school. Intelligent Environments have been heralded as a technology to radically transform our society, and the nature of teaching and learning. There is an urgent need for a journal that acts as a focus for researchers and practitioners to pool knowledge together and to advance the science and art of teaching, learning, and pedagogical practice, making it more efficient, cost-effective, and fun.

To achieve the above outcomes, this Journal (TOFIEE) will focus on showcasing new technologies that can help to make a difference to teaching and learning experiences, by enriching the learning process and the teaching infrastructure. Central to our forum will be enriched physical and environments such as smart classrooms, virtual / mixed reality environments, intelligent learning clouds or mobile and augmented reality systems that can interact with students and teachers at a pedagogical level, so as to bring true innovations to education. We will also include the systems that support the learning of practical skills, such as those typified by science and engineering laboratories that are critical to students following technology courses. The journal will also include consideration of the wider campus infrastructure which can also impact the cost and effectiveness of education. Examples include smart signage that can guide people around a campus or smart applications for timetabling or managing the environment of the teaching facilities. Education is increasingly global and multicultural in nature and thus, the cultural dimension is a topic we would seek to include.
This Journal will serve as a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest intelligent technologies that can support the development of new educational technologies and environments around the world. Given the multi-disciplinary nature of the areas involved, the journal aims to promote participation from several different communities covering a variety of topics: pedagogical strategies, technical (infrastructure), social-cultural influences; interaction, inclusion, and socialization in intelligent educational environments and systems, etc.

The journal will aim to attract reports on research and development related to a number of areas, including:

  • Smart classrooms;
  • Intelligent campus;
  • Virtual & Mixed Reality Learning Environments;
  • Digitally Enhanced Teaching Laboratories;
  • Technologically supported Pedagogy;
  • Affective Learning;
  • AI Tutoring Systems;
  • Learning clouds;
  • Mobile Learning;
  • Instructional design methods, models and Tools;
  • Smart global and multi-cultural learning environments;
  • Curriculum Development for Intelligent Education systems;
  • Evaluation of intelligent learning environments;
  • Intelligent learning system (cloud ,mobile)
