New trends seen in cloud computing in the last couple of years include: computing at the edge of the network outside centralized data centers, using heterogeneous processors, such as hardware accelerators in the cloud for making applications execute faster, using lightweight deployment strategies, such as containers and unikernels, in transient environments, ecosystems built on containers that enable more abstraction, and novel applications finding new generation clouds to satisfy their requirements.

Definitions, architectures and approaches that are relevant to the current generation of clouds will evolve significantly to accommodate the emerging paradigms that rely on the cloud. Future clouds will therefore need to address new challenges related to scalability, management, reliability, sustainability, heterogeneity and security. Addressing these challenges naturally paves way for new cloud trends, directions and research. 

This special issue welcomes research in all avenues of the next generation cloud computing, but are not limited to:
Infrastructure – hardware, middleware and software
Architectures – emerging distributed and decentralized clouds using fog/edge, serverless computing, blockchain technologies and container technologies
System – programming models, algorithms, virtualization technologies, hardware accelerators, and runtime systems
Management – scheduling, resource scaling, deployment, monitoring, benchmarking, and metering
Application – novel applications in machine and deep learning, mobile apps, IoT, smart cities, health care

​Prospective authors are encouraged to express their interest to the corresponding guest editor.
