As the data volumes continue to increase and the ways of information dispersion across the globe continue to diversify, new scalable methods and structures are needed for efficiently processing those distributed and autonomous data. Grid computing, P2P technology, distributed information retrieval technology, and networking technology all must be merged to address the scalability concern.

The scope of the journal includes:

  • Scalable distributed information systems
  • Scalable grid information systems
  • Parallel information processing and systems
  • Web information searching and retrieval
  • Data mining
  • Content delivery networks (CDN)
  • VLDB
  • P2P systems
  • Scalable mobile and wireless database systems
  • Large scale sensor network systems
  • Index compression methods
  • Architectures for scalability
  • Scalable information system applications
  • Evaluation metrics for scalability
  • Information security


Information systems, scalability, distributed systems, parallel processing, CDN, VLDB, P2P, mobile computing, sensor networks, information security.
