The Science Partner Journal Intelligent Computing is now seeking submissions for a special issue, Graph Computing.


Graph computing has been applied in a multitude of domains (e.g., biology and pharmacy) because of its ability to analyze the relationships between the input data. As this field is becoming increasingly integrated into our daily lives, there is a significant amount of interest among different communities in improving graph computing, and various novel software and hardware solutions have been proposed. Besides, multiple new technologies for graph computing are emerging. In this special issue of Intelligent Computing, a Science Partner Journal (SPJ), we hope to bring together community research in this area into a curated selection of articles. This special issue allows both Research Articles and Review Articles about graph computing. More detailed submission instructions, e.g., manuscript format and submission guidance, are provided on the “For Authors” page.

Note that the exceptional merits and advantages of this special issue are: very quick publication (less than 2 months after submission, if acceptable), Open Access to widely global readers via various prestigious AAAS & SPJ-enabled pipelines, and no APCs (article processing charges) until 2025.

    Topics of Interest

    This special issue is dedicated to the techniques for graph computing, including software and hardware solutions. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • Efficient hardware and accelerator designs for graph computing
    • Memory, interconnect, and storage architectures for graph computing
    • New IO and memory technologies for graph computing
    • Systems, compilers, HLS, and languages for graph computing at scale
    • Scalable optimization methods for graph computing
    • Testing, debugging, and profiling graph computing applications
    • Performance modeling of graph computing applications
    • Visualization for graph data at scale
