     Special Issue on Models and Protocols for Digital Ecosystems
		      Springer Computing Journal

 Digital Ecosystems are an emerging paradigm capturing the behavior of
 large-scale collaborating communities on the global ICT
 infrastructure.  Such behavior includes critical features like
 dynamicity of coalitions, different data access paradigms (including
 the ones known as "big data"), vulnerability to new types of attacks
 and support for innovative value generation and sharing.
 This special issue is open to researchers from both academia and
 industry working on the Digital Ecosystem paradigm.
 Topics of interest include:

 1. Models for the design, verification, and validation of functional
    and non-functional features of ecosystem coalitions.
 2. Protocols and interaction techniques suitable for large-scale
    ecosystem collaborations.
 3. Design and access frameworks for ecosystem "big data" layers.
 4. Value and revenue models for business ecosystems.
 Contributions are sought on novel theoretical approaches, as well as
 on practical experiences and experimental results regarding Digital
