Koji Nakano


The Fifth International Symposium on Networking and Computing (CANDAR 2017) was held in Aomori Japan, from November 19th to 22th, 2017. The organizers of the CANDAR 2017 invited authors to submit the extended version of the presented papers. As a result, 27 articles have been submitted to this special issue. This issue includes the extended version of 16 papers that have been accepted.

This issue owes a great deal to a number of people who devoted their time and expertise to handle the submitted papers. In particular, I would like to thank the guest editors for the excellent review process: Professor Shuichi Ichikawa, Professor Katsunobu Imai, Professor Yasuaki Ito, Professor Yoshiaki Kakuda, Professor Eitaro Kohno, Professor Susumu Matsumae, Professor Toru Nakanishi, Professor Yasuyuki Nogami, Professor Fukuhito Ooshita, Professor Hiroyuki Sato, and Professor Shinya Takamaeda-Yamazaki.

Words of gratitude are also due to the anonymous reviewers who carefully read the papers and provided detailed comments and suggestions to improve the quality of the submitted papers. This special issue would not have been without their efforts.
