The aim of this special issue is to document new frontiers in architecting dependable multi-paradigm computing systems operating in complex environments. This special issue will therefore outline the challenges for the forthcoming generation of software-enabled systems exploiting multiple computing paradigms (including cloud-computing, edge/fog-computing, IoT, CoT, AI) using suitable software architecture solutions. This special issue will contribute with methodologies, techniques, and tools that software architects and engineers need in order to ensure that the software architecture of these systems will be adaptable, evolvable, verifiable, meet the functional and nonfunctional requirements for operating in complex ecosystems by ensuring a dependable interaction and not prevailing over human needs.

Topics of interest related to architecting the upcoming generation of software-enabled multi-paradigm systems include, but are not limited to:
- Principles of software architecture
- Requirements traceability and links to software architectures
- Architectural design, analysis and evaluation
- Architecture-centric process models and frameworks
- Design patterns, styles and tactics, reference architectures, viewpoints and views
- Model-driven engineering approaches
- Models at runtime
- Verification and Validation
- Risk assessment and mitigation
- Software architectures for service-based distributed systems
- Software architectures for reconfigurable and self-adaptive systems
- Software architectures for ultra-large scale systems, long-lived systems and systems-of-systems
- Software tools and environments for architecture-centric software engineering
- Software architecture and agile practices (e.g., CI/CD and DevOps)
- Software architecture in specific areas of interest such as the cloud/edge-cloud, big data, blockchain, digital twins, CPS, IoT, CoT, AI-based systems and integration of these paradigms
- Industrial applications, case studies, best practices and experience reports
- Empirical studies, systematic literature reviews and mapping studies
