International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking

ICDCN is a premier international conference dedicated to addressing advances in Distributed Computing and Communication Networks. Over the years, ICDCN has become a leading forum for disseminating the latest research results in these fields. As in the past, ICDCN 2013 will be organized in two tracks: Distributed Computing and Networking, and will comprise a highly selective technical program consisting of refereed concise papers, panel discussions as well as focused workshops on emerging topics.

Papers describing original research work and practical experiences/experimental results are solicited on topics including, but not limited to:

Distributed algorithms & concurrent data structures: design, analysis, and complexity

Integration of heterogeneous wireless & wired networks

Distributed operating systems

Internetworking protocols & Internet applications

Distributed database systems

 Mobile and pervasive computing, context-aware distributed systems

Embedded distributed systems

Next generation & converged network architectures

Experiments and performance evaluation of distributed systems

Overlay & peer-to-peer networks and services

Fault-tolerance, reliability, and availability

 Home Networking & Services

Multiprocessor & multi-core architectures & algorithms

 Resource management & quality of service

Self-organization, self-stabilization, & autonomic computing

Network security & privacy

High performance computing, grid computing, & cloud computing

 Energy-Efficient Networking & Smart Grids

Security, cryptography, & game theory in distributed systems

Sensor, PAN & ad-hoc networks


Traffic engineering, pricing, network management

Submission Instructions:

Submitted papers must not exceed 15 LNCS  pages.  The page limit includes title, abstract, figures and references. Additional details may be included in a clearly-marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee.

All papers must use at least 10-point Times Roman font and be formatted as per the “LNCS style”. Submissions deviating from these guidelines will not be reviewed. Accepted submissions will be published by Springer in the LNCS series. More details about LNCS formatting styles are available at: LNCS-Web.

Some papers not accepted as regular papers  maybe accepted as "Concise papers" with  5 LNCS  pages in the proceedings while full papers will be allowed 15 LNCS pages.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper. Papers should be submitted via the EasyChair submission management System at: Selected papers from the Distributed Computing Track will be published in a special issue of Theoretical Computer Science (TCS). Selected papers from the Networking Track will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier Pervasive & Mobile Computing (PMC) journal.
