Call for Papers

Scope and Background

The 11th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing (IDC 2017) will be held from 11 to 13 October 2017 in Belgrade, Serbia. The main objective of the IDC series of symposiums is to provide a forum for the dissemination of research accomplishments in the emergent field of Intelligent Distributed Computing, as well as to promote the collaboration between researchers from Intelligent Computing and Distributing Computing communities. Intelligent Computing covers a hybrid palette of methods and techniques ranging from classical artificial intelligence, computational intelligence and multi-agent systems to game theory. Distributed Computing develops methods and technology to build complex computational systems composed of collaborating software components scattered across diverse computational elements. The emergent field of Intelligent Distributed Computing focuses on the development of a new generation of intelligent distributed systems. It faces the challenges of adapting and combining research in the fields of Intelligent Computing and Distributed Computing. The symposium welcomes submissions of original papers on all aspects of intelligent distributed computing ranging from concepts and theoretical developments to advanced technologies and innovative applications. For its first time in Serbia, IDC 2017 will continue the successful tradition of previous IDC symposiums by providing a platform for researchers and practitioners to report recent trends and results highlighting benefits of intelligent computing techniques for distributed systems and vice-versa. IDC 2017 will consist of regular sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international program committee, as well as of special sessions focused on multi-disciplinary and cutting-edge topics.

Submission and Evaluation of Papers

Paper acceptance and publication will be judged on the basis of their relevance to the symposium themes, clarity of presentation, originality and accuracy of results and proposed solutions. All accepted papers will be included in the Symposium Proceedings, which will be published by Springer as part of the series Studies in Computational Intelligence. Submissions must conform to Springer’s style for Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes and should not exceed 10 pages. Submissions and reviews will be handled by Easychair (to be specified on the website). An author of an accepted paper must register to IDC 2017 in order to have the paper published. Each accepted paper must be presented at the symposium by one of the authors. Authors of the best papers presented in the Symposium will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers in the following Journals:
