*********************************************************************

The 9th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking,
ICDCN 2008, will be held at Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India, during
January 5-8, 2008. Over the years, ICDCN (formerly known as IWDC) has
become a leading forum for disseminating the latest research results
in distributed computing and networks. Jadavpur University
(http://www.jadavpur.edu), which hosts ICDCN 2008, is one of the premier
universities in India with faculties in Arts, Sciences, Engineering and
Technology, and is located in the historic and glorious city of Kolkata,
where tradition and modernity blend in harmony.


SCOPE:
-----

Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished results are
solicited in all areas of theory and practice of distributed systems and
networking. ICDCN 2008 will be organized in two tracks - Distributed
Computing and Networking. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

Distributed Computing Track:

1. Communication and Synchronization Protocols
2. Distributed Algorithms and Architectures, their
Analysis and Complexity
3. Distributed Operating Systems, Middleware, Databases
4. Experiments and Performance Measurements in Distributed Systems
5. Fault-tolerance and Self-stabilization
6. High Performance, Cluster and Grid Computing
7. Mutiprocessor and Multicore Architectures and Algorithms
8. Security in Distributed Systems
9. Shared and Transactional Memory, Concurrent Programming
10. Specification and Verification of Distributed Systems

Networking Track:

1. Wireless Networks - Cellular, Ad hoc, Wireless LANs
2. Sensor Networks
3. Mobile, Pervasive and Autonomic Computing
4. Optical, Overlay and Peer-to-Peer Networks
5. Integration of Heterogeneous Wireless and Wireline Networks
6. Internetworking Protocols and Internet Applications
7. Network Reliability, Security and Privacy
8. Resource Management and Quality of Service
9. Performance Modeling and Evaluation
10. Traffic Engineering, Pricing, Capacity Planning and Network Management


PAPER SUBMISSION:
----------------

A submission should report on original research that did not previously
appear in a journal or a conference proceedings and has not been concurrently
submitted to any other conference or journal. Papers should not exceed
twelve single-spaced pages using at least 11-point font and one inch
margins on all sides on A4/Letter size pages, including references, figures,
tables etc. All papers must be submitted electronically through the
submissions link in the conference website. Accepted papers will appear in
a printed proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Some
papers that are judged to have limited merit may be accepted as short papers,
with up to six pages in the proceedings. At the time of submission, authors
should indicate if they wish to have their paper considered as a short paper
if it is not accepted as a full paper. At least one author of each accepted
paper must register and attend the conference.


BEST PAPER AWARD:
----------------

Starting this year, a prize will be given to the paper that is judged by
the Program Committee to be the best on the basis of its content and
presentation. The Program Committee may decline to make the award or decide
to split it.
