Intelligent computing is a quite mature field of information and
communication technology covering a hybrid palette of methods and
techniques derived from classical artificial intelligence,
computational intelligence, multi-agent systems a.o. Intelligent
computing is generally known to be computationally intensive from
the point of view of resources required: time, memory, bandwidth. As
this is usually thought to be a drawback, distributed computing is
expected to give an impetus to its practical applications. Moreover,
intelligent techniques have also proved their usefulness to core
distributed computing technologies like: planning & scheduling, load
balancing, replication, resource allocation and management, etc.
Therefore, the emergent field of intelligent and distributed
computing is expected to pose new challenges of adaptation and
fruitful combination of both areas. The aim of this symposium is to
bring together researchers involved in intelligent and distributed
computing to allow cross-fertilization and synergy of ideas and to
enable advancement of researches in the field.

The symposium welcomes submissions of original papers concerning all
aspects of intelligent and distributed computing ranging from
concepts and theoretical developments to advanced technologies and
innovative applications. Papers acceptance and publication will be
judged based on their relevance to the symposium theme, clarity of
presentation, originality and accuracy of results and proposed
solutions. Topics include, but are not limited to, broadly
- Intelligent service composition and orchestration
- E-service and Web intelligence
- Multi-agent systems
- Information extraction and retrieval in distributed environments
- Data mining and knowledge discovery in distributed environments
- Semantic and knowledge grids
- Intelligent integration of data and processes
- Distributed problem solving
- Ontologies and meta-data for describing heterogeneous resources and
- Autonomic and adaptive distributed computing
- Intelligence in mobile and ubiquitous computing
- Intelligence in cooperative information systems, groupware and
workflows, virtual enterprises, social networks
- Intelligent applications in e-business/e-commerce, e-learning, e-health,
e-science, e-government
- Self-organising and adaptive distributed systems
- Intelligence in Peer-to-Peer systems
- Emerging behaviours in complex distributed systems
- Modelling and simulation of intelligent distributed systems

Paper Submission and Publication
All accepted papers will be included in the Symposium Proceedings, which
will be published by Springer as part of their series Studies in
Computational Intelligence. Papers should have at most 10 pages length and
must be formatted according to Springer format.

Submissions and reviews are automatically handled by a system provided by
the organizers.
