Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished results are solicited in all areas of theory and practice of distributed systems and networking. As in the past, ICDCN 2011 will be organized in two tracks: Distributed Computing and Networking. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

Distributed algorithms: design, analysis, complexity
Distributed operating systems, middleware, database systems
Embedded distributed systems
Experiments and measurements of distributed systems
Fault-tolerance, reliability, availability, self-organization
Self-stabilization, autonomic computing
High performance computing, grid computing, cloud computing
Integration of heterogeneous wireless and wired networks
Internetworking protocols and internet applications
Mobile and pervasive computing, context-aware distributed systems
Multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
Network reliability, security and privacy
Next generation network architectures
Overlay and peer-to-peer networks
Performance modeling and evaluation
Resource management and quality of service
Security in distributed systems, cryptographic protocols
Sensor networks, ad-hoc networks, and mesh networks
Shared and transactional memory, synchronization protocols , concurrent programming
Specification, debugging, semantics, verification, testing of distributed systems
Traffic engineering, pricing, network management
Wireless networks: cellular networks, and wireless LANs

A submission should report on original, previously unpublished research that is not being concurrently considered elsewhere for publication in a journal or conference. A submission consists of up to ten single-spaced pages using at least 11-point Times Roman font, or similar, and one-inch margins on all sides on A4 or letter sized pages. The page limit includes title page, references, figures, and tables. Extra material, such as additional experiments, proofs, and graphs, can be included in a clearly-marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Submissions deviating from these guidelines will not be reviewed. Submissions must be entered electronically according to instructions on the conference website. Accepted submissions will be published by Springer in the LNCS series (pending approval). Submissions may be accepted either as regular papers with ten pages in the proceedings, or short papers with six pages. Authors may request that their submission be considered only as a regular paper. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper.

Extended versions of selected papers from ICDCN 2010 will be considered for publication in the Theoretical Computer Science journal (pending approval) and in the Pervasive and Mobile Computing journal.

Every paper is eligible for a Best Paper Award. The Program Committee may decline to make the award or may split it.
