5th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing - IDC 2011
October 5-7, 2011, Delft, The Netherlands

Call for Papers

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. Intelligent Computing
develops methods and technology ranging from classical artificial
intelligence, computational intelligence and multi-agent systems to game
theory. The field of Distributed Computing develops methods and
technology to build systems that are composed of collaborating
components. 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

The 5th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing has
a special interest in novel architectures and methods which facilitate
intelligent distributed solutions to complex problems by combining human
cognitive capabilities and automated processing.

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. Topics include, but are
not limited to:

Intelligent Distributed Architecture
- Hybrid systems involving software agents and human actors
- Intelligent integration of data and processes
- Intelligent cloud infrastructures

Organization and Management
- Autonomic and adaptive distributed computing
