*** Call for Papers ***

19th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking (ICDCN 2018)
4-7 January 2018, Varanasi, India
*** Submission Deadline: July 24, 2017 ***
ICDCN (International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking) is a premier
international conference dedicated to addressing advances in Distributed Computing and
Communication Networks, which over the years, has become a leading forum for
disseminating the latest research results in these fields. The conference will be held
in Varanasi, India, during January 4-7, 2018.

ICDCN 2018 will comprise a highly selective technical program consisting of refereed
submitted papers, panel discussions and focused workshops on emerging topics of
Distributed Computing and Networking. Conference papers will be published in the ACM
Digital Library. Selected papers will be invited for fast-track publication in high-quality
journals. There are two tracks at ICDCN -- Distributed computing (DC) and Communication
Networks. The authors of selected best papers in the Distributed Computing track will
be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for publication in Theoretical
Computer Science (TCS - A) journal, Elsevier. The authors of selected best papers in
the Networking track will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for
publication in Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC) journal, Elsevier.

Papers describing original research work and practical experiences/experimental results
are solicited on topics that tentatively include, but are not limited to:

Distributed Computing Track
* Distributed algorithms & concurrent data structures: design, analysis, and complexity
* Distributed operating systems
* Distributed database systems
* Embedded distributed systems, sensors and mobile robots
* Formal methods for distributed systems
* Experimental evaluation of distributed systems
* Fault-tolerance, reliability, and availability
* Multiprocessor & multi-core architectures & algorithms
* Self-organization, self-stabilization, & autonomic computing
* High performance computing, grid computing
* Multi-tire cloud computing and Big Data processing
* Security, cryptography, & game theory in distributed systems
* Internet-scale distributed systems

Networking Track

*** Important Dates:
Paper submission: July 24, 2017
Notifications: September 11, 2017
Camera-Ready: October 23, 2017
Conference Dates: Jan 4-7, 2018

*** Paper Submission Instructions
ICDCN 2018 solicits high quality original manuscripts not submitted or being
considered elsewhere, as either regular or short (concise contribution) papers.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present
the paper.

Regular Papers should not exceed 10 pages double column including figures, tables,
and references in standard ACM format. Additional details may be included in a
clearly-marked appendix (containing all technical ideas and proofs necessary for
an expert to fully verify the claims of the paper) that will be read at the discretion
of the program committee. Papers must be submitted electronically in printable PDF form
via the EasyChair submission management system. Some papers not accepted as regular
papers may be accepted as "concise papers" with 4 pages in the proceedings while full
papers will be allowed 10 pages.

Best Paper Award: The ICDCN TPC plans to award a Best Paper Award, independently for
each of the two tracks. This award will be based on the paper's technical merit, the
opinions of the reviewers AND the presentation quality at the conference.

Warning: It is ACM policy not to allow double submissions, where the same paper is
submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently. Any double submissions
detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
