*** 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 and
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

*** 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.

Submission Link:

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.
