The 4th International Workshop on
Internet and Distributed Computing Systems (IDCS 2011)
in conjunction with
ICA3PP'11, October 24-26, 2011, Melbourne, Australia

IDCS’11 workshop is the fourth one in its series to promote research
in diverse fields related to Internet and Distributed Computing
Systems. The emergence of Web as a ubiquitous platform for innovations
has laid the foundation for the rapid growth of the Internet.
Side-by-side, the use of mobile and wireless devices such as PDA,
laptop, and cell phones for accessing the Internet has paved the ways
for related technologies to flourish through recent developments. In
addition, the popularity of sensor networks is promoting better
integration of the digital world with physical environment. In this
workshop, we are interested in receiving innovative papers on emerging
technologies related to Internet and distributed systems to support
the effective design and efficient implementation of high-performance
computer networks. The target audience includes researchers and
industry practitioners those are interested in different aspects of
the Internet and distributed systems, with a
 particular focus on the practical experiences with the design and
implementation of related technologies as well as their theoretical

Submission Guidelines

Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will
be considered. Papers should be submitted electronically (PDF/PS) via
the workshop Web site at http://www.cloudbus.org/cdn/idcs11. Each
submitted paper should follow Springer LNCS proceedings paper template
(Available here). The length of all workshop papers will have 10 pages
limit, including all figures, appendix, and references, etc. Submitted
papers may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another
workshop, conference or a journal, nor may they be under review or
submitted to another forum during the review process. Each submission
will be reviewed by the members of the TPC and external reviewers.

The workshop proceedings will be published as Springer Lecture Notes
in Computer Science as part of ICA3PP 2011 conference proceedings, and
will be made available to all conference registrants on site. All
workshop papers will also be electronically available through
SpringerLink Database, and professionally indexed through SCI and EI.
Extended and enhanced versions of top-quality selected papers from the
workshop will be invited for submission on a fast-track basis for the
Springer Journal of Internet Services and Applications (JISA) and
International Journal of Internet and Distributed Computing Systems
(IJIDCS). In addition, selected papers in the information security
area will be recommended for publication in International Journal of
Risk and Contingency Management.


Each paper selected for inclusion in the proceedings must be
registered for ICA3PP 2011 at the same registration rates. Each paper
has to be presented in person by the author, or one of the authors.
