CFP: Intelligent Distributed Computing IDC 2009

*** Deadline Extension: 27th April 2009 ***

                  IDC 2009 - Last Call for Papers

  3rd International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing

               October 12-14, 2009, Ayia Napa, Cyprus


Organized by
Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus, Cyprus
Software Engineering Department, University of Craiova, Romania

Call for Papers
Intelligent computing covers a hybrid palette of methods and techniques
derived from classical artificial intelligence, computational
intelligence, multi-agent systems a.o. Distributed computing studies
systems that contain loosely-coupled components running on different
networked computers and that communicate and coordinate their actions
by message transfer. The emergent field of intelligent distributed
computing is expected to pose special challenges of adaptation and
fruitful combination of results of both areas with a great impact
on the development of new generation intelligent distributed
information systems. The aim of this symposium is to bring together
researchers involved in intelligent distributed computing to allow
cross-fertilization and synergy of ideas and to enable advancement
of researches in the field.

The symposium welcomes submissions of original papers concerning
all aspects of intelligent distributed computing ranging from
concepts and theoretical developments to advanced technologies
and innovative applications. Papers acceptance and publication
will be judged based on their relevance to the symposium theme,
clarity of presentation, originality and accuracy of results
and proposed solutions. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Intelligent service composition and orchestration
- E-service and Web intelligence
- Multi-agent systems
- Information extraction and retrieval in distributed environments
- Data mining and knowledge discovery in distributed environments
- Semantic and knowledge grids
- Intelligent integration of data and processes
- Distributed problem solving and decision making
- Ontologies and meta-data for describing heterogeneous resources
and services
- Autonomic, adaptive and self-organising distributed computing
and systems
- Intelligence in mobile, ubiquitous and pervasive computing
- Intelligence in cooperative information systems, groupware
and workflows, virtual enterprises, social networks
- Intelligent distributed applications in e-business/e-commerce,
e-learning, e-health, e-science, e-government, crisis management
- Intelligence in Peer-to-Peer systems
- Emerging behaviours in complex distributed systems
- Modelling and simulation of intelligent distributed systems

Paper Submission and Publication
All accepted papers will be included in the Symposium Proceedings, which
will be published by Springer as part of their series Studies in
Computational Intelligence. Papers should have at most 10 pages length
and must be formatted according to Springer format.

Submissions and reviews are automatically handled by a system provided
by the organizers. Please submit your paper here:

Extended versions of the best papers accepted and presented at this
symposium may be considered for publication in a Special Issue of
an internationally recognized journal.

Important dates
Full paper submission: April 27, 2009
Notification of acceptance: May 22, 2009
Final (camera ready) paper due: June 12, 2009
Symposium: October 12-14, 2009
