4th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing IDC-2010

Dear Colleague,

We have the pleasure to announce the International Symposium on
Intelligent Distributed Computing 2010.

******************************* IDC-2010 **********************************

4th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing IDC-2010
September 16-18, 2010, Tangier, Morocco

Organized by
IEEE Morocco Section
Software Engineering Department, University of Craiova, Romania

Intelligent computing covers a hybrid palette of methods and
techniques derived from classical artificial intelligence,
computational intelligence, and intelligent agents. Distributed
systems contain loosely-coupled components running on different
networked computers 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: e-business/e-commerce,
e-learning, e-health, e-science, e-government,
crisis/disaster/emergency management, social networks
- Peer-to-Peer systems
- Emerging behaviours in complex distributed systems
- Distributed nature-inspired and bio-inspired computing
- Modelling and simulation of intelligent distributed systems
- Knowledge integration and fusion from distributed sources
- Trust, reputation, security and privacy

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.
