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
- 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
