January 4-7 2015, Goa, India

Important Dates
Due date for submission: July 25th 2014
Date for notification: September 26th 2014
Date for camera-ready submission: October 15th 2014

ICDCN 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. As in the past, ICDCN 2015 will be
organized in two tracks: Distributed Computing and Networking, and will
comprise a highly selective technical program consisting of refereed
concise papers, panel discussions as well as focused workshops on
emerging topics. Papers describing original research work and practical
experiences/experimental results are solicited on topics including, but
not limited to:

I. Distributed Computing Track
- Distributed algorithms : design, analysis, and complexity
- Local algorithms and Congestion aware algorithms
- Distributed biological algorithms and bio-inspired distributed
- Concurrent data structures
- Concurrent, Synchronization, and transactional memory
- Distributed operating systems and distributed database systems
- Embedded distributed systems
- Experiments and performance evaluation of distributed systems
- Fault-tolerance, reliability, and availability
- Multiprocessor & multi-core architectures & algorithms
- Self-organization, self-stabilization, & autonomic computing
- High performance computing, grid/cluster/cloud computing
- Security, cryptography, & game theory in distributed systems
- Distributed computing issues in large scale systems such as the

II. Networking Track

Submisson Instructions
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, not exceeding one page 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 at
Templates for the standard ACM format can be found at Both strict
and alternate styles are acceptable for submission. No changes to
margins, spacing, or font sizes are allowed from those specified by the
style files. Papers violating the formatting guidelines will be returned
without review. The proceedings will be published through ACM and will
be available in ACM Digital library. Some papers not accepted as regular
papers may be accepted as "Concise papers" with 4 ACM pages in the
proceedings while full papers will be allowed 10 ACM pages.
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. At least one author of
each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper.
