The proceedings of ICDCN 2025 along with all the satellite events (posters,
demo, workshops, etc.) will be published by The ACM International
Conference Proceeding Series (ICPS), which is indexed by ACM, DBLP, Scopus,
and other indexing bodies. The proceedings will be available through the
ACM digital library.


*Special *


Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for fast-track
publications in the Theoretical Computer Science (TCS) Journal or in
Elsevier's Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC) Journal.


*Best Paper Award*


The conference will assign a Best Paper Award


*Submission Instructions*


● All submissions must use the official LaTeX ACM article template
acmart.cls, version of 1.80 or greater, using the following documentclass
instruction: \documentclass[sigconf,authordraft]{acmart}.

● Regular Papers should not exceed 10 pages double-column including
figures, tables, and references in standard ACM format. Regular papers may
include a clearly marked Appendix with all the additional details required
to validate the results (including technical proofs and experimental
results that did not fit into the first 10 pages).

● Short Papers must not exceed 5 pages double-column including figures,
tables, and references in standard ACM format.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference
and present the paper. All papers must be submitted through the EasyChair


*Double-Blind Reviewing*


The conference will employ a lightweight double-blind reviewing process.
Submissions should not reveal the identity of the authors in any way. In
particular, authors' names, affiliations, and email addresses should not
appear anywhere in the submission. Nothing should be done in the name of
anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the
paper more difficult. In particular, important references should not be
omitted or anonymized. Use the third person to refer to the author's
previous work, e.g., replace "as we have shown before" with "as shown
before in [X]."

In addition, authors should feel free to disseminate their ideas or draft
versions of their paper as they normally would. For example, authors may
post drafts of their papers on the web, submit them to arXiv, and give
talks on their research ideas. Authors with further questions on
double-blind reviewing are encouraged to contact the PC Co-Chairs by email


*Conflict of Interest*


Indications of conflicts of interest will be required in the submission
form. A conflict of interest is limited to the following:

● A family member or close friend.

● A Ph.D. advisor or advisee (no time limit), or a postdoctoral or
undergraduate mentor or mentee within the past five years.

● A person with the same affiliation.

● A person involved in an alleged incident of harassment. (It is not
required that the incident be reported.)

● Frequent collaborators, or collaborators who have jointly published
papers within the last two years.

If you feel that you have a valid reason for a conflict of interest not
listed above, contact the PC Co-Chairs.
