VenueBilbao, Spain Spain



Topics/Call fo Papers

The 12th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing (IDC 2018) will be held in October 2018 in Bilbao, Spain. The main goal of these series of symposiums is to gather researchers and practitioners to foster and ease rich discussions around the latest findings, research achievements and ideas in the area of Intelligent Distributed Computing. The IDC provides an open forum for enhancing the collaboration between researchers, lecturers, and students from Intelligent Computing and Distributing Computing communities. Intelligent Computing covers a hybrid palette of methods and techniques ranging from classical artificial intelligence, information sciences or computational intelligence to more recent trends such as swarm intelligence, bio-inspired computation, cloud computing or machine learning. Distributed Computing develops technologies and methods to build complex computational systems composed of collaborating software components spread over different computational elements. Recent trends on this field are Ephemeral Computing, Federated Learning or Swarm Robotics. Thus, the field of Intelligent Distributed Computing seeks for the design and implementation of new generation of intelligent distributed systems, adapting or hybridizing researches in both Intelligent Computing and Distributed Computing. IDC 2018 welcomes research works centered on all aspects of intelligent distributed computing, with an intention to balance between theoretical research ideas and their practicability as well as industrial applicability. To this end, scholars and practitioners from academia and industrial fields are invited to submit high-quality original contributions to IDC 2018. The structure of the symposium consists of regular sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international program committee, as well as of special sessions focused on multi-disciplinary and cutting-edge topics.
IDC 2018 has a special interest in novel architectures, systems and methods that facilitate distributed / parallel / multi-agent biocomputing for solving complex computational and real-life problems.
