ICDCN 2020 Call for Workshop Proposals

21st International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking (ICDCN 2020)

Jan 4-7 2020

Kolkata, India

ICDCN is a premier international conference dedicated to addressing advances in Distributed Computing and Communication Networks. Over the years, it has become a leading forum for disseminating the latest research results in these fields. The 21th edition of this conference will be organized in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and School of Mobile Computing and Communication, Jadavpur University,Kolkata, India. Kolkata is not only the home of many industries in India in both public and private sector, but also a major tourist attraction. One can also enjoy the other tourist attraction points around Kolkata.
ICDCN 2020 will be organized in two tracks: Distributed Computing and Networking, and will comprise of a highly selective technical program consisting of refereed regular and short papers, panel discussions as well as focused workshops on emerging topics. See Call for Papers for more details. Conference proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Selected papers will be invited for fast-track publication in one or more appropriate high-quality journals. The conference will consider awarding a Best Paper Award, independently for each track.

The 21st International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking (ICDCN 2020) plans to host several workshops. The Organizing Committee invites proposals for one-day or half-day workshops affiliated with the conference. Workshops should emphasize current topics of interest to the conference and the community which are Distributed Computing and Communication Networks. Workshops should emphasize current topics of interest within the broader areas of Distributed Computing and Communication Networks. Some of the topics of current interest are mentioned below, though this list is by no means exhaustive:

  • Distributed Data-Analytics
  • Blockchains
  • Distributed AI/ML
  • Cyber-security
  • Disaster response
  • Smart healthcare
  • Energy and Sustainability
  • Cyber-Physical systems
  • Distributed game theory
  • Biological Distributed Algorithms
  • Social Network Analysis and Mining
  • 5G and beyond Networks
  • Next generation internet

The workshops may include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations and panels that encourage the participation of attendees in active discussion. The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting new ideas in a generally more focused area than the main conference. The objective of these workshops is to enable stimulating discussions on state-of-the-art, emerging, visionary, and perhaps controversial topics. Workshops should be organized to promote such lively interaction. Plans to promote interaction and discussion should be clearly addressed in workshop proposals. It is expected that workshop papers will be published along with the main conference papers as part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS) and will be indexed by the ACM Digital Library.
