Call For Papers


The 18th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence 2021 is an annual forum that will bring together ideas, projects, lessons, etc. associated with distributed computing and artificial intelligence, and their application in different areas. This meeting will be held in Salamanca (Spain) within PAAMS'21 in 6th-8th October, 2021.

Nowadays, most computing systems from personal laptops/computers to cluster/grid /cloud computing systems are available for parallel and distributed computing. Distributed computing performs an increasingly important role in modern signal/data processing, information fusion and electronics engineering (e.g. electronic commerce, mobile communications and wireless devices). Particularly, applying artificial intelligence in distributed environments is becoming an element of high added value and economic potential. Research on Intelligent Distributed Systems has matured during the last decade and many effective applications are now deployed. The artificial intelligence is changing our society. Its application in distributed environments, such as the Internet, electronic commerce, mobile communications, wireless devices, distributed computing, and so on is increasing and is becoming an element of high added value and economic potential, both industrial and research. These technologies are changing constantly as a result of the large research and technical effort being undertaken in both universities and businesses. The exchange of ideas between scientists and technicians from both academic and business areas is essential to facilitate the development of systems that meet the demands of today's society. The technology transfer in this field is still a challenge and for that reason this type of contributions will be specially considered in this symposium.


At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings.

DCAI'21 Special Sessions will be a very useful tool in order to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest in the field of Distributed systems and Artificial Intelligence. Special Sessions that emphasize on multi-disciplinary and transversal aspects, as well as cutting-edge topics are especially encouraged and welcome. At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings.

Prospective organizers of special sessions should submit proposals indicating:
Title of the proposed session.
Short biography of the organizer(s), with complete address for contact.
List of tentative papers (including titles, authors, and contact information of the corresponding author/s).
Special session organizers should also contact a sufficient number of experts who are able to review the papers submitted to their session, bearing in mind that at least two reviews per paper are required in order to make the final assessment. The organizer of the special session may be one of these experts, or he may to propose an alternative referee.

One of the special sessions organizers will be invited to co-edit the proceedings of the conference.

Special Sessions proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, the qualifications of the organizers and the authors of the papers proposed in the sessions, and the balance of the topics across the technical areas represented in Artificial Intelligence.


The aim of the Doctoral Consortium is to provide a frame where students can present their on going research work and meet other students and researchers, and obtain feedback on future research directions.

The Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who have a specific research proposal and some preliminary results, but who are still far from completing their dissertation.

All proposals submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will undergo a thorough reviewing process with the aim to provide detailed and constructive feedback. The accepted submissions will be presented at the Doctoral Consortium and published in the conference proceedings.


∎ Authors of selected papers from PAAMS 2021 and Co-located Events will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a Special Issue published in Mathematical Biosciences and Engineering (ISSN 1551-0018, JCR: 1.285(Q4)

∎ Authors of selected papers from PAAMS 2021 and Co-located Events will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a Special Issue published in ADCAIJ (ISSN: 2255-2863, indexed in DOAJ, ProQuest, Scholar, WorldCat, Dialnet, Sherpa ROMEO, Dulcinea, UlrichWeb, Emerging Sources Citation Index of Thomson Reuters, BASE y Academic Journals Database)
