The emergent field of Intelligent Distributed Computing focuses on the development of a new generation of intelligent distributed systems. It faces the challenges of adapting and combining research in the fields of Intelligent Computing and Distributed Computing. Intelligent Computing develops methods and technology ranging from classical artificial intelligence, computational intelligence and multi-agent systems to game theory. The field of Distributed Computing develops methods and technology to build systems that are composed of interacting and collaborating components. The symposium welcomes submissions of original papers on all aspects of intelligent distributed computing ranging from concepts and theoretical developments to advanced technologies and innovative applications.

The 8th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing has a special interest in (but will not be limited to) novel architectures, systems and methods that facilitate distributed / parallel / multi-agent biocomputing for solving complex computational and real-life problems.

Paper acceptance and publication will be judged on the basis of their relevance to the symposium themes, clarity of presentation, originality and accuracy of results and proposed solutions. Symposium topics include, but are not limited to:

Intelligent Distributed and High-Performance Architectures
- Hybrid distributed systems involving software agents and human actors
- Intelligent grid and cloud infrastructures
- Agent-based wireless sensor networks

- Virtualization infrastructures for intelligent computing
- Bio-inspired and nature-inspired distributed computing

Organization and Management
- Autonomic and adaptive distributed computing
- Intelligent service composition and orchestration
- Self-organizing and adaptive distributed systems
- Emerging behaviors in complex distributed systems
- Intelligent integration of heterogeneous data and processes
- Methodologies for development of intelligent distributed systems and applications

Intelligent Distributed Knowledge Representation and Processing
- Information extraction and retrieval in distributed environments
- Knowledge integration and fusion from distributed sources
- Data mining and knowledge discovery in distributed environments
- Semantic and knowledge grids
- Ontologies and meta-data for describing heterogeneous resources and services
- Distributed fusion of sensor data streams

Networked Intelligence
- E-service and web intelligence
- Intelligence in mobile, ubiquitous and wearable computing

Papers must have at most 10 pages length and must be formatted according to Springer format for Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes (Latex only) available at:

Submissions and reviews are automatically handled by Easychair. Please submit your paper at:

Extended versions of the best papers accepted and presented at this symposium may be considered for publication in a Special Issue of an internationally recognized journal.

Important dates

Full paper submission: March 1, 2014
Notification of acceptance: April 13, 2014
Final (camera ready) paper due: May 24, 2014
Symposium: September 3-5, 2014

More information

For more information regarding this call for papers, the 8th IDC conference, please refer to the IDC 2014 website:


The 8th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing IDC 2014, to be held in Madrid, Spain on September 3-5, 2014, will host multiple half and one-day workshops in conjunction with the main symposium. We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the main IDC conference. IDC workshops should focus on creating interactions among participants as well as community building.

A workshop proposal for IDC 2014 should contain at least the following information:
- Name and possible acronym of the workshop.
- Motivation and rationale for the workshop.
- Draft call-for-papers, including introduction and topics of the workshop.
- Names and affiliations of main organizers, and a tentative composition of the committees (as complete as possible). Please indicate whether prospective committee members have been contacted and whether they have accepted the invitation.
- Workshop format including a proposal for half- or full-day workshop, information about planned invited talks, panels, demonstrations, etc.
- Planned further publication scheme (besides being part of the IDC proceedings), i.e. is aimed at journal publication of selected papers (if yes which journal is targeted).
- Expected number of participants and expected number of submissions.
- Short description of the prior history of this workshop, if any.

Please note that the internal deadlines of all IDC workshops have to be synchronized in order to streamline processing of the IDC proceedings.

Please submit your workshop proposals by email to Lars Braubach (

Important Dates

Last Call for Workshop Proposals due: February 1, 2014

Workshop proposals will be evaluated ongoing as received. Approved workshops should strictly follow the important dates of the IDC 2014 Conference, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates.
