Call For Papers

The 13th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing (IDC 2019)
Saint-Petersburg, Russia, October 7-9, 2019

Symposium description

The 13th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing (IDC 2019) will be held October 7-9, 2019 in Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
The main goal of the symposium 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, techniques and their applications ranging from classical artificial intelligence, information and data sciences, multi-agent technologies or computational intelligence to more recent trends such as swarm intelligence, bio-inspired computation, cloud computing, machine learning or social-cyber-physical security.
Recent trends on this field present ephemeral computing, federated learning, swarm Intelligence, fog computing, semantic data science and others. 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 2019 welcomes research works centered on all aspects of intelligent distributed computing, with an intention to balance between theoretical research ideas and their application to great variety of industrial cases. To this end, scholars and practitioners from academia and industrial fields are invited to submit high-quality original contributions to IDC 2019.
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 and workshops targeted on multi-disciplinary and cutting-edge topics.
IDC 2019 has a special interest in novel and creative approaches, architectures, systems and methods that facilitate distributed / parallel / multi-agent / bio-inspired computing for solving complex computational and communicational problems as well as real-life challenges. The scope of this edition spans further to embrace recent paradigms in Distributed Computation.


The IDC 2019 Symposium organized by Laboratory of Computer Security Problems of St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SPIIRAS) and ITMO University will be held in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Saint-Petersburg founded by Peter the Great in 1703, can rightly be called one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, united in its appearance European and Russian, architectural tradition.
It was the imperial capital for two centuries and remains Russia's cultural center, with venues like the Hermitage, one of the largest art museums in the world, the State Russian Museum showcasing Russian art, from Orthodox icon paintings to Kandinsky works, and the Mariinsky Theatre hosting opera and ballet. The historic centre of St. Petersburg and related groups of monuments constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The city is often called the "Venice of the North" because it is built on 44 islands, separated by 86 rivers and canals. Saint Petersburg is famous for its "white nights" when the end of May to mid-July instead of darkness envelops the city soft twilight, creating a unique romantic atmosphere, which is complemented by the classic St. Petersburg overlooking divorced bridges. St. Petersburg is not less beautiful, and in the winter, with encased in ice Neva and brilliant snow on the domes of St.Petersburg cathedral.
