Following the previous three successful editions of the IDCS workshop: IDCS'08 in Dhaka, Bangladesh, IDCS'09 in Jeju Island, Korea, IDCS'10 in Melbourne, Australia; IDCS’11 is the fourth in its series to promote research in diverse fields related to Internet and Distributed Computing Systems. The emergence of Web as a ubiquitous platform for innovations has laid the foundation for the rapid growth of the Internet. Side-by-side, the use of mobile and wireless devices such as PDA, laptop, and cell phones for accessing the Internet has paved the ways for related technologies to flourish through recent developments. In addition, the popularity of sensor networks is promoting better integration of the digital world with physical environment. In this workshop, we are interested in receiving innovative papers on emerging technologies related to Internet and distributed systems to support the effective design and efficient implementation of high-performance computer networks. The target audience includes researchers and industry practitioners those are interested in different aspects of the Internet and distributed systems, with a particular focus on the practical experiences with the design and implementation of related technologies as well as their theoretical perspectives.

The workshop proceedings will be published as Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science as part of ICA3PP 2011 conference proceedings, and will be made available to all conference registrants on site. All workshop papers will also be electronically available through SpringerLink Database, and professionally indexed through SCI and EI. Extended and enhanced versions of top-quality selected papers from the workshop will be invited for submission on a fast-track basis for the Springer Journal of Internet Services and Applications (JISA) and International Journal of Internet and Distributed Computing Systems (IJIDCS). In addition, selected papers in the information security area will be recommended for publication in International Journal of Risk and Contingency Management.
