IDCS 2013 is the sixth 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 IDCS 2013, 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.

Submission Guidelines

Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be considered. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF via the conference Web site at Each submitted paper should follow Springer LNCS proceedings paper template. The length of all submitted papers will have 14 pages limit, including all figures, appendix, and references, etc. Submitted papers may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another workshop, conference or a journal, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during the review process. Each submission will be reviewed by the members of the TPC and external reviewers.


The conference proceedings will be published as Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science, and will be made available to all conference registrants on site. All papers will also be electronically available through SpringerLink Database, and professionally indexed through ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S),  EI, Scopus, ACM Digital Library, DBLP and Google scholar. Extended and enhanced versions of top-quality selected papers from the workshop will be invited for submission on a fast-track basis for the special issue of the Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience Journal.


Each paper selected for inclusion in the proceedings must be registered for IDCS 2013. Each paper has to be presented in person by the main author, or one of the authors.
