      ***************** IDC'2008 - preliminary call for papers ******************

      2nd International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing - IDC'2008
      ===========================================================================
      September 18-20, 2008, Catania, Italy

      http://idc08.diit.unict.it
      Contact: gmangioni@..., badica_costin@...



      Organized by
      Dipartimento di Ingegneria Informatica e delle Telecomunicazioni,
      Universita di Catania, Italia
      Software Engineering Department, University of Craiova, Romania


      Call for Papers
      ===============
      Intelligent computing is a quite mature field of information and
      communication technology covering a hybrid palette of methods and
      techniques derived from classical artificial intelligence,
      computational intelligence, multi-agent systems a.o. Intelligent
      computing is generally known to be computationally intensive from
      the point of view of resources required: time, memory, bandwidth. As
      this is usually thought to be a drawback, distributed computing is
      expected to give an impetus to its practical applications. Moreover,
      intelligent techniques have also proved their usefulness to core
      distributed computing technologies like: planning & scheduling, load
      balancing, replication, resource allocation and management, etc.
      Therefore, the emergent field of intelligent and distributed
      computing is expected to pose new challenges of adaptation and
      fruitful combination of both areas. The aim of this symposium is to
      bring together researchers involved in intelligent and distributed
      computing to allow cross-fertilization and synergy of ideas and to
      enable advancement of researches in the field.

      The symposium welcomes submissions of original papers concerning all
      aspects of intelligent and distributed computing ranging from
      concepts and theoretical developments to advanced technologies and
      innovative applications. Papers acceptance and publication will be
      judged based on their relevance to the symposium theme, clarity of
      presentation, originality and accuracy of results and proposed
      solutions. Topics include, but are not limited to, broadly
      understood:
      - Intelligent service composition and orchestration
      - E-service and Web intelligence
      - Multi-agent systems
      - Information extraction and retrieval in distributed environments
      - Data mining and knowledge discovery in distributed environments
      - Semantic and knowledge grids
      - Intelligent integration of data and processes
      - Distributed problem solving
      - Ontologies and meta-data for describing heterogeneous resources and
      services
      - Autonomic and adaptive distributed computing
      - Intelligence in mobile and ubiquitous computing
      - Intelligence in cooperative information systems, groupware and
      workflows, virtual enterprises, social networks
      - Intelligent applications in e-business/e-commerce, e-learning, e-health,
      e-science, e-government
      - Self-organising and adaptive distributed systems
      - Intelligence in Peer-to-Peer systems
      - Emerging behaviours in complex distributed systems
      - Modelling and simulation of intelligent distributed systems



      Paper Submission and Publication
      ================================
      All accepted papers will be included in the Symposium Proceedings, which
      will be published by Springer as part of their series Studies in
      Computational Intelligence. Papers should have at most 10 pages length and
      must be formatted according to Springer format.

      Submissions and reviews are automatically handled by a system provided by
      the organizers.

      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.
