6th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing
Calabria, Italy, 24/09/2012–26/09/2012

Intelligent computing covers a hybrid palette of methods and techniques derived from classical artificial intelligence, computational intelligence, multi-agent systems a.o. Distributed computing studies systems that contain loosely-coupled components running on different networked computers and that communicate and coordinate their actions by message transfer. The emergent field of intelligent distributed computing is expected to pose special challenges of adaptation and fruitful combination of results of both areas with a great impact on the development of new generation intelligent distributed information systems. The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers involved in intelligent 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 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.
