IDCS 2014

7th International Conference on Internet and Distributed Computing Systems
Calabria, Italy, 22/09/2014–24/09/2014

IDCS 2014 conference is the seventh 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 2014 conference, 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 and next-generation collaborative systems and technology. 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.
