IDCS 2018

11th International Conference on Internet and Distributed Computing Systems
Tokio, Japan, 10/10/2018–13/10/2018

Modern systems such as distributed systems, cloud computing, mobile computing, edge computing, fog computing, and cyber-physical systems are tending to complexity, elasticity, dependability, security. Especially when dealing with dynamics events or actions in their environments and/or Internet applications, we not only need to keep those systems running normally, but also need them to self-adapt to many of changes.

On the other hand, the development of the Internet is very high rapid, and the Internet has already entered the 5G era. The Internet as society infrastructure and the widespread use of mobile edge, wireless wearable devices or IoT sensors have laid the foundation for the emergence of innovative network applications, transportation and logistics. Under the influence of these most advanced technologies, human production and life are gradually changing.

The academic and industrial worlds are constantly developing and innovating in areas such as mechanical learning, artificial intelligence, and media stream processing. These technologies not only enrich and improve the quality of life of modern people, but also in the process of integration in many fields. The huge amount of data processing, and the integration of the digital world with the physical environment make humans to also set a constructive development in biological, agricultural, and policy.

This conference desires to look for inspiration in diverse areas (e.g. infrastructure & system design, software development, big data, control theory, artificial intelligence, IoT, self-adaptation, emerging models, paradigms, applications and technologies related to Internet-based distributed systems) to develop new ways to design and manage such complex and adaptive computation resources.
