Call For Papers

Conference Overview
Modern systems such as distributed systems, cloud computing, mobile computing, edge computing, fog computing, and cyber-physical systems are tend to complexity, elasticity, dependability, security especially when dealing with dynamics events or actions in their environments and/or Internet applications, we are not only need to keep those systems running normally, but also need them to self-adaptive 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 and 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 also constructive development in biological, agricultural, and policy.

This conference desired 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 mange such complex and adaptive computation resources.

IDCS 2018 proceedings will be published as Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). All contributions will also be electronically available through SpringerLink Database and will be indexed through ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S), EI, Scopus, ACM Digital Library, DBLP, and Google scholar.

Authors of selected conference papers will be invited to submit an extended paper to a Special Issue on international journals related to IoT, Computer Science or software technologies.

As Japan's only general academic research institution, National Institute of Informatics (NII) promotes the creation of a state-of-the-art academic-information infrastructure that is essential to research and education within the broader academic community, with a focus on partnerships and other joint efforts with universities and research institutions throughout Japan.

The IDCS2018 will be held at the Hitotsubashi Hall in the center of Tokyo, which is in the same building as the NII. The traffic around NII is very convenient.

You can by Trains (Subways) as follows:
1. Tokyo Metro Hanzomon Line / Toei Mita Line / Toei Shinjuku Line
2. Toyko Metro Tozai Line"TAKEBASHI" Exit 1b
3-5 minutes walk from the stations

You also can walk to the Imperial Palace, Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art, Budokan Hall and many other famous attractions in 5-15 minutes.

During the conference, we arranged for participating professors, scientists and students to attend a banquet at the Gakushi kaikan (the birthplace of the University of Tokyo). The elegant piano accompaniment will promote the atmosphere of our discussions.
