2nd International Workshop on Internet and Distributed Computing Systems (IDCS'09)

In conjunction with the 2nd CSA 2009, December 10-12, 2009, Jeju Island, Korea
URL: http://www.gridbus.org/cdn/idcs09/

IDCS’09 workshop is the second one 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 this workshop, 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. 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.

Submission Guidelines

Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be considered. Please submit full papers: 8 to 10 pages in LNCS format including figures, tables, and references. Authors are requested to follow the LNCS guidelines available at

Papers should be submitted electronically (PDF/PS) via the workshop Web site at http://www.gridbus.org/cdn/idcs09/. Submitted papers may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another workshop, conference or a journal, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during the review process. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the International Program Committee.


The workshop proceedings will be published as part of the CSA 2009 conference proceedings published by Springer as a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Extended and revised versions of selected high-quality papers from the workshop are expected to be invited for publication in a book or in a special issue of a reputable International Journal.
