The 6th International Conference on
Internet and Distributed Computing Systems (IDCS 2013)
October 28-30, 2013, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China

IDCS 2013 conference is the sixth 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 2013 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. 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. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF via
the conference Web site at Each
submitted paper should follow Springer LNCS proceedings paper
template. The length of all submitted papers will have 14 pages limit,
including all figures, appendix, and references, etc. 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 the members of the TPC and external reviewers.


The conference proceedings will be published as Springer Lecture Notes
in Computer Science, and will be made available to all conference
registrants on site. All papers will also be electronically available
through SpringerLink Database, and professionally indexed through SCI
and EI. Extended and enhanced versions of top-quality selected papers
from the workshop will be invited for submission on a fast-track basis
for the special issues in Concurrency and Computation: Practice and
Experience Journal (ISI Indexed, Impact Factor: 0.845).


Each paper selected for inclusion in the proceedings must be
registered for IDCS 2013. Each paper has to be presented in person by
the main author, or one of the authors.
