IDC 2015
9th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing
University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal

7th-9th October 2015



The emergent field of Intelligent Distributed Computing focuses on the
development of a new generation of intelligent distributed systems. It
faces the challenges of adapting and combining research in the fields of
Intelligent Computing and Distributed Computing. Intelligent Computing
develops methods and technology ranging from classical artificial
intelligence, computational intelligence and multi-agent systems to game
The field of Distributed Computing develops methods and technology to build
systems that are composed of interacting and collaborating components. The
symposium welcomes submissions of original papers on all aspects of
intelligent distributed computing ranging from concepts and theoretical
developments to advanced technologies and innovative applications.

Paper acceptance and publication will be judged on the basis of their
relevance to the symposium themes, clarity of presentation, originality and
accuracy of results and proposed solutions. Symposium topics include, but
are not limited to:
