Call For Regular Papers

The International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking (ICDCN) addresses advances in Distributed Computing and Communication Networks. At its 24th edition, ICDCN is a leading forum for disseminating the latest research results in these fields.
ICDCN 2023 Organizing Committee is planning for an in-person conference and encourages the authors to participate physically; however, we understand that the pandemic situation is not over yet. Therefore, depending on the situation during the conference time, remote participation and online presentation may be allowed under special circumstances.
