ICDCN 2023 Workshops

The 24th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking (ICDCN 2023) plans to host several workshops. The Organizing Committee invites proposals for one-day or half-day workshops affiliated with the conference. Workshops should emphasize current topics of interest within the broader areas of Distributed Computing and Communication Networks. Some of the topics of interest are mentioned below, but not limited to:
  • Distributed Data-Analytics
  • Blockchains
  • Distributed AI/ML
  • Security, Privacy and Game Theory in Distributed Computing and Networking
  • Disaster response
  • Smart healthcare
  • Energy and Sustainability
  • Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical systems
  • Distributed game theory
  • Biological Distributed Algorithms
  • Mobile Crowdsensing and Social Network Analysis and Mining
  • 5G and beyond Networks
  • Next generation internet
  • Ad-hoc, Sensor, PAN and Mesh Networks
  • Backscatter and Ultra-low Power Networks
  • Cloud Computing and Big Data Processing
  • Cognitive Networking
  • Edge Computing and Mobile Offloading
  • Pervasive and Mobile Computing
  • Vehicular Networks, Smart Grids and Smart City Applications
  • Fault-tolerance, Reliability, and Availability of Distributed Systems
  • Self-organization, Self-stabilization, and Autonomic Computing

The workshops may include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations and panels that encourage the participation of attendees in active discussion. The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting new ideas in a generally more focused area than the main conference. The objective of these workshops is to enable stimulating discussions on state-of-the-art, emerging, visionary, and perhaps controversial topics. Workshops should be organized to promote such lively interaction. Plans to promote interaction and discussion should be clearly addressed in workshop proposals. It is expected that workshop papers will be published along with the main conference papers as part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS) and will be indexed by the ACM Digital Library.

Format of the Proposal:

Each workshop proposal (maximum 5 pages) must include:
- Title of the workshop
- Description of the technical issues covered, emphasising the timeliness of the proposed workshop (1 page maximum)
- Workshop Organizers (names, affiliation and contact information), limiting up to 2 workshop chairs for half-day workshop and 3 workshop chairs for full-day workshop
- A short biography of the organizers (up to 200 words)
-Names of potential participants, such as program committee members and invited speakers (indication that speakers accepted to participate is a plus)
- Planned format of the workshop, including:
  • Duration of the workshop: Half-day, Full-day and tentative schedule
  • Preferred day of workshop: Before or after the conference
  • Number of refereed papers, hot topic sessions, keynotes, panels
  • Unique, creative and novel workshops formats are strongly encouraged
- Draft Call for Papers
- A description of the publicity and promotion plan
- Workshop potential website address (if available at the time of the proposal - will be required later if the workshop proposal is accepted)
- If appropriate, a description of past versions of the workshop, including the number of submitted and accepted papers, number of attendees, etc.
-In order to ensure the quality of the accepted papers in ICDCN, the ICDCN steering committee set an upper limit of 40% on the acceptance rate for ICDCN Workshop papers.
Hence, it is desirable for the organizers of the accepted workshops to adhere to that acceptance rate for their respective workshops.
