Welcome to 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 theory.

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:
