ICDCN (International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking) is a premier international conference dedicated to addressing advances in Distributed Computing and Communication Networks. International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking (ICDCN) was launched 14 years ago, initially as an International Workshop (IWDC), and within a few years it gained visibility as one of the leading international conferences, disseminating the latest research results in this area. Earlier editions of ICDCN have been hosted by Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Infosys Technologies, Bangalore & IIIT-Bangalore, IIT Kharagpur, IIIT Hyderabad, IIT Guwahati, Jadavpur University, Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai, University of Calcutta etc.

In ICDCN 2009, US National Science Foundation organized the PEERS workshop for brainstorming about US-India collaborative efforts to increase the Ph.D. production in Computer Science and Engineering in India, as well as to motivate US domestic undergraduate students to go for graduate studies in Computer Science and Engineering. This effort was the first of its kind by a conference at a time when the abysmal rate of Computer Science Ph.D. production started hurting the Indian R & D labs and academic community. ICDCN organizes a Ph.D. forum to encourage promising graduate students showcase their research in the presence of a panel of internationally acclaimed scientists, and industrial leaders. As in the past, ICDCN 2014 will be organized in two tracks: Distributed Computing and Networking, and will comprise a highly selective technical program consisting of refereed submitted papers, panel discussions, Ph.D forum as well as focused workshops and tutorials on emerging and cutting-edge topics.

ICDCN 2014 Conference Proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
