*Call for Papers *
6th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing - IDC 2012
September 24-26, 2012, Calabria, Italy

*Important dates*
Full paper submission: April 10, 2012
Notification of acceptance: May 10, 2012
Final (camera ready) paper due: June 1, 2012
Symposium: September 24-26, 2012

Intelligent computing covers a hybrid palette of methods and techniques 
derived from classical artificial intelligence, computational 
intelligence, multi-agent systems a.o. Distributed computing studies 
systems that contain loosely-coupled components running on different 
networked computers and that communicate and coordinate their actions by 
message transfer. The emergent field of intelligent distributed 
computing is expected to pose special challenges of adaptation and 
fruitful combination of results of both areas with a great impact on the 
development of new generation intelligent distributed information 
systems. The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers 
involved in intelligent distributed computing to allow 
cross-fertilization and synergy of ideas and to enable advancement of 
researches in the field.

The symposium welcomes submissions of original papers concerning all 
aspects of intelligent distributed computing ranging from concepts and 
theoretical developments to advanced technologies and innovative 
applications. Papers acceptance and publication will be judged based on 
their relevance to the symposium theme, clarity of presentation, 
originality and accuracy of results and proposed solutions.

mistake immediately when we are doing it again and again!"
