25th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking

4th - 7th January 2024, Chennai, India

Call for Tutorials

25th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking (ICDCN 2024) invites submissions for Tutorial proposals on all topics listed below and more. Tutorial proposals should be no more than six (6) pages (excluding the biography of the presenters) and strictly follow the ACM conference style templates
Tutorials are expected to take place in parallel with the workshops and main conference tracks of the conference. The length of each tutorial is supposed to be 1.5 - 2.5 hours (flexible). At least one organizer of an accepted Tutorial is required to attend the conference to carry out the presentation. Each accepted Tutorial will receive one complimentary conference registration. Proposal evaluation criteria include the following: relevance to ICDCN, scientific quality, perceived interest and overlap with ICDCN tutorials in the past.


Scope of the tutorial tentatively include, but are not limited to:

  • Distributed algorithms: design, analysis, and complexity
  • Network aspects of federated learning
  • 6G networks and beyond
  • Semantic communications
  • Quantum networks
  • Communication networks: algorithms, architectures, services, protocols, applications
  • Multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
  • Shared and transactional memory, synchronization protocols, concurrent programming
  • Fault-tolerance, reliability, availability, self-organization, self-stabilization
  • Codes and reliable communication
  • Internet applications, social networks, recommendation systems
  • Dynamic, adaptive and machine learning-based distributed algorithms
  • Distributed operating systems, middleware platforms, databases
  • Game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing
  • Distributed mechanisms design
  • Peer-to-peer systems, overlay networks, distributed data management
  • High-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
  • Wireless networks, mobile computing, autonomous agents and robots
  • Context-aware distributed systems
  • Security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols
  • Distributed cryptocurrencies and blockchain protocols
  • Quantum and optics-based distributed algorithms
  • Nanonetworks
  • Biological distributed algorithms
  • Sensor, mesh, and ad hoc networks
