ICDCN, International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking, is a premier international conference dedicated to addressing advances in Distributed Computing and Communication Networks. Over the years, it has become a leading forum for disseminating the latest research results in these fields.


The 23rd edition of this conference will be held at the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Delhi, from Jan 4 - 7, 2022.  Delhi, the capital of India, combines rich history and modern facilities that includes a convenient metro system, a well-connected International airport with direct flights to a number of cities across the world, and a vast array of hotels.


Regular Papers should not exceed 10 pages double column including figures, tables, and references in standard ACM format. Regular papers may additionally include a clearly marked Appendix with all the additional details required to validate the results (including technical proofs and experimental results that did not fit in the 10 pages). Short Papers should not exceed 5 pages double column including figures, tables, and references in standard ACM format. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper. All papers must be submitted through the easychair portal at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icdcn2022
