18th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Intelligent Technology

19th – 23rd January, 2022
Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology
Deemed to be University, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India

Call for Papers

Since 2004, ICDCIT conference series has been a global platform for Computer Science researchers to exchange research results and ideas on the foundations and applications of Distributed Computing and Internet Technology. The rapid rise and adoption of Artificial Intelligence in all domains of science and engineering has prompted the introduction of “intelligent technology” in the scope of the conference. Undoubtedly, these technologies are critical to individuals and organizations who engage in the design, development and deployment of large scale systems incorporating AI based components and subsystems.

The 18th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Intelligent Technology (ICDCIT-2022) will take place in Bhubaneswar during 19 – 23rd January 2022. It will be organized by KIIT, Bhubaneswar, India. As in the previous years, proceedings of the conference are planned to be published by Springer in the series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

ICDCIT-2022 solicits original research papers contributing to the foundations and applications of Distributed Computing and Intelligent Technology in the following broad areas:

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to electronically submit their papers using LNCS format written in English, of up to 16 pages, presenting unpublished research results (not submitted elsewhere) or innovative practical applications including development of state of the art tools relevant to the conference theme. All submissions are to be done electronically, and submitted papers will be peer reviewed for possible inclusion in the conference proceedings expected to be published by Springer-Verlag as a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science.


During the paper submission (on the easychair link given below), you will be required to choose one of the two tracks: Distributed Computing or Intelligent Technology. Please choose the track based on the topics mentioned above.

Anonymous Submissions

This year onwards, we are having anonymous submissions. A submission should not reveal the identity of the authors in any way. No names, addresses and affiliations should appear in the paper. Any references to their own related work should be in the third person (e.g., not “We build on our previous work …” but rather “We build on the work of …”). The purpose of this process is to help PC members and external reviewers come to an initial judgment about the paper without bias, not to make it impossible for them to discover the authors if they were to try.

The conference’s double blind review process should avoid bias, yet nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult. In particular, important references should not be omitted or anonymized. Authors with further questions on double-blind reviewing are encouraged to contact the PC chairs by email.

You are free to disseminate your work through ArXiv and other online repositories and give presentations on your work as usual.

At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper in person at the conference.
