The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Distributed and Intelligent Systems
Athens, Greece, September 5-8, 2021
in conjunction with the Twenty-Sixth IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (IEEE ISCC)
The digital environment that we populate is becoming more complex every day. Several devices are now connected to each other and to the Internet, generating large data volume moved back and forth between edge and data centers and processed everywhere. This growth is not about to stop, and we have to be ready for cutting-edge technologies when they become cheaper, such as wearable and robotics.
The main solution is decomposing systems into smaller, distributed, efficient, intelligent, and autonomous units responsible for local decision-making and control, letting them explore knowledge stored locally and communicate among themselves only when needed. That solution opens issues when discussing the systems design, data and knowledge exchange, analysis of proper and optimal coupling of system parts as well as integration of subsystems introducing a completely diverse nature into the overall framework.
This workshop aims to collect original papers in the field of distributed systems (i.e., distributed problem solving, orchestration of data and services over Cloud and Edge Computing) and intelligent systems (i.e., swarm intelligence, multi-agent systems, and distributed artificial intelligence). Authors are encouraged to contribute by presenting new studies, algorithms, and use cases. Submitted papers must be original and not currently be under review by another conference or journal.
