ICDCN 2018 will be soliciting submissions as either regular or short (concise contribution) papers. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper.

Regular Papers should not exceed 10 pages double column including figures, tables, and references in standard ACM format. Additional details may be included in a clearly-marked appendix (containing all technical ideas and proofs necessary for an expert to fully verify the claims of the paper) that will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Papers must be submitted electronically in printable PDF form via the EasyChair submission management system. Some papers not accepted as regular papers may be accepted as "concise papers" with 4 pages in the proceedings while full papers will be allowed 10 pages.

Best Paper Award: The ICDCN TPC plans to award a Best Paper Award, independently for each of the two tracks. This award will be based on the paper's technical merit, the opinions of the reviewers AND the presentation quality at the conference.

Special Issue: The authors of selected best papers in the Distributed Computing track will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for publication in Theoretical Computer Science (TCS - A) journal, Elsevier. The authors of selected best papers in the Networking track will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for publication in Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC), journal, Elsevier.

Warning: It is ACM policy to forbid double submissions where the same paper is submitted to more than one conference/journal concurrently. Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
