We, the organizers of ICDCN 2021, are fully aware of the potential impact the COVID-19 pandemic. If needed, we will be exploring contingency plans, such as running it virtually, depending on the situation in the next several months. However, the conference will be held one way or another, and we are committed to present a high quality technical program in terms of top-notch keynote speakers, competitively accepted peer-reviewed papers (proceedings published by the ACM), exciting panels, and other associated events like cutting-edge workshops, posters and demo session. If the conference will be held in person, we will accept all reasonable requests from individuals who are unable to travel and attend due to the pandemic and related reasons. In any case, all the accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by the ACM.


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 22nd edition of this conference will be held in a historical city, Nara, Japan.

Close to Kyoto and Osaka and quickly accessible by train, Nara has World Heritage sites and well-preserved temples and shrines.

ICDCN 2021 will comprise of a highly selective technical program consisting of refereed regular and short papers, panel discussions as well as focused workshops on emerging topics about distributed computing and networking. See Call for Papers for more details. Conference proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
