21st International Conference on Distributed Computing and Intelligent Technology

08th- 11th January, 2025
Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology
Deemed to be University, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India

Call for Papers

Since its establishment in 2004, the ICDCIT conference series has stood as a prestigious global platform for scholars in Computer Science. It serves as a conduit for the exchange of research findings and ideas about the principles and applications of Distributed Computing and Intelligent Technology. The rapid ascendancy and integration of Artificial Intelligence across scientific and engineering domains have prompted the incorporation of ‘Intelligent Technology’ within the conference’s purview. Undoubtedly, these technologies play an indispensable role for individuals and organizations engaged in the design, development, and implementation of large-scale systems featuring AI-based components and subsystems.
The forthcoming 21st International Conference on Distributed Computing and Intelligent Technology (ICDCIT-2025) is scheduled to convene in Bhubaneswar from January 8 to 11, 2025. Hosted by the Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) in Bhubaneswar, India, the event aims to facilitate discussions and advancements in the field. Continuing the tradition, Springer intends to publish the conference proceedings in the esteemed Lecture Notes series in Computer Science, a practice upheld in previous editions.

Special Issue

Extended and revised versions of selected papers from the Distributed Computing track will be taken into consideration for inclusion in a special issue of the international journal Theoretical Computer Science (TCS).

Paper Submission

Authors are cordially invited to electronically submit their papers in English, adhering to the LNCS format, with a maximum length of 16 pages. Submissions should encompass unpublished research findings or inventive practical applications, ensuring the novelty of the work and its non-submission elsewhere. All submissions are to be made electronically, and the submitted papers will undergo a thorough peer-review process for potential inclusion in the conference proceedings. The proceedings are anticipated to be published by Springer-Verlag as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science.


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

Best Paper Award
  • For Best Paper Award, INR 50,000 (for both distributed computing and intelligent technology tracks) prize money will be awarded.
  • For Best Student Paper Award, INR 25,000 (for both distributed computing and intelligent technology tracks) prize money will be awarded.

Note: The conference organizers can decide to split the awards between two papers or not decide to award it to anyone as they seem fit.

Anonymous Submissions (Double Blind Review)

Anonymous submissions are required, with authors’ identities concealed throughout the paper. Names, addresses and affiliations must be omitted. Any references to related work should be in the third person (e.g., “The authors build on previous work…”). This approach aids PC members and external reviewers in forming an unbiased initial judgment. The intention is not to prevent the discovery of authors but to allow an unbiased assessment.

The conference’s double-blind review process is designed to mitigate bias. However, measures taken to ensure anonymity should not compromise the quality of submissions or burden reviewers unnecessarily. Specifically, vital references must not be omitted or anonymized.

Authors with additional inquiries regarding the double-blind review process are encouraged to contact the Program Committee chairs via email. They retain the freedom to share their work through platforms such as ArXiv and other online repositories and are welcome to deliver presentations on their research as customary.

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.

Papers are to be submitted through the Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icdcit2025
