NWDCN 2019
International workshop on networking women in distributed computing and networks
(In conjunction with ICDCN 2019) 4-7 January, 2019 || Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India

INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON NETWORKING WOMEN IN DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING AND NETWORKS (NWDCN)

Recent progress in the areas of distributed computing, wired and wireless networks and mobile computing encouraged many women engineers to work in these fields. Over the past decade, wireless communication and mobile computing have become the most influential technologies in the evolution of new form of distributed computing. Additionally, advances in cloud computing has changed the world of computing by eliminating the requirement of owning large-scale servers by the organizations and shifting the computing tasks towards the data centers. The combination of new forms of networks and distributed computing have given rise of emerging areas like Edge computing, Internet of Things, Big Data management and analytics, Social network analysis etc. Originated from RFID and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), the paradigm of edge computing and IoT have been transforming every aspect of human life including healthcare, energy, transportation, and manufacturing. This workshop will consider the research works which have escalated this change in the computing world. The workshop ill also highlight the applications which have been built on top of the modern distributed computing systems with particular focus on healthcare, environment monitoring, transportation and smart city.

The workshop will focus on networking the women researchers working in the emerging fields of (but not limited to):

  • ? Architecture and Networking of Distributed Computing
  • ? Mobile and Cloud Computing
  • ? Network Security, Privacy and Reliability
  • ? Scheduling and Resource Management
  • ? Internet of Things
  • ? Edge Computing
  • ? Social Networks
  • ? Large Scale Complex Networks
  • ? Big data storage and I/O
  • ? Applications and services in healthcare, environment monitoring, transportation and smart city.

Over the past decade, wireless communication and mobile computing have become the most influential technologies in the evolution of new form of distributed computing. Additionally, advances in cloud computing has changed the world of computing by eliminating the requirement of owning large-scale servers by the organizations and shifting the computing tasks towards the data centers. The combination of new forms of large scale complex networks and distributed computing have given rise of emerging areas like Internet of Things (IoT), Edge Computing, Social Networks, Big Data management and analysis etc. Originated from RFID and wireless sensor networks (WSNs), the paradigm of IoT has been transforming every aspect of human life including healthcare, energy, transportation, and manufacturing. This workshop will consider the research works which have escalated this change in the computing world. The workshop will also highlight the applications which have been built on top of the complex networks based on distributed computing systems with particular focus on healthcare, transportation and smart city. The workshop will focus on women participation in the research targeting the following (but not limited to) emerging fields:
  • ? Architecture and Networking of Distributed Computing
  • ? Mobile and Cloud Computing
  • ? Network Security, Privacy and Reliability’
  • ? Scheduling and Resource Management
  • ? Internet of Things
  • ? Edge Computing
  • ? Social Networks
  • ? Large Scale Complex Networks
  • ? Big data storage and I/O
  • ? Applications and services in healthcare, transportation and smart city
