the Fourth International Conference on Networking and Distributed Computing

========================== Important Dates ==========================

Paper Submission: November 1, 2013
Acceptance Notification: December 1, 2013
Camera-ready papers: December 10, 2013
Conference Date: December 21-24, 2013

========================== Scope and Objective ==========================

The networking and distributed computing technologies are the most vital
parts of modern computing technologies. The Fourth IEEE International
Conference on Networking and Distributed Computing (ICNDC2013) attempts
to bring together active researchers and practitioners to share their
views and discuss hot topics and trends on networking and distributed
computing. The scope of the conference covers three tracks of
distributed computing and distributed systems, networking and
distributed Applications.

All accepted papers will be published by Conference Publishing Services
(CPS), which will be sent for  citation by EI Compendex and ISTP, and be
archived by IEEE-XploreTM and the IEEE Computer Society (CSDL) digital
libraries.  Some of papers will be recommended to be published in SCI-
or EI-indexed Journals. The topics addressed by the conference include
(but are not limited to):

========================== Conference Venue ==========================

The conference will be held in  City University of Hong Kong , China.

 City University of Hong Kong (Abbreviation: CityU; Chinese: 香港城市大學) is
 a public research university located in New Kowloon, Hong Kong. CityU
 was originally founded in 1984 as City Polytechnic of Hong Kong and
 became a fully accredited university later in 1994.

The university now offers more than 130 Bachelor degree programmes
within six Schools and Colleges, including Business, Liberal Arts and
Social Sciences, Science and Engineering, Creative Media, Energy and
Environment, and Law. Post-graduate studies are offered through the Chow
Yei Ching School of Graduate Studies. Moreover, the School of Continuing
and Professional Education (SCOPE), an extension of CityU, provides
quality continuing education for professional practice. With its mission
to become a leading world-class hub for professional education and
academic research, the 19-year-old CityU is fast-growing in recent years
across the region and has become one of the four renowned universities
in Hong Kong within a very short period of time.

Hong Kong (香港) is one of the two Special Administrative Regions of the
People's Republic of China, the other being Macau. It is situated on
China's south coast and, enclosed by the Pearl River Delta and South
China Sea, it is known for its expansive skyline and deep natural
harbour. With a land mass of 1,104 km2 (426 sq mi) and a population of
seven million people, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated
areas in the world. Hong Kong's population is 93.6% ethnic Chinese and
6.4% from other groups. Hong Kong's Han Chinese majority originate
mainly from the cities of Guangzhou and Taishan in the neighbouring
Guangdong province.

Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the First Opium
War (1839–42). Originally confined to Hong Kong Island, the colony's
boundaries were extended in stages to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 and
then the New Territories in 1898. It was occupied by Japan during the
Pacific War (1941–45), after which the British resumed control until
1997, when China resumed sovereignty.The region espoused minimum
government intervention under the ethos of positive non-interventionism
during the colonial era. The time period greatly influenced the current
culture of Hong Kong, often described as "East meets West", and the
educational system, which used to loosely follow the system in England
until reforms implemented in 2009.

Under the principle of "one country, two systems", Hong Kong has a
different political system from mainland China. Hong Kong's independent
judiciary functions under the common law framework. Hong Kong Basic Law,
its constitutional document, which stipulates that Hong Kong shall have
a "high degree of autonomy" in all matters except foreign relations and
military defence, governs its political system. Although it has a
burgeoning multi-party system, a small-circle electorate controls half
of its legislature. The head of the government, Chief Executive of Hong
Kong is chosen by an Election Committee of 400 to 1,200 members, a
situation that will be in effect during the first 20 years of Chinese

As one of the world's leading international financial centres, Hong Kong
has a major capitalist service economy characterised by low taxation and
free trade, and the currency, Hong Kong dollar, is the eighth most
traded currency in the world. The lack of space caused demand for denser
constructions, which developed the city to a centre for modern
architecture and the world's most vertical city.  Hong Kong has one of
the highest per capita incomes in the world.  The dense space also led
to a highly developed transportation network with the public transport
travelling rate exceeding 90 percent,  the highest in the world.  Hong
Kong has numerous high international rankings in various aspects. For
instance, its economic freedom, financial and economic competitiveness,
quality of life, corruption perception,  Human Development Index are all
ranked highly. According to estimates from both UN and WHO, Hong Kong
had the longest life expectancy of any region in the world in 2012.
Hong Kong also has the highest average IQ score in 81 countries around
the world.
