The Fourth International Symposium on Computing and Networking

Hiroshima, Japan, November 22-25, 2016

Technically Cosponsored by
IEICE Technical Committee on Computer Systems (pending approval)
IPSJ Special Interest Group on System Architecture (pending approval)

[Venue] The symposium will be held at Higashi Hiroshima Arts and Culture

[Introduction] Following the success of past ICNC conferences, 2010 in
Hiroshima, 2011 in Osaka, and 2012 in Okinawa, and CANDAR symposiums 2013
in Matsuyama, 2014 in Shizuoka, 2015 in Sapporo, CANDAR 2016 will be held
in Hiroshima, Japan. CANDAR 2016 will serve as a forum for exchanging the
latest findings and experiences ranging from theoretical research to
practical system development in all aspects of computing and networking
including parallel and distributed systems, algorithms, architectures, and
applications. In addition to technical sessions consisting of contributed
papers, the symposium will include invited presentations, a poster
session, tutorials, and workshops. We believe that participants will get
new ideas and insight of computing and networking. CANDAR'16 will be held
in Hiroshima, Japan, from November 22-25, 2016. Hiroshima has two world
heritage sites, Itsukushima Shrine and Atomic Bomb Dorm. It is the best
season to visit Itsukushima Shrine in November for autumn leaves and
colors around the Shrine.

[Publication] The symposium and workshop proceedings will be published by
Conference Publishing Service of IEEE and submitted to IEEE Xplore and
CSDL digital libraries. Also they are submitted for indexing through
INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISI, and other indexing services.
