The Sixth International Symposium on Computing and Networking


Hida Takayama, Japan, November 27-30, 2018

 [Venue] Takayama Cultural Hall

 [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, 2016 in
Hiroshima, 2017 in Aomori, CANDAR 2018 will be held in Hida Takayama,
Japan. CANDAR 2018 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'18 will be held in Hida Takayama, Japan, from
November 27-30, 2018..

[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
