The Second International Conference on Networking and Computing

Osaka, Japan, November 30 – December 2, 2011


Technically Cosponsored by IEICE Technical Committee on Computer Systems

In cooperation with Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Osaka University


International Conference on Networking and Computing (ICNC) will serve as a forum for scientists and engineers of academy and industry around the world to exchange and discuss the latest research findings in all aspects of networking and computing including parallel and distributed systems, architectures, and applications. In addition to technical sessions consisting of contributed papers, the conference will include invited presentations, a poster session, tutorials, and workshops. We believe that participants will get new ideas and research results of networking and computing. Following ICNC'10 in Hiroshima, the Second International Conference on Networking and Computing will be held in Osaka from November 30-December 2, 2011.

Osaka is the second largest city in Japan. Its metropolitan area is highly ranked in the world, with nearly 18 million people. The tourist attractions include: Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan (famous for the world's second-largest aquarium tank), Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Castle Park, Shitennō-ji(the oldest buddhist temple in Japan, established in 593 AD), etc. Also, other famous tourist cities, Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe are only 30-minute distance by local train.
