The Fifth International Symposium on Computing and Networking

Aomori, Japan, November 19-22, 2017


Aomori Information


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, CANDAR 2017 will be held in Aomori, Japan. CANDAR 2017 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'17 will be held in Aomori, Japan, from November 19-22, 2017.


The symposium and workshop proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing Service 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.
