Synopses & Reviews
This book represents the peer-reviewed proceedings of the Third International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing - IDC 2009 held in Ayia Napa, Cyprus during October 13-14, 2009. The 36 contributions in this book address many topics related to theory and applications of intelligent distributed computing, including: actor-agent systems, agentbased simulation, autonomic computing, computational service economies, defeasible reasoning, distributed data mining, distributed logic programming, e-learning, emergent properties in complex systems, formal methods of intelligent distributed systems, genetic and evolutionary algorithms, information retrieval, knowledge fusion, multi-sensor networks, mobile ad hoc networks, mobile computing, ontologies and metadata, peer-to-peer networks, process modeling and integration, remote sensing distributed systems, secure e-payment systems, social networks, surveillance and disaster management applications, swarm computing, Web services and systems.
Intelligent Distributed Computing III presents the current research in the field in one comprehensive reference. Topics like actor-agent systems, agent-based simulation, autonomic computing and distributed data mining are among the many areas discussed.
