Rapid advances in Information and Communication Technologies coupled to new requirements of emergent applications such as smart grids, smart cities, e-healthcare, etc., urge the development of efficient architectures and innovative solutions to overcome new digital society challenges : big data, security and privacy, energy, etc.

International Conference on Networks, Distributed Systems and advanced Applications (INDS'2014) is intended to be an excellent forum where both academia and industry experts from different communities (Networking, Distributed Computing, Security, Emergent smart systems, etc) will discuss recent advances in the broad and quickly-evolving fields of computer and communication networks, and to highlight key issues, identify trends, and develop visions for the networking and distributed computing domain.

INDS 2014 will be held at Bejaia , an exciting and historical city located on the south coast of the Mediterranean Sea in Algeria.

The conference sessions will include featured keynotes, tutorials, technical presentations (regular papers and short papers), posters, as well as demonstrations and doctoral symposium.

Distinguished papers accepted and presented at INDS'2014, after further revisions, will be published in special issues of prestigious international journals.
