Today’s distributed and networked systems, saturated with large-scale communications and computing, have become increasingly complex. New solutions are urgently required to effectively tackle the soaring complexities of such systems. The Technical Committee on Self-Organized Distributed and Pervasive Systems aims to explore fundamental methodologies and technologies for engineering self-organized distributed and networked computing and communications systems. Of particular interest are the following areas:
- cloud computing and services,
- context-aware computing,
- Internet of Things, ubiquitous/pervasive computing,
- multi-agent and distributed simulation,
- security challenges in web services and cloud computing,
- security challenges in wireless communications and mobile computing,
- service-oriented computing, web services,
- situated and autonomic communications,
- wireless ad hoc networking, autonomic networking.

The Technical Committee on Self-Organized Distributed and Pervasive Systems aims to be the focal forum worldwide for academics and practitioners active in the frontiers of self-organized distributed and pervasive systems. We warmly welcome and highly value your support and involvement in the Technical Committee, which in return will provide you with a global network of excellence and a wide spectrum of collaboration opportunities in the community, e.g., in editing Journal special issues and book series, and organizing invited sessions and workshops which are technically supported by the Technical Committee. In particular, we organize Special Sessions, Workshops and/or Tutorial Sessions at the annual IEEE SMCS conferences, and contribute towards the technical initiatives of IEEE SMCS (e.g., thematic books on Systems Science and Engineering) and technical activities of IEEE SMCS chapters around the world.
