The FINA-2014 covers novel theories, designs, and applications of information systems and network applications in advanced distributed system environments. Networks of today are going through a rapid evolution and are giving a great influence to our society. In addition, computing models are changing to new architecture like Cloud computing systems, Grid computing systems, and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) computing models. For this reason, it is significant to discuss how to design and realize high-performance computation models and network applications for distributed systems.

The FINA-2014 International Symposium seeks original contributions in all relevant areas, including but not limited to the following topics. Papers of high quality in the following areas will be invited:

  • Communication Protocol and Architecture
