Intelligent computing is becoming a mature ?eld of information and communication technology, covering a hybrid palette of methods and techniques derived from clas- cal arti?cial intelligence, computational intelligence, multi-agent systems etc. Int- ligent computing is generally known to be computationally intensive from the point of view of resources required: time, memory, bandwidth. As such high resource c- sumption is one of its main drawbacks, distributed computing is expected to give an impetus to its practical utilization. Moreover, intelligent techniques have also proved their usefulness to the core distributed computing technologies like planning and scheduling, load balancing, replication, resource allocation and management, and its applications. Therefore, the emerging ?eld of intelligent distributed computing can be expected both, to bring a fruitful cooperation and to pose new challenges of adaptation of both areas. Intelligent and Distributed Computing 2007 - IDC 2007 was the ?rst Inter- tional Symposium aimed at bringing together researchers involved in intelligent and distributed computing to allow cross-fertilization and search for synergies of ideas and to enable advancement of research in these exciting sub-?elds of computer s- ence. IDC was started as an initiative of research groups from: (i) Systems Research Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland and (ii) Software Engine- ing Department of the University of Craiova, Craiova, Romania. IDC 2007 was held in Craiova, Romania during October 18-19, 2007. This book represents the peer-reviewed proceedings of the IDC 2007. We - ceived 52 submissions from 24 countries.
