Various types of wired and wireless networks and their applications can be seen in many places now-a-days. In the past decade, we have witnessed a significant increase in the number of Internet users and technology hunters. With the aid of wireless communications and demand of flexible anytime, anywhere networking, many types of wireless self-organizing networks have already gained huge popularity among users. For wider support of wireless connectivity and developing easy-to-use technologies, substantial efforts are underway to reduce human intervention in the configuration, formation, and maintenance processes of these networks. Furthermore, different types of distributed computing technologies are widening the scope of our thinking and research issues in networking. The multi-dimensional research issues include wireless and mobility problems, routing protocols and algorithms, resource and service location protocols, performance evaluations of networking systems, ubiquitous systems, context aware ubiquitous environment, mechanisms to improve throughput over wireless links, network management and network security, and other related areas. To meet the vast demand of networking and distributed computing knowledge in the current times, IJIDCS was launched in the year 2010. It is my pleasure to see that the second volume is coming out with some important and solid contributions. The first issue of the second volume includes some of the papers chosen from the 4th International Workshop on Internet and Distributed Computing Systems (IDCS 2011) in conjunction with ICA3PP 2011 conference, held from October 24 to October 26, 2011 in Melbourne, Australia. The selected papers have been considerably extended and revised. Other regular papers are also included to put multi-dimensional fields in one single issue. The topics range from failure detection to secure transactions, processing online documents to complex wireless system and signaling.
