The First International Symposium on Computing and Networking (CANDAR 2013) was held in Matsuyama, Japan, from December 4th to 6th, 2013. This issue includes the extended version of 12 (twelve) papers that have been presented at the symposium. The first 4 (four) papers have been selected from invited keynote and tutorial talks of CANDAR 2013. Each of these papers has been thoroughly reviewed by experts. The final version, listed below, incorporates the reviewers’ comments and suggestions.

- Selected Papers from Keynote and Tutorial Talks

  • Naoaki Yamanaka, Hidetoshi Takeshita, Satoru Okamoto and Takehiro Sato, Using Optical- Approaches to Raise Energy Efficiency of Future Central and/or Linked Distributed Data Center Network Services;

  • Ying-Dar Lin, Research Roadmap Driven by Network Benchmarking Lab (NBL): Deep Packet Inspection, Traffic Forensics, Embedded Benchmarking, Software Defined Net- working and Beyond;

  • Fumihiko Ino, Yosuke Oka, and Kenichi Hagihara, A Fine Grained Cycle Sharing System with Cooperative Multitasking on GPUs;

  • Toru Hasunuma, Toshimasa Ishii, Hirotaka Ono, and Yushi Uno, Algorithmic Aspects of Distance Constrained Labeling: A Survey.

The remaining 8 (eight) papers are extended version of papers presented at the main CANDAR 2013 symposium or workshops.
