The first International Conference on Advances in Distributed Computing and Machine Learning(ICADCML-2020) is an annual forum that will bring together ideas, innovations, lessons, etc. associated with distributed computing and machine learning, and their application in different areas. Nowadays, most computing systems are available for parallel and distributed computing. Distributed computing performs an increasingly important role in modern data processing, information fusion, and electronics engineering. Particularly, applying machine learning in distributed environments is becoming an element of high added value and economic potential. Research on Intelligent Distributed Systems has matured during the last decade and many effective applications are now deployed. The machine learning is changing our society. Its application in distributed environments, such as the Internet, electronic commerce, mobile communications, wireless devices, distributed computing, and so on is increasing and is becoming an element of high added value and economic potential, both industrial and research. These technologies are changing constantly as a result of the large research and technical effort being undertaken in both universities and businesses. The exchange of ideas between scientists and technicians from both academic and business areas is essential to facilitate the development of systems that meet the demands of today's society. The technology transfer in this field is still a challenge and for that reason, this type of contributions will be specially considered in this symposium. This conference is the forum in which to present the application of innovative techniques to complex problems.
