*** Call for Papers ***

The 22nd International Conference on Principles of Distributed Systems 
December 17-19, 2018,
Hong Kong, China


OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge 
on distributed computing and distributed computer systems.  OPODIS aims 
at having a balanced program that combines theory and practice of 
distributed systems. OPODIS solicits papers in all aspects of 
distributed systems, including theory, specification, design, system 
building, and performance.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Biological distributed algorithms
Blockchain technology and theory
Communication networks (protocols, architectures, services, applications)
Cloud computing and data centers
Dependable distributed algorithms and systems
Design and analysis of concurrent and distributed data structures
Design and analysis of distributed algorithms
Distributed event processing
Distributed operating systems, middleware, and distributed database systems
Distributed storage and file systems, large-scale systems, and big data 
Edge computing
Embedded and energy-efficient distributed systems
Game-theory and economical aspects of distributed computing
High-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
Internet of things and cyber-physical systems
Mesh and ad-hoc networks (wireless, mobile, sensor), location and 
context-aware systems
Mobile agents, robots, and rendezvous
Programming languages, formal methods, specification and verification 
applied to distributed systems
Randomization in distributed computing
Security and privacy, cryptographic protocols
Self-stabilization, self-organization, autonomy
Social systems, peer-to-peer and overlay networks
Synchronization, concurrent algorithms, shared and transactional memory

Important dates:

Abstract registration:		Friday, August 31, 2018 (strict)
Submission deadline: 		Wednesday, September 5, 2018 (strict)
Acceptance notification: 	        Friday, October 26, 2018

Submission instructions:

Papers are to be submitted electronically through EasyChair at the 
following linkhttps://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=opodis2018. 
Submissions must be in English in pdf format and they must be prepared 
using the LaTeX style templates for LIPIcs and choosing the A4 paper 
option. A submission must not exceed 16 pages, including the cover page, 
figures, tables and references. The cover page should include the title 
of the paper, the authors’ names, affiliations and e-mails, the contact 
author,  a list of keywords, and  an abstract of 1 to 2 paragraphs 
summarizing the
contributions of the submission.

The submission must contain a clear presentation of the merits of the 
paper, including discussion of its importance, prior work, and an 
outline of key technical ideas and methods used to achieve the main 
claims. All of the ideas necessary for an expert to fully verify the 
central claims in the submission, including experimental results, should 
be included either in the submission or
in a clearly marked appendix. The appendix will be read at the 
discretion of the reviewers.
If desired, the appendix can be a copy of the full paper.

A submission must report on original research that has not previously 
appeared in a journal or conference with published proceedings. It 
should not be concurrently submitted to such a journal or conference. 
Any overlap with a published or concurrently submitted paper must be 
clearly indicated. The Program Chairs reserve the right to reject 
submissions that are out of scope,  of clearly inferior quality, or that 
violate the submission guidelines. Each of the remaining papers will 
undergo a thorough reviewing process.

OPODIS has post-proceedings published by Leibniz International 
Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) in gold open access mode. The 
proceedings become available online, free of charge, after the 
conference. Preliminary versions of the proceedings will be available to 
participants at the conference electronically. The camera-ready version 
of a paper must have the same format and be of the same length as its 
submitted version. Extended and revised versions of selected papers will 
be considered for a special journal issue.


Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper (i.e. 
primarily written by a student).
Eligibility for the best student paper award should be clearly indicated 
on the cover page.
