The 24th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security
of Distributed Systems (SSS 2022) will be held in Clermont-Ferrand,
France on November 15-17, 2022.
SSS is an international forum for researchers and practitioners in the
design and development of distributed systems with a focus on systems
that are able to provide guarantees on their structure, performance,
and/or security in the face of an adverse operational environment. The
symposium encourages submissions of original contributions on
fundamental research and practical applications concerning topics in the
three symposium tracks:
Track A. Self-stabilizing Systems: Theory and Practice
- Self-stabilizing systems
- Self-stabilizing protocols and algorithms
- Practically-stabilizing systems
- Variants of self-stabilization
- Topological stabilization
- Autonomic Computing
- Stabilization and self-* properties in hardware, software, and
- Self-stabilizing software defined infrastructure
Track B. Concurrent and Distributed Computing: Foundations,
Fault-tolerance, and Security
- Distributed, concurrent, and fault-tolerant algorithms
- Synchronization protocols
- Shared and transactional memory
- Graph-theoretic concepts for communication networks
- Formal methods, validation, verification, and synthesis
- Social networks
- Game-theory and economical aspects of distributed computing
- Randomization in distributed computing
- High-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
- Network security and privacy
- Blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies
- Applied cryptography
Track C. Dynamic, Mobile, and Nature-Inspired Computing
- Self-organization in mobile agents
- Mobile robots
- Mobile sensor networks
- Mobile ad-hoc networks
- Population protocols
- Dynamic networks, time-varying graphs, evolving graphs
- Nature-inspired computing
- Programmable particles, nanoscale robots, biological systems, and
related new models
NEW CONFERENCE MODEL
This year, we experiment a new conference model with TWO deadlines. The
second deadline is now approaching; see the dates below.
Paper Submission (second deadline): August 5th, 2022 (11:59 PM AoE)
Acceptance Notification: September 23th, 2022
Camera-ready copy due: October 1st, 2022
Papers are to be submitted electronically through Easychair:
All submission must conform to the formatting instructions of Springer
LNCS series (see
Each submission must be an original work written in English, in PDF format.
All submissions must be anonymous. We use a somewhat relaxed
implementation of double-blind peer review: you are free to disseminate
your work through arXiv and other online repositories and give
presentations on your work as usual. However, please make sure you do
not mention your own name or affiliation in the submission, and please
do not include obvious references in the text that reveal your identity.
A reviewer who has not previously seen the paper should be able to read
it without accidentally learning the identity of the authors. Please
feel free to ask the PC chairs if you have any questions about the
double-blind policy of SSS 2022.
There are two types of submission: regular paper and brief announcement.
- A regular submission must not exceed 15 pages (including the title,
authors, abstract, figures, and references).
- A brief announcement submission must not exceed 5 pages and should not
include any appendix.
Additional necessary details for an expert to verify the main claims of
the submission may be included in a clearly marked appendix if extra
space is needed.
Any submission deviating from these guidelines will be rejected without
consideration of its merits. It is recommended that a regular submission
begins with a succinct statement of the problem being addressed, a
summary of the main results or conclusions, a brief explanation of their
significance, a brief statement of the key ideas, and a comparison with
related work, all tailored to a non-specialist. Technical development of
the work, directed to the specialist, should follow. Papers outside of
the conference scope will be rejected without review. For the second
round only, if requested by the authors on the cover page, a regular
submission that is not selected for a regular presentation will also be
considered for the brief announcement format. This will not affect
consideration of the paper for a regular presentation.
Regular papers and brief announcements will be included in the
conference proceedings. Conference proceedings will be published by
Springer in the LNCS conference series.
Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for
a special issue of the international journal Theoretical Computer
Prizes will be given to the best regular paper and best student regular
paper. A regular paper is eligible for the best student paper if at
least one of its authors is a full-time student at submission time.
Authors should clearly indicate whether their submission is eligible to
be considered for the best student paper award (e.g., using a \thanks in
the title). The PC may decline to confer awards or may split awards.
