The 26th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and
Security of Distributed Systems (SSS 2024) will be held at Nagoya
International Center, Aichi, Japan on October 20-22, 2024.

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 four symposium tracks:

Track A. Self-Stabilizing and/or Dynamic 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
middleware design
- Self-stabilizing software-defined infrastructure
- Dynamic networks, time-varying graphs, evolving graphs

Track B. Distributed and Concurrent Computing: Foundations,
Fault-Tolerance and Scalability
- 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. Cryptography and Security
- Cryptographic designs, implementation analysis, and construction methods
- Secure multi-party computation and cryptographic distributed protocols
- Privacy-enhancing technologies and anonymity
- Post-quantum and information theoretic cryptography and security
- Secure software and secure programming methodologies
- Formal methods, semantics and verification of secure systems
- Fault tolerance, reliability, availability of distributed secure systems
- Game-theoretic approaches to secure computing
- Communication and internet: security, authentication and identification
- Cybersecurity for hardware components, mobile, cyber-physical
systems, and internet of things
- Cybersecurity of corporations (applications, end points, and cloud)
- Security and privacy for web applications
- Security of edge and fog computing
- Cryptocurrency and Blockchains

Track D. Moving and Computing
- Mobile agents
- Autonomous mobile robots
- Mobile sensor networks
- Mobile ad-hoc networks
- Population protocols
- Nature-inspired computing
- Programmable particles, nanoscale robots, biological systems, and
related new models

[New Conference Model]
We experiment with a new conference model. There will be TWO
deadlines. The review process for these two deadlines will not overlap
to allow papers rejected during the first review phase to be reworked,
corrected, and enhanced before being resubmitted on the second review
round, if wished by the authors. Papers may be submitted at only one
deadline. Of course, accepted papers of the first review round are
definitely accepted and should not be submitted to the second round.
In case of resubmission, reviews from the first phase will be
transmitted to the reviewers of the second phase.

[Paper Submission]
Papers are to be submitted electronically through EasyChair:
All submissions must conform to the formatting instructions of
Springer LNCS series (see
Each submission must be an original work written in English, in PDF

[Double-blind Review]
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 identities of the
authors. Please feel free to ask the general co-chairs if you have any
questions about the double-blind policy of SSS 2024.

There are two types of submissions: regular papers and brief announcements.
- A regular submission must not exceed 15 pages (including the title,
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.

[Special Issue]
Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered
for a special issue of Theoretical Computer Science (TCS,

[Paper Award]
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.
