PODC solicits papers in all areas of distributed computing. Papers
from all viewpoints, including theory, practice, and experimentation,
are welcome. The common goal of the conference is to improve
understanding of the principles underlying distributed computing.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following subjects:

- distributed algorithms: design, analysis, and complexity
- communication networks: architectures, services, protocols, applications
- multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
- shared and transactional memory, synchronization protocols,
concurrent programming
- fault-tolerance, reliability, availability, self organization
- Internet applications, social networks, recommendation systems
- distributed operating systems, middleware platforms, databases
- game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing
- peer-to-peer systems, overlay networks, distributed data management
- high-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
- wireless networks, mobile computing, autonomous agents
- context-aware distributed systems
- security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols
- sensor, mesh, and ad hoc networks
- specification, semantics, verification,

Submission: Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the
guidelines available on the conference web page
(http://www.podc.org/podc2012). Note that deadlines are firm.

A submission for a regular presentation must report original research.
Papers submitted for regular presentations must contain results that
have not previously appeared, and have not been concurrently submitted
to a journal or conference with published proceedings. Any partial
overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must
be clearly indicated. Papers for regular presentation include (1) a
cover page, stating the title of the paper, the authors' names and
affiliations, an abstract, and indication of whether the paper should
be considered for the best student paper award, and if so the name(s)
of the student(s) recommended for the award; (2) an extended abstract
of up to 10 pages (excluding figures); and (3) one to two additional
pages for references only. Additional details may be included in a
clearly marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the
program committee. This appendix may simply be the complete paper.

Formatting: letter-size (8 1/2 x 11 inch) paper, single-column format,
using at least 1 inch margins, 11-point font, and ample spacing all
around. Submissions deviating from these guidelines risk rejection
without consideration of their merits.

A submission for a brief announcement must be no longer than 3
single-column pages on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font,
including title, authors' names and affiliations, and references. Such
submissions may describe work in progress or work presented elsewhere.
A submission that is not selected for regular presentation may be
invited for a brief announcement.

Publication: Regular papers and brief announcements will be included
in the conference proceedings. Regular papers receive up to 10
letter-size pages, brief announcements receive up to 2 letter-size

Awards: Every regular paper is eligible for the best paper award and
the best presentation award. Regular papers co-authored by full-time
students may also be eligible for the best student paper award---for a
paper to be considered, the nominated authors should be full time
students at the time of submission and they should be principally
responsible for the paper's contributions. The program committee may
decline to make these awards or may split them.
