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 
middleware design
- 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


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 
Science (TCS, 


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.
