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
Cloud computing, edge computing and data centers
Communication networks
Concurrent and distributed data structures
Dependability, security and privacy of distributed systems
Design and analysis of distributed algorithms
Distributed event processing
Distributed graph algorithms
Distributed machine learning and big data analytics
Distributed operating systems and middleware
Distributed storage, file systems and distributed database systems
Embedded and energy-efficient distributed systems
Formal methods and programming languages applied to distributed systems
Game-theory and economical aspects of distributed computing
High-performance, cluster, and grid computing
Impossibility results for distributed computing
Internet of things and cyber-physical systems
Mobile agents, robots and population protocols
Self-stabilizing, self-organizing and autonomous systems
Synchronization, concurrent algorithms, shared and transactional memory
Social networks, peer-to-peer networks and recommendation systems
Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc and sensor networks

Double-blind review

We will use double-blind peer review. All submissions must be anonymous. We will 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 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 OPODIS 2021.


Papers are to be submitted electronically at the following Submission link opodis2021.bramas.fr <http://opodis2021.bramas.fr/>
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, 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.
