*SCOPE*
*======================================*

The ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing is an
international forum on the theory, design, analysis, implementation and
application of distributed systems and networks. We solicit papers in all
areas of distributed computing. Papers from all viewpoints, including
theory, practice, and experimentation, are welcome. The 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:

- biological distributed algorithms
- blockchain protocols
- coding and reliable communication
- communication networks: algorithms, protocols, applications
- complexity and impossibility results for distributed computing
- concurrency, synchronization, and persistence
- design and analysis of distributed algorithms
- distributed and cloud storage
- distributed and concurrent data structures
- distributed graph algorithms
- distributed machine learning algorithms
- distributed operating systems, middleware, databases
- distributed resource management and scheduling
- fault-tolerance, reliability, self-organization, self-stabilization
- game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing
- high-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
- internet applications, social networks, recommendation systems
- languages, verification, formal methods for distributed systems
- multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
- parallel network computations
- peer-to-peer systems, overlay networks
- population protocols
- quantum and optics based distributed algorithms
- replication and consistency
- security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols
- sensor, mesh, and ad hoc networks
- specifications and semantics
- system-on-chip and network-on-chip architectures
- transactional memory
- wireless networks, mobile computing, autonomous agents


*======================================*
*PAPER SUBMISSION*
*======================================*

A submitted paper should clearly motivate the importance of the problem
being addressed, discuss prior work and its relationship to the paper,
explicitly and precisely state the paper’s key contributions, and outline
the key technical ideas and methods used to achieve the main claims. A
submission should strive to be accessible to a broad audience, as well as
having sufficient details for experts in the area.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format via https://podc2021.hotcrp.com and
fall in two categories: regular papers and brief announcements.

A regular paper must report on original research that has not been
previously published. It is not permitted to submit the same material
concurrently to journals or conferences with proceedings. Format and length
requirements for submissions are stated below. All ideas necessary for an
expert to fully verify the central claims in a paper, including
experimental results, should be included in the submission.

A brief announcement may describe work in progress or work presented
elsewhere. The title of a brief announcement must begin with “Brief
Announcement:”.

Submissions not conforming to the rules stated in this call, as well as
papers outside the scope of the conference, risk being rejected without
consideration.


*======================================*
*SUBMISSION FORMAT*
*======================================*

Submissions must be prepared in LaTeX and use the official ACM Master
article template (acmart.cls, version of 1.73 or greater), available at
https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. The authors must use
`manuscript`, `nonacm` and `anonymous` options when preparing the
submission, and use the ACM format for references. No modifications of the
format or style are allowed. Sample files are available on the PODC website
at https://www.podc.org/podc2021/call-for-papers/.

For regular papers, there is no page limit, and authors are encouraged to
use the "full version" of their paper as the submission. The initial 15
pages should contain a clear presentation of the merits of the paper,
including a discussion of the paper's importance within the context of
prior work and a description of the key technical and conceptual ideas used
to achieve its main claims. The submission must contain full proofs of all
claims in the paper. Although there is no bound on the length of a
submission, material other than the first 15 pages will be read at the
committee's discretion.

Papers submitted as brief announcements should comply with the above rules,
replacing 15 pages with 5 pages.


*======================================*
*ANONYMOUS SUBMISSIONS*
*======================================*

The conference will employ a lightweight double-blind reviewing process.
Submissions should not reveal the identity of the authors in any way. In
particular, authors’ names, affiliations, and email addresses should not
appear at the beginning or in the body of the submission. Authors should
ensure that any references to their own related work are in the third
person (e.g., not “We build on our previous work ...”  but rather “We build
on the work of ...”). The purpose of this process is to help PC members and
external reviewers come to an initial judgment about the paper without
bias, not to make it impossible for them to discover the authors if they
were to try. Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens
the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult. In
particular, important references should not be omitted or anonymized. In
addition, authors should feel free to disseminate their ideas or draft
versions of their paper as they normally would. For example, authors may
post drafts of their papers on the web, submit them to arXiv, and give
talks on their research ideas. Authors with further questions on
double-blind reviewing are encouraged to contact the PC chair by email.


*======================================*
*CONFLICT OF INTEREST*
*======================================*

Indications of conflicts of interest will be required in the submission
form.
A conflict of interest is limited to the following categories:

1. Family member or close friend.
2. Ph.D. advisor or advisee (no time limit), or postdoctoral or
undergraduate mentor or mentee within the past five years.
3. Person with the same affiliation.
4. Involved in an alleged incident of harassment. (It is not required that
the incident be reported.)
5. Collaborators who jointly author works within the last two years.

If you feel that you have a valid reason for a conflict of interest not
listed above, contact the PC chair or either of the Theory of Computing
Advocates affiliated with this conference (Faith Ellen and Idit Keidar). If
there is doubt about the validity of a claim of conflict of interest, the
PC chair may request that a ToC advocate confidentially verify the reason.


*======================================*
*PUBLICATION*
*======================================*

Accepted regular papers of up to 10 pages and brief announcements of up to
3 pages in two-column ACM proceedings format will be included in the
conference proceedings. They must be formatted with the ACM Master
templates using \documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}. If more space than
available in the proceedings for an accepted paper is needed, a full
version must be available publicly, e.g. on arXiv, by the due date for the
proceedings version (May 21, 2021), and the proceedings version must refer
to this.

Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for a
special issue of the Distributed Computing journal. Up to two papers will
be selected to be considered for publication in JACM.

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made
available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks
prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date
affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.


*======================================*
*AWARDS*
*======================================*

Every regular paper is eligible for the best paper 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 for this award, 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.
