* Corona contingency plan

The steering committee is monitoring the situation with COVID19 and
is considering measures to ensure a safe environment for all participants.
Announcements will be published on the conference's website.

If the situation warrants it, the conference will either be postponed or
held virtually. Several conferences are exploring possibilities and we will
be learning from their experience.
LIPIcs assured us that they will publish the proceedings even if
the conference is virtual.


* DATES

Registration (regular papers and brief announcements): May 7, 2020 (AoE)
Submission (regular papers and brief announcements): May 14, 2020 (AoE)

Notification (regular papers): July 20, 2020
Notification (brief announcements): July 27, 2020
Final version for proceedings: August 10, 2020

Main conference: October 13-15, 2020
Workshops: October 12 and 16, 2020


* SCOPE

Original contributions to theory, design, implementation,
modeling, analysis, or application of distributed systems and networks
are solicited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-  Biological and nature-inspired distributed algorithms
-  Blockchain protocols
-  Communication networks: protocols, architectures and applications
-  Distributed and concurrent data structures, replication and consistency
-  Distributed computing: Algorithms and upper bounds
-  Distributed computing: Lower bounds and impossibility results
-  Distributed graph algorithms
-  Distributed machine learning and data science
-  Distributed operating systems, middleware, database systems
-  Experimental evaluation of distributed algorithms and systems
-  Fault tolerance, reliability, availability
-  Formal methods for distributed computing: verification, synthesis and
testing
-  Game-theoretic and knowledge-based approaches to distributed computing
-  Internet and Web applications, social networks and recommendation systems
-  Massively-parallel, high-performance, cloud and grid computing
-  Mobile agents, autonomous distributed systems, swarm robotics
-  Multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
-  Population protocols and chemical reaction networks
-  Security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols
-  Self-stabilizing, self-organizing, and autonomous systems
-  Synchronization, persistence and transactional memory
-  System-on-chip and network-on-chip architectures
-  Wireless, mobile, sensor and ad-hoc networks


* SUBMISSIONS

Papers are to be submitted electronically at https://disc2020.hotcrp.com/

Submissions must be in English in pdf format and they must be prepared
using the LaTeX style template for LIPIcs (
https://submission.dagstuhl.de/documentation/authors) with
\documentclass[a4paper,anonymous,USenglish]{lipics-v2019}.

Submissions must be anonymous, without any author names, affiliations, or
email addresses. The contact information of the authors will be entered
separately in HotCRP.

Submissions not conforming to the submission guidelines and papers outside
of the scope of the conference will be rejected without consideration.


* NOTES ON DOUBLE-BLIND PEER REVIEW

We will use a fairly relaxed implementation of double-blind peer review in
DISC 2020. 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.

Brief announcements should also be submitted without author names and
affiliations so that a reviewer can form an initial judgment without bias,
but they can contain a reference to the full version of the work in the
bibliography.

Please feel free to ask the PC chair if you have any questions about the
double-blind policy of DISC 2020.


* REGULAR PAPERS

Regular submission must report on original research that has not previously
appeared and is not currently under review for or concurrently submitted to
a journal or a conference with published proceedings. Any overlap with a
published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated. A
submission must not exceed 15 pages, excluding the references.

All of the ideas necessary for an expert to fully verify the central claims
in the paper, including experimental results, should be included, some of
which may be placed in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the
discretion of the program committee.


* BRIEF ANNOUNCEMENTS

Brief announcements may describe work in progress or work
presented elsewhere.

The length of a brief announcement should be at most 3 pages (including
everything). The title of a brief announcement must begin with "Brief
Announcement:".

A regular submission that is not selected for a regular presentation may be
invited by the PC for the brief announcements track.


* PUBLICATION

The proceedings will be published by LIPIcs. The final version of the paper
has to be formatted following the LIPIcs guidelines. Regular papers will
have 15 pages in the final proceedings (excluding references), and brief
announcements will have 3 pages in the proceedings (including everything).
If more space is needed, the authors are encouraged to post the full
version e.g. on arXiv and refer to it in their paper.

Accepted papers and brief announcements must be presented by one of the
authors, with a full registration, at the conference site, and according to
the final schedule. Any submission accepted into the technical program but
not presented on-site will be withdrawn from
the final proceedings.


* AWARDS

Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper.
To be eligible for the best student paper award at least one of the paper
authors must be a full-time student at the time of submission, and the
student(s) must have made a significant contribution to the paper.
