Dear Distributed Computing Community,

as has been discussed at the PODC business meeting and on Zulip, a task 
force has been formed to propose options for (i) changing the PODC/DISC 
deadline schedule and/or (ii) moving to a publication model based on 
journal-style reviewing.

We have prepared a document outlining our proposals and the underlying 
rationales, alongside a discussion of their (perceived) merits:

We now would like to ask you for your input. Please do so by filling out 
this survey after reading the above document:

We expect that carefully reading the document and responding to the 
survey takes 60-90 minutes. We apologize for the inconvenience, but hope 
that you agree that these questions are sufficiently important to 
warrant this effort.

The *deadline *for responses is *Tuesday, October 22, 2020, at 23:59, 
AoE *(i.e., one week from now).
*Stefan Schmid has agreed to summarize and discuss the results in the 
next edition of the EATCS Bulletin. We encourage a community discussion 
based on this article and the (published) survey results, for which a 
chat platform will be avaiable; details will follow in due time.
This discussion should lead up to a community meeting at DISC (Oct 12 - 
16), where informed decisions can be made.

Please feel free to approach us with any questions or concerns.

Best regards,

Christian Cachin
