Dear Distributed Computing Community,

I'd like to follow up on the topic of possibly moving to multiple 
submission deadlines per year, which was briefly mentioned at the DISC 
business meeting. This would address the issue that PODC and DISC 
deadlines are fairly close to each other, leaving a very large gap 
between DISC and PODC without good choices for DC submissions. In 
addition, this would provide more flexibility regarding when to hold the 
conferences. In particular, we could consider colocating DC conferences 
with the goal of reducing overall travel and, by extension, ecological 
footprint of our activities.

I suggest to first gather an impression of the range of opinions. I'll 
then try to summarize and, depending on the outcome, seek to moderate 
some discussion via this mailing list. This is meant to inform 
considerations of the DISC (and possibly PODC) steering committees; this 
mailing list is certainly not the right medium to come to any decisions.

To this effect, please take a few minutes to respond to a handful of 

Thank you and best regards,
