- Distributed and concurrent data structures
- Distributed algorithms for clouds and IoT
- Distributed graph algorithms
- Distributed machine learning and data science
- Distributed operating systems, middleware, database systems
- Distributed resource management
- Fault tolerance, reliability, self-organization, self-stabilization
- Formal methods for distributed computing: verification, synthesis and
- 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
- Overlay networks and peer-to-peer networks
- Population protocols and chemical reaction networks

- Security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols
- Synchronization, persistence and transactional memory
- Wireless, mobile, sensor and ad-hoc networks




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.

There are two types of submissions: regular papers and brief announcements.
Regular papers must report on original research that has not previously
been published (and may not be concurrently submitted to other journals or
conferences with proceedings). 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. A brief announcement may also
present a result that is short and elegant, but does not require a longer
paper. It may also be used to announce a software distribution or an
experimental result of interest that can be concisely described.

A paper that is not accepted as a regular paper may be invited as a brief
announcement. In this case, per LIPIcs guidelines, the brief announcement
should be submitted for review by the deadline (July 26). All brief
announcements, whether originally submitted as a brief announcement or as a
paper, will receive the same time in the conference and pages in the


*Submission format*

Submissions must be in English in pdf format and they must be prepared
using the LaTeX style template for LIPIcs ( with


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

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. (Illustrative figures are encouraged.) 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.

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


*Anonymous Submissions*

We will use a relaxed implementation of double-blind peer review.
Submissions must not reveal the identity of the authors in any way. In
particular, authors’ names and affiliation should not appear in the
document itself. 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.

You are free to disseminate your work through arXiv and other online
repositories and give presentations on your work as usual. Moreover,
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.

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

Please feel free to ask the PC chair if you have any questions about the
double-blind policy of DISC 2023.


*Conflict of Interest*

The submission form provides an opportunity to specify conflicts of
interest with any of the PC members. If you feel that you have a valid
reason for a conflict of interest beyond the PC members, or any other
issues related to the fair treatment of your submission, contact the PC
chair, Rotem Oshman, or the SafeTOC representative for DISC, Faith Ellen.


*Participation at DISC*


It is expected that accepted papers and brief announcements be presented
in-person at the conference.




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 and according to the final schedule.

Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for a
special issue of the journal Distributed Computing.

The best paper at DISC will be considered for publication in the Journal of
the ACM.




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.
