2023: SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
The 42th ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing
June 19-23, 2023, Orlando, FloridaPODC
2023 will be part of the ACM Federated Computing Research Conference, FCRC 2023.
In particular, it will be co-held with SPAA and STOC.https://www.podc.org
DATES (all times are AoE)
All deadlines are at 23:59 AoE in the year 2023.
Abstract submission: January 6th
Full paper submission: January 10th
Notification: March 30th
The conference will be physical-only. For each accepted paper (full
paper or brief announcement), one of the authors is expected to give the
conference presentation on-site. There are currently no plans for zoom
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 and systems
- blockchain protocols
- coding and reliable communication
- communication networks
- concurrency, synchronization, and persistence
- design and analysis of distributed algorithms
- distributed and cloud storage
- distributed and concurrent data structures
- distributed computation for large-scale data
- distributed graph algorithms
- distributed machine learning algorithms
- distributed operating systems, middleware, databases
- distributed resource management and scheduling
- fault-tolerance, reliability, self-organization, and self-stabilization
- game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing
- high-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
- internet applications
- languages, verification, and formal methods for distributed systems
- lower bounds and impossibility results for distributed computing
- mobile computing and autonomous agents
- multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
- peer-to-peer systems, overlay networks, and social networks
- population protocols
- quantum and optics based distributed algorithms
- replication and consistency
- security and cryptography in distributed computing
- specifications and semantics
- system-on-chip and network-on-chip architectures
- transactional memory
- wireless, sensor, mesh, and ad hoc networks
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: 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
Brief Announcements: A brief announcement may
describe work in progress or work presented elsewhere. The title of a
brief announcement must begin with “Brief Announcement: ”.
not conforming to the rules stated in this call, as well as papers
outside the scope of the conference, may be rejected without
Submission Format: Submissions must be prepared in
LaTeX and use the official ACM Master article template acmart.cls,
version of 1.80 or greater, using the following documentclass
The template is available at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template
. No modifications of the format or style are allowed. Sample files are available on the PODC
website at https://www.podc.org/data/podc2023/PODC2023-sample.zip
paper submissions may be up to 15 pages long, excluding references, and
may be followed by a clearly marked appendix. Each submission must
contain full proofs of all claims in the paper. The appendix will be
read at the discretion of the reviewers.
Brief announcement submissions must be at most 4 pages long, excluding references.
practices for citations: Alphabetical orderings of authors can lead to
biases. Therefore, authors are encouraged to avoid “et al.” in
citations, and instead mention all authors’ names.
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 anywhere in the submission. 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:
- A family member or close friend.
- A Ph.D. advisor or advisee (no time limit), or postdoctoral or undergraduate mentor or mentee within the past five years.
- A person with the same affiliation.
- A person involved in an alleged incident of harassment. (It is not required that the incident be reported.)
- Frequent collaborators, or collaborators who have jointly published papers within the last two years.
you feel that you have a valid reason for a conflict of interest not
listed above, contact the PC chair or one of the Theory of Computing
Advocates affiliated with this conference (Faith Ellen and Idit Keidar).
The PC chair may request that a ToC advocate confidentially verify the
reason for a conflict of interest.
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
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, and the proceedings version must
refer to this.
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.
Extended and revised versions of
selected papers will be considered for a special issue of the journal
Distributed Computing. Up to two papers will be selected to be
considered for publication in the Journal of the ACM.
