Call For Papers

5th International Conference on Complex Distributed Systems (CODS'2011)

Mannheim, Germany, 5-7 December 2011

One of the most distinguishing requirements upon Information and Communication Technologies is today's ever-changing, highly open dynamic environments in which large-scale ICT systems are situated to operate. Challenges for ICT systems engineering immediately arise including, e.g., systems scalability, systems ultra-dependability, systems convergence against uncertainty and emergence, and so forth. In recent years, emergence, adaptation, self-organization, self-management, etc. have received extensive interests in both academics and industries of software, computing and communications.

CODS'11 conference aims to provide an international forum for the researchers and practitioners in the related subject areas to exchange research results, experiences, as well as the visions of the future and the scientific and practical problems that challenge the current technology development.

Important Dates
1 July 2011 Submission of manuscripts
5 August 2011 Notification of acceptance
2 September 2011 Camera-Ready Version (CRV) due
5-7 December 2011 Conferences

CODS'2011 and its workshops only accepts manuscripts of original contributions. A manuscript for submission to the Conference or workshop should neither have been published nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts submitted will go through peer reviews which are to be conducted by 3-4 members of the International Program Committees of the Conference and workshops, based on which the acceptance decision will be made. To avoid confusion, please do not make duplicate submissions to the conference or workshop at the same time.

To make a submission of manuscript, please upload files in PDF format by following the online submission link below.


A manuscript for submission to the Conference or workshop should be prepared according to the Instructions for Authors of the Journal. Sample Word Doc and Latex file of Camera-Ready Versions (CRV) are available at At the stage of submission, there are no particular restrictions on the length of manuscripts (so long as it's within maximum 18 pages). However, there will be page limits for CRVs depending on the categories to which papers are accepted (and over-length pages may be subject to page charges).

CODS'2011 welcomes proposals for Workshops, Invited Sessions and Tutorials on newly emerging areas. Please discuss with the Chairs.

Proceedings and Journal Publication (for CODS11 and all workshops)

All accepted papers of the Conference and Workshops will be included in the electronic Proceedings, which will be available at the Conference and workshops. At the same time, high-quality papers of the Conference and Workshops will be published in the International Journal ) (ISSN 2044-7272) which will be available at the Conference and workshops. Best quality papers of the Conferences will also be published in the International Journal ) (ISSN 1751-1461) available at the Conference and workshops.
