Call For Papers

CALL FOR PAPERS (with something new)
17th International Conference On Principles Of DIstributed Systems (OPODIS 2013)
December 16-18, 2013, Nice, France
Important dates:?
Submission deadline: Sunday June 23
Green-flag to Phase 2 notification: Monday July 8
Acceptance notification: Monday September 2
Camera-ready copy due: Monday September 30

OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge
on distributed computing and distributed computer systems. All aspects
of distributed systems are within the scope of OPODIS, including
theory, specification, design, performance, and implementation. Where
OPODIS has traditionally been strong in covering theoretical aspects
of distributed systems, for this year's event we are additionally
soliciting submissions that address the boundary between theoretical
solutions and practical implementations, covering experimentation and
quantitative assessments.

A good paper will typically consider a truly interesting distributed
computing/systems problem and propose an original, compelling solution
with a convincing qualitative, formal and/ or quantitative
validation. Topics covered by OPODIS include, but are not limited to:

* Distributed algorithms
* Dependable computing
* Distributed databases
* Distributed operating systems
* Cloud-based distributed systems
* (Geo)spatial distributed systems, including wireless distributed systems
* Extreme distributed systems (e.g., very large-scale systems)
* Embedded and mobile distributed systems (e.g., robot-based systems)
* Distributed computing: theory and practice
* Self-* solutions for distributed systems
* Security for distributed systems
* Network science and Complex systems in relation to distributed systems

Reviewing Procedure

For this year's event, the reviewing and selection of papers will be
done in two phases.

Phase 1: Submitted papers are briefly reviewed by a subcommittee of
the PC, with the aim to filter out the papers that have a very low
chance of being accepted. Papers will be selected for originality,
clarity, and completeness. Each paper rejected during this phase will
receive a brief review report, along with an immediate notification.

Phase 2: Submitted papers that passed through the first phase will
undergo a thorough reviewing process and will each be extensively
reviewed by at least four PC members. The best papers will be accepted
for the final OPODIS program and published in the proceedings.

Submitted papers must be written in English and must not exceed 12
letter-size pages using 11-point font and reasonable margins,
including figures, tables and references. The first page must include
the title of the paper, author(s) names and affiliation, an abstract,
address for correspondence, fax number, email, and a list of
keywords. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked
appendix that will be read at the discretion of the PC. The papers
must be submitted electronically per instructions at


The selection of contributions to be presented at the conference and
published in the proceedings will be based on peer-review by the
Programme Committee. The proceedings volume will be published in the
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. It is required
that each accepted paper be presented at the conference by one of its
authors. Authors of accepted papers are required to submit the final,
camera-ready versions of their papers (in LNCS format, see authors
instructions at,
including an electronic version as specified in the authors'
