The 20th International Conference on Principles of Distributed Systems
13-16 December 2016,
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.
OPODIS solicits papers in all aspects of distributed systems, including theory, specification, design, performance, and system building. With a strong background in the theory of distributed systems, OPODIS has recently expanded its scope to cover the whole range between the theoretical aspects and practical implementations of distributed systems.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Design and analysis of distributed algorithms
- Synchronization, concurrent algorithms, shared and transactional memory
- Design and analysis of concurrent and distributed data structures
- Communication networks (protocols, architectures, services, applications)
- High-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
- Mesh and ad-hoc networks (wireless, mobile, sensor), location and context-aware systems
- Mobile agents, robots, and rendezvous
- Internet applications, social systems, peer-to-peer and overlay networks
- Distributed operating systems, middleware, and distributed database systems
- Programming languages, formal methods, specification and verification applied to distributed systems
- Embedded and energy-efficient distributed systems
- Distributed event processing
- Distributed storage and file systems, large-scale systems, and big data analytics
- Dependable distributed algorithms and systems
- Self-stabilization, self-organization, autonomy
- Security and privacy, cryptographic protocols
- Game-theory and economical aspects of distributed computing
- Randomization in distributed computing
- Biological distributed algorithms
This edition of the OPODIS conference will take place in Madrid. Madrid, the capital of Spain, is a cosmopolitan city that combines the most modern infrastructures and the status as an economic, financial, administrative and service centre, with a large cultural and artistic heritage, a legacy of centuries of exciting history.
Papers are to be submitted electronically through Easychair at the following link https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=opodis2016. Submissions must be in English in pdf format and they must be prepared using the LaTeX style templates for LIPIcs and choosing the A4 paper option. A submission must not exceed 16 pages, including the cover page, figures, tables and references. The cover page should include the title of the paper, the authors’ names, affiliations and e-mails, an abstract, information about the contact author, and a list of keywords.
Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix or as supplementary material which will be read at the discretion of the reviewers. Submissions are expected to be intelligible and complete without such additional details.
A submission must report on original research that has not previously appeared in a journal or conference with published proceedings. It should not be concurrently submitted to such a journal or conference. Any overlap with a published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated. The Program Chairs reserve the right to reject submissions that are out of scope, or of clearly inferior quality, or that violate the submission guidelines. Each of the remaining papers will undergo a thorough reviewing process.
