PODC solicits papers in all areas of distributed computing. Papers from all viewpoints, including theory, practice, and experimentation, are welcome. The common 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 subjects:
- distributed algorithms: design, analysis, and complexity
- communication networks: algorithms, architectures, services, protocols, applications
- multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
- shared and transactional memory, synchronization protocols, concurrent programming
- fault-tolerance, reliability, availability, self-organization, self-stabilization
- codes and reliable communication
- Internet applications, social networks, recommendation systems
- dynamic, adaptive and machine learning based distributed algorithms
- distributed operating systems, middleware platforms, databases
- game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing
- distributed mechanisms design
- peer-to-peer systems, overlay networks, distributed data management
- high-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
- wireless networks, mobile computing, autonomous agents and robots
- context-aware distributed systems
- security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols
- distributed cryptocurrencies and blockchain protocols
- quantum and optics based distributed algorithms
- biological distributed algorithms
- sensor, mesh, and ad hoc networks
- specification, semantics, verification of concurrent systems
