We are soliciting research contributions on the design, specification, implementation, application and theory of distributed systems. We are continuing to broaden the conference by actively seeking papers reporting on the implementation, analysis, evaluation, and deployment of real systems. We will favor work that explores new territory or reflects on experience with practical applications of the community's knowledge. Submissions on any topic in the intersection of security and distributed computing are solicited for the Security in Distributed Computing Special Track.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Electronic submissions are encouraged:
PODC does not allow anonymous submissions. The PODC program committee treats submissions as confidential, and their content and identity are not publicly revealed.
Conference presentations will have two formats:
A submission for the REGULAR PRESENTATION format should be no longer than 4,500 words (10 pages on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font). Additional necessary details may be included in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee.
A submission for the BRIEF ANNOUNCEMENT format should be no longer than 3 pages on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font. Authors of accepted brief announcements will have the option of placing a link to a full version of their work on the conference web site.
In all cases, the page limit does include the title and abstract (which need not appear on a separate page) and bibliography (which may be set in smaller type).
If requested by the authors, a submission that is not selected for a regular presentation will also be considered for the brief announcement format. Such a request will not affect consideration of the paper for a regular presentation.
Submissions deviating significantly from these guidelines will be rejected without consideration of their merits. Late papers will not be read or considered.
A prize will be given to the best student paper. A paper is eligible if at least one author is a full-time student at the time of submission. This must be noted on the cover page. The program committee may decline to make the award or split it.
