PODC does not allow anonymous submissions. Submissions are considered confidential, and are only distributed for the purposes of evaluating whether they are appropriate for presentation at PODC. It is expected that at least one of the authors of each accepted paper will attend the conference and present the paper.
All submissions must be in Postscript or PDF format.
Submissions must have a single-column format using font size 11 and double-spacing. A submission must be no longer than 20 pages on letter-size paper, including everything (cover page, bibliography, etc.) except appendices. Any paper not strictly conforming with these limits will be rejected outright.

In addition, please indicate in boldface whether the paper is eligible for the best student paper award (see details below).
All submissions must report on original research.
Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix, which may go beyond the 20 page limit and will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Submitted papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or conference with published proceedings and must not be concurrently submitted to any other conference. Any partial overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.
Please see the Call for Posters.
A prize will be given to the best student regular presentation. A paper is eligible if at least one author is a full-time student at the time of submission, and the contribution of the student is significant. This must be noted on the cover page. The program committee may decline to make the award or may split it.
