The selection of regular presentations will be based on peer-review by regular program committee members. The selection of brief announcements may also be based on peer-reviews by junior program committee members. Regular papers and brief announcements will be included in the conference proceedings. Regular papers receive up to 10 double column ACM proceedings style pages, brief announcements receive up to 2 double column ACM proceedings style pages.
Following a long-standing PODC tradition, a best student paper award 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. The program committee may decline to make the award or may split it.
