The 37th Annual ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC 2018) invites proposals for half-day and full-day workshops that are related to the current scope of the conference or are new emerging research fields complementing or extending it, including but not restricted to:

  • 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
  • nanonetworks
  • biological distributed algorithms
  • sensor, mesh, and ad hoc networks
  • specification, semantics, verification of concurrent systems

Workshops will be held in conjunction with PODC on Monday, July 23, 2018 and on Friday, July 27, 2018. Interested members of the community are invited to send proposals for workshops by email to the conference General Chair:

Calvin Newport <cnewport@cs.georgetown.edu>

A workshop proposal should include a description of the subject matter it would cover, the proposed format (e.g., invited speakers, peer-reviewed papers with a proceedings, etc.), and plans for recruiting attendees.

We will be accepting proposals throughout the month of January and will consider them as they arrive. We cannot guarantee to give consideration to proposals arriving after January as we will begin the process of locking in the schedule soon after that point.
