Important, much earlier than usual, dates

On going to PODC '99 ...

Major changes from previous PODCs

PODC '99 will be part of the ACM Federated Computing Research Conference (FCRC '99). As a result, the dates for PODC '99 are quite different from the dates for previous PODCs.

Brief announcements will be presented in poster sessions. Full versions of brief announcement papers are not mandatory.

This year PODC especially encourages papers addressing distributed computing issues regarding Mobile Computing and the Internet.

Best student paper award

A prize will be given to the best student paper. A paper is eligible if at least one of its authors is a full-time student at the time of submission. This must be indicated in the cover letter. The program committee may decline to make the award or split it.
