Scope

The ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing is an international forum on the theory, design, analysis, implementation and application of distributed systems and networks. We solicit papers in all areas of distributed computing. Papers from all viewpoints, including theory, practice, and experimentation, are welcome. The goal of the conference is to improve understanding of the principles underlying distributed computing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • biological distributed algorithms and systems
  • blockchain protocols
  • coding and reliable communication
  • communication networks
  • concurrency, synchronization, and persistence
  • design and analysis of distributed algorithms
  • distributed and cloud storage
  • distributed and concurrent data structures
  • distributed computation for large-scale data
  • distributed graph algorithms
  • distributed machine learning algorithms
  • distributed operating systems, middleware, databases
  • distributed resource management and scheduling
  • fault-tolerance, reliability, self-organization, and self-stabilization
  • game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing
  • high-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
  • internet applications
  • languages, verification, and formal methods for distributed systems
  • lower bounds and impossibility results for distributed computing
  • mobile computing and autonomous agents
  • multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
  • peer-to-peer systems, overlay networks, and social networks
  • population protocols
  • quantum and optics based distributed algorithms
  • replication and consistency
  • security and cryptography in distributed computing
  • specifications and semantics
  • system-on-chip and network-on-chip architectures
  • transactional memory
  • wireless, sensor, mesh, and ad hoc networks
