PODC 2013




PODC solicits papers in all areas of distributed computing. Papers from all viewpoints, including theory, practice, and experimentation, are welcome. The common goal of the conference is to improve understanding of the principles underlying distributed computing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • distributed algorithms and their complexity
  • concurrent programming, synchronization, shared and transactional memory
  • multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
  • fault tolerance, reliability, availability
  • self-stabilizing, self-organizing, and autonomic systems
  • communication networks: protocols, architectures, services, applications
  • sensor, mobile, ad-hoc, peer-to-peer networks
  • cryptographic and security protocols and system security
  • semantics, models, verification, debugging, and tool support
  • Internet applications, social networks, recommendation systems
  • distributed operating systems, databases and programming languages
  • game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing
  • cluster, cloud and grid computing
