• Concurrency, synchronization, and transactional memory

• Distributed operating systems, middleware, database systems

• Self-stabilizing, self-organizing, and autonomic systems

• Wireless, mobile, sensor and ad-hoc networks

• Fault tolerance, reliability, availability

• Game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing

• Specification, verification, and testing: tools, methodologies

• Networks: protocols, architectures, services, applications

• Multiprocessor and multicore architectures and algorithms

• System on chip and network on chip architectures

• Security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols

• Distributed computing issues in the Internet and the Web

• Cloud and peer-to-peer computing

• Software defined networks and network functions virtualization

• Mobile agents and autonomous robots

Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines
on the conference web page (to be announced). Submissions
must be in English, in .pdf format, and begin with a cover page
(not a cover letter) including: (1) title, (2) authors' names and affiliations,
(3) contact author's email address, and telephone number,
(4) a short abstract of the paper, (5) indication of whether this is
a regular paper or a brief announcement, and (6) indication of whether the
paper is eligible for best student paper award.

A submission for a regular presentation must report on original research
that has not previously appeared, and has not been concurrently submitted
to a journal or conference with published proceedings. Any overlap with a
published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated. A regular
submission must not exceed 10 single-column pages using at least 11 point
font on letter paper (excluding cover page and references). Authors are
expected to include all the ideas necessary for an expert to verify the central
claims in the paper. If necessary, the details may appear in a clearly marked
appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the program committee.

A brief announcement submission must not exceed 3 pages in the same format.
It is permissible for the material in brief announcements to be published in
other conferences.

Submissions not conforming to these rules and papers outside of the scope of
the conference will be rejected without consideration.

If requested by the authors on the cover page, a regular submission that is not
selected for a regular presentation can be considered for the brief announcement
format. Such a request will not affect consideration of the paper for a regular presentation.

The proceedings will be published as a volume in the ARCoSS Springer Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series. Accepted papers must be submitted in the
LNCS format. Participants will receive a copy of the final proceedings.

Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper. To be eligible
for the best student paper award at least one of the paper authors must be a
full-time student at the time of submission.

Workshops and tutorials:
Proposals for satellite workshops and tutorials are welcome.
