[DMANET] SSS 2015 - Submission Deadline Extended to April 29, 2015 (UTC-12)‏

The submission deadline for SSS 2015 has been moved to April 29, 2015.


Call for Papers
17th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security of
Distributed Systems (SSS 2015) Edmonton, Alberta, Canada 18-21 August 2015 Proceedings to be published as a Springer LNCS Volume.
The Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems
is an international forum for researchers and practitioners working on the
design and development of distributed systems that guarantee specific
desired properties despite adversity, or that are able to restore the
desired properties following adversarial perturbations in the computing
medium building on the principles of self-stabilization. Research in
distributed computing and distributed systems continues its vibrant
development, marked by the importance of dynamic systems, such as
peer-to-peer networks, large-scale wireless sensor networks, mobile ad hoc
networks, mobile agent computing, opportunistic networks etc. Moreover, new
applications such as grid and web services, banking and e-commerce,
e-voting, e-health and robotics, aerospace and avionics, automotive,
industrial process control, have joined the expanded landscape of
distributed systems. It is becoming increasingly important to endow all
such systems with built-in means for self-management, self-protection, and
self-repair. The symposium encourages the submission of original
contributions spanning fundamental research and practical applications
within its scope, covered by the five symposium tracks: +
Self-stabilization Track Track Chair: Joffroy Beauquier, U. Paris-Sud,

Paper Submission Instructions Papers must be prepared using the LNCS style
and be electronically submitted to a specific track in PDF format using
EasyChair. Contributions can be submitted as either Regular Papers or Brief
Announcements. Submissions for regular papers must be no longer than 15
pages (including the title, authors, abstract, figures, and references) and
may have an additional appendix to be read at the discretion of the Program
Committee. Brief announcements are restricted to two pages with no
appendix. Submissions deviating from these guidelines will be rejected
without consideration of their merits. If requested by the authors, a
regular submission that is not selected for a regular presentation will
also be considered for a brief announcement. This request must be clearly
indicated in the first page of the paper. Such a request will not affect
consideration of the paper as a regular paper. A paper submitted to SSS
2015 must be an original contribution not previously published as a regular
paper (results previously published as a brief announcement may be
submitted as a regular paper to SSS 2015). No submission may be
concurrently submitted to another conference, workshop, or journal.
EasyChair submission URL:
Best Paper & Best Student Paper Awards The program committee will select
two papers for best paper and best student paper awards. A paper is
eligible for the best student paper award if at least one of its authors is
a full-time student at the time of submission. This must be clearly
indicated in the first page of the paper.
