Paper Submission : May 10, 2016 (AoE)
Notification : July 7, 2016
Camera-Ready Submission : July 20, 2016
Conference : September 26--29, 2016


Original contributions to theory, design, implementation, modeling,
analysis, or application of distributed systems and networks are
solicited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Distributed algorithms; correctness and complexity
- Concurrency, synchronization, and transactional memory
- Distributed operating systems, middleware, database systems
- Self-stabilizing, self-organizing, and autonomous 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 networking and network functions virtualization
- Mobile agents and autonomous robots


Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines on
the conference web page. 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,
(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 the 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 2 pages in the
same format. The material in brief announcements can 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 announcements track. 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. Camera-ready versions of
accepted papers must be submitted in the LNCS format. Accepted papers
must be presented by one of the paper's authors, at the conference site,
and according to the final schedule. Any paper accepted into the
technical program but not presented on-site will be withdrawn from the
official proceedings archived on Springer.


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, and the
student(s) must have made a significant contribution to the paper.
