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 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
Security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols
Distributed computing issues in the Internet and the Web
Cloud computing

Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines
on the conference web page (to be announced). Every submission
must be in English, in .ps or .pdf format, and begin with a cover page
(not a cover letter) including: (1) title,  (2) authors’ names and
(3) contact author’s postal and email address, and telephone number,
(4) one paragraph abstract of the paper, (5) indication of whether this is
a regular paper or a brief announcement, (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
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
claims in the paper.  If necessary, the details may appear in a clearly
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
selected for a regular presentation can be considered for the brief
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.
