33rd International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems, IEEE SRDS 2014
October 6 - 9, 2014.  Nara, Japan


The Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems is a forum for researchers and
practitioners interested in distributed systems design, development and
evaluation, particularly with emphasis on reliability, availability, safety,
security, trust and real-time. We welcome original research papers as 
well as
practical experience reports that deal with design, development and 
results of operational systems.


Abstract submission:   April 7, 2014 (23:00 ETC)
Full paper submission:   April 13, 2014 (23:00 ETC; NO EXTENSIONS)
Authors notification:   June 27, 2014
Camera-ready:   July 20, 2014
Conference:   October 6-9, 2014


Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Autonomic, pervasive and ubiquitous computing
* Cloud computing and virtualization: X-as-a-Service
* Dependability of distributed databases and transaction processing
* Dependability of distributed multimedia systems
* Dependable communication networks, QoS control and assessment
* Dependable cooperative mobile systems
     (ad hoc networks, sensor networks, robot networks, ...)
* Distributed algorithms
* Distributed objects and middleware systems
* Experimental or analytical evaluations of dependable distributed systems
* Fault-tolerance, reliability, availability in distributed systems
* Formal methods and foundations for dependable distributed computing
* High-assurance and safety-critical distributed system design and 
* Internet-based systems and applications
* Parallel and distributed operating systems
* Privacy-assuring large scale data management systems
* Resilience of distributed infrastructures
     (intelligent transport, smart grids, vehicular networks, ...)
* Secure and trusted distributed systems


The symposium will highlight the best paper. All papers accepted for
presentation at the symposium will be evaluated by the Best Paper Award
Co-Chairs for the award.


Please see the submission page for information. Accepted papers will 
appear in
the symposium proceedings, which will be published by the IEEE Computer 
IMPORTANT: There will be no deadline extension!


Workshops will be held in conjunction with SRDS 2014 on October 6, 2014.
