18th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security of
Distributed Systems (SSS)

Lyon, France, November 7-10, 2016


   ***  Abstract Submission: Extended from July 17 to July 24
   ***  Paper Submission: Extended from July 24 to July 31

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 
its scope, covered by the three symposium tracks.

Paper Submission Instructions
Contributions can be submitted as either

Regular papers:
Submissions for regular papers must be no longer than 15 pages (including
the title, authors, abstract, figures, and references) LNCS and may have
an additional appendix to be read at the discretion of the Program 

Short papers:
Submissions for short papers must be no longer than 6 pages and may present
novel contributions that are not necessarily thoroughly worked out.
Accepted short papers will be presented in special short talk (10 minutes)
and poster sessions.

New ideas papers:
Submissions for new idea papers must be no longer than 2 pages and may
present completely new ideas or emerging techniques and applications.

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 short or
new idea paper. 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 2016 must be an original 
not previously published as a regular paper (results previously published as
a short paper may be submitted as a regular paper to SSS 2016). No 
may be concurrently submitted to another conference, workshop, or journal.

Journal Special Issue
A selection of accepted regular papers will be invited to appear in a
special issue of the Springer Theory of Computing Systems (ToCS).

Best Paper&  Best Student Paper Awards
The program committee will select two papers for the best paper and best
student paper awards. A paper is eligible for the best student paper
award if at least one of the authors of the paper is a full-­time student
at the time of submission. This must be clearly indicated in the first
page of the paper. Best paper awards prizes are generously sponsored by
