ApPLIED: Workshop on Advanced tools, programming languages, and PLatforms
for Implementing and Evaluating algorithms for Distributed systems -- held
in conjunction with PODC 2018.

Full Papers Submission: May 13, 2018.

Acceptance Notification: June 6, 2018.

Camera Ready version: June 18, 2018.

Workshop day: July 27, 2018, Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham,
United Kingdom, July 27th, 2018.


Designers of advanced systems wishing to implement and evaluate distributed
algorithms in practical settings are often faced with challenging questions
regarding the transformation from design to a working prototype. For
example, what language should they use? What communication library or tool
should use to enable the communication between processes? Over which
platform should the algorithm be implemented and evaluated? What tradeoffs
must be taken into consideration, i.e., choose a low-cost (or free)
publically available setting with moderate maintenance or an expensive,
developer-friendly one?

Context is also very important. Some design assumptions might not be
feasible nor affordable to be implemented in practice, or certain
considerations might be irrelevant. In other words, some important issues
in theory, might not be important in practice whereas some practical
obstacles deserve more attention and analysis.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together designers and
practitioners of distributed systems from both academia and industry to
share their point of views and experiences. We solicit submissions
describing research results and/or position papers relevant to the topic of
interest to ApPLIED. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* The process of designing an algorithm to developing a prototype
implementation suitable for running on working systems.

* Success stories in which the evaluation of (perhaps known) distributed
algorithms resulted in further (analytical) insights.

* Position papers that consider new directions, opinions and learned

Two formats will be considered:

* A regular paper submission must report on original research that has not
been previously or concurrently published; concurrent submissions to
journals or conferences are not permitted. A regular submission must not
exceed 6 pages excluding cover page and references. Additional necessary
details may be included in an appendix which will be read at the discretion
of the program committee. However, the paper must be self-contained without
the appendices. Regular papers will have 30 minutes for an oral
presentation at the workshop.

* Short research statements aim at fostering discussion and collaboration.
Research statements may summarize research published elsewhere or outline
new emerging ideas. These submissions must not exceed 3 pages excluding
cover page and references. The material in these short research statements
may be published in other conferences. Short research statements will have
15 minutes for an oral presentation at the workshop.

Submissions not conforming to these rules and papers outside of the scope
of the conference will be rejected without consideration.

The authors are responsible to have at least one of the authors registered
to the workshop and presenting their work.


Papers are to be submitted electronically through EasyChair:


Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines on the
workshop web page. Submission must be in English, in pdf format, and in ACM
proceedings style (ACM SIG). Each paper must begin with a cover page
containing: (1) title, (2) author names and affiliations, (3) contact
author's email, (4) abstract, and (5) indication of whether the paper
should be considered as an article of original research, or short research


The final version of the accepted papers will appear on the workshop's
website and ACM digital library. These papers will be available to the
participants in electronic format during the workshop.
