# SRDS 2019: 38th IEEE International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems #

Lyon, France, October 1-4, 2019


# Call for Papers #

The 38th IEEE International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS
2019) is a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in distributed
systems design, development and evaluation, with emphasis on reliability,
availability, safety, dependability, security, and real-time. We welcome
Research Papers describing original research as well as design, development and
experimental results of operational systems, Practical Experience Reports
describing ongoing industrial projects, prototype systems and exploratory or
emerging applications, and Tool Papers describing architecture, implementation
and usage of substantive tools to aid the research and practice of reliable
distributed systems. Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each

## Topics of Interest ##

The major areas of interest include the following topics:

* Dependability, security and privacy of distributed systems including, but not
  limited to, cloud, high-performance, fog, and edge computing; distributed data
  storage and processing; distributed machine learning and AI; safety-critical
  distributed systems; Internet of Things, vehicular, robotic, cyber-physical
  and mobile systems.

* Techniques and algorithms advancing the state-of-the-art in fault tolerance,
  fault recovery, robustness, self-stabilization, self-healing, scalability, and
  real-time for distributed systems. These include, but are not limited to,
  coordination, replication, failure prediction and detection, microservices,
  transactions, and blockchains.

* Methods and tools for the design, implementation, verification, validation,
  and operation of dependable and secure distributed applications, middleware,
  operating systems and hardware.

* Analytical, simulative and experimental assessment of dependable and secure
  distributed systems, in particular, when in real settings or with real data
  and in large scale and complex environments.

## Important Dates ##

* Abstract Submission: April 19, 2019
* Full Paper Submission: April 26, 2019
* Notification to Authors: June 21, 2019
* Camera-Ready: July 12, 2019
* SRDS 2019: October 1-4, 2019

## Submission ##

Papers must be written in English. Research Papers, Practical Experience
Reports, and Tool Papers should be no longer than 10 pages, following the IEEE
two-column format for conference proceedings. All necessary details to
substantiate the main claims of the paper should be included in a clearly marked
appendix. Authors are requested to first register their submissions and then
submit their manuscripts in PDF format at the Easychair page at

## Best Paper Awards ##

The symposium will highlight the best paper. As a tribute to the memory of Prof.
Chittoor V. Ramamoorthy, the SRDS Best Paper Award is named "Prof. C. V.
Ramamoorthy Best Paper Award". He was instrumental for IEEE SRDS from the 80's
and many of his students have contributed to this conference. All papers
accepted for presentation at the symposium will be evaluated for the Best Paper

## General Chairs ##
