The Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems is a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in distributed systems 
design, development and evaluation, 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 experimental
results of operational systems.

Topics of Interest

The major areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

* Cloud computing and virtualization
* Autonomic, pervasive, and ubiquitous computing
* Secure and trusted storage systems
* Secure and dependable web services
* High-confidence and Safety-critical systems  
* Parallel and distributed operating systems
* Distributed objects and middleware systems
* Fault-tolerant and secure sensor networks
* Event-based  processing and peer-to-peer infrastructures
* Distributed databases and transaction processing
* Distributed measurement, monitoring, and predictions
* Wireless ad hoc networks
* Electronic commerce and enabling technologies
* Formal methods and foundations for dependable distributed computing
* Analytical or experimental evaluations of dependable distributed systems
* Internet-based systems and applications
* Scalable systems design 
* QoS control and assessment
* Trust and scalable system design in social networks
* Social media and privacy issues

Submission Guidelines

Papers must be written in English. Regular Papers describing original research as well as design, development and experimental 
results of operational systems, and Practical Experience Reports describing on-going industrial projects, prototype systems and 
exploratory or emerging applications, should be no longer than 10 pages, following the IEEE two-column format for conference 
proceedings, in font size no smaller than 10 points, and must fit properly on US "Letter"-sized paper (8.5 x 11 inches). All
papers that deviate from these specifications will be rejected automatically. Authors are requested to first register their 
submissions and submit their manuscripts in PDF format. Submission details can be found at http://web.mst.edu/~cswebdb/srds2012/.
Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings, which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society.

Best Paper Award

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


Workshops will be held in conjunction with SRDS 2012 on 8th/11th October, 2012.
