14th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security

of Distributed Systems


October 1-4, 2012

Toronto, Canada




The SSS symposium is a prestigious international forum for researchers and

practitioners in the design and development of fault-tolerant distributed

systems with self-* properties, such as self-stabilizing, self-configuring,

self-organizing, self-managing, self-repairing, self-healing,

self-adaptive, and self-protecting systems. Research in distributed systems
is now

at a crucial point in its evolution, marked by the importance of dynamic

systems such as cloud networks, social networks, peer-to-peer networks,

wireless sensor networks, mobile ad hoc networks, etc., and many new
applications such

as grid and web services, banking and e-commerce, e-health and robotics,

aerospace and avionics, automotive, industrial process control, etc. have

joined the traditional applications of distributed systems.


The conference provides a wide spectrum of topics, covered in the following


* Self-Stabilization

* Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks

* Fault-Tolerance and Dependable Systems

* Safety and Security

* Cloud Computing

* Formal Methods

* Social Networks

* Peer-to-Peer, Self-Organizing and Autonomic Systems






* Abstract Submission: April 16, 2012

* Paper Submission: April 23, 2012

* Notification: June 6, 2012






Papers must be submitted in PDF format and be prepared using the LNCS style.

Detailed instructions for submitting papers will be available later.

Two types of papers can be submitted: Regular Papers and Brief

Submissions for regular papers should be no longer than 15 pages

(including the title, authors, abstract, figures, and references) in LNCS

style; a submission may have an appendix of at most two pages beyond the

15 page limit. Brief announcements are restricted to two pages using the

LNCS style, with no appendix. Submissions deviating from these guidelines

will be rejected without consideration of their merits.

If requested by the authors on the submission system, a regular submission

that is not selected for a regular presentation will also be considered for

a brief announcement. Such a request will not affect consideration of the

paper for a regular paper.

A paper submitted at this forum is expected to be original research not

previously published. A contribution can be submitted to one track only and

may not be concurrently submitted to another conference, workshop, or






The proceedings of the conference will be published in the

Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

A special journal issue for selected SSS 2012 papers is under negotiation;

please see the website for more information.






The program committee will select two papers for best paper and best

student paper awards. A paper is eligible for the best student paper

award if at least one of its authors is a full-time student at the time of

submission, and if the student made a major contribution to the paper.

This must be indicated by marking an appropriate box in

the submission system.
