                               Call For Papers

                                 - SSS 2014 -

                       16th International Symposium on
          Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems

                   Sept 29 - Oct 1, 2014, Paderborn, Germany

SSS is an international forum for researchers and practitioners in the
design and development of distributed systems with self-* properties such as
self- stabilizing, self-configuring, self-organizing, self-managing,
self-repairing, self-healing, self-optimizing, self-adaptive, and
self-protecting. Research in distributed systems is now at a crucial point
in its evolution, marked by the importance of dynamic systems such as
peer-to-peer networks, large-scale wireless sensor networks, mobile ad hoc
networks, robotic networks, opportunistic networks etc. Moreover, 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. We particularly encourage the submissions spanning these areas of

The conference provides a wide spectrum of topics, covered in the following
* Self-stabilization
* Fault-tolerant and Dependable Systems
* Formal Methods, Safety, and Security
* Ad-hoc, Sensor and Mobile Networks, Cyberphysical Systems
* Cloud Computing, P2P, Self-organizing and Autonomous Systems

* Abstract Submission: April 16, 2014 (UTC-12)
* Paper Submission: April 21, 2014 (UTC-12)
* Notification: June 9, 2014
* Camera Ready Submission: July 4, 2014

  Papers must be prepared using the LNCS style and be electronically
submitted in PDF format using EasyChair
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sss2014). Two types of papers
can be submitted: Regular Papers and Brief Announcements. 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, a
regular submission that is not selected for a regular presentation will also
be considered for a brief announcement. This request must be clearly
indicated in the first page of the paper. 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
submission may not be concurrently submitted to another conference,
workshop, or journal.

  The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer Verlag
Lecture  Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.Selected papers will be
published in the Journal of Self-Computing

  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. This must be clearly indicated in the first page of the paper.

SSS 2014 will take place in Paderborn, Germany.
