SRDS 2023 call for papers

Marrakesh, Morocco
Sep 24-29, 2023

The 42nd International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS 2023) is a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in distributed systems design, development and evaluation, with an emphasis on reliability, availability, safety, dependability, security, verification, and real-time aspects.

We welcome the following types of submissions:

- research papers, describing original research as well as design, development and experimental results of distributed 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 support research, development and operation of reliable distributed systems;

Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category.


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, micro-services, transactions, and blockchains.

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

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

All deadlines are at 23:59 AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time.

Abstract Submission: April 15th, 2023 (recommended)
Full Paper Submission: April 22th, 2023
Rebuttal: June 10th to June 12th, 2023
Notification to Authors: June 17th, 2023
Camera-Ready and author registration: July 1st, 2023
Conference dates: September 24-29, 2023


- Papers must be written in English. Research Papers, Practical Experience Reports, and Tool Papers should be no longer than 10 pages, *excluding references* for which there's no page limit, following the IEEE two-column format for conference proceedings. Additional details to substantiate the main claims of the paper, such as proofs, data tables or code snippets, can be included in a clearly marked appendix beyond the page limit, and read at the reviewers discretion. Authors are requested to first register their submissions with a title and abstract, and then submit their manuscripts in PDF format at the HoTCRP page.
Submission site:

- All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to make a good-faith effort to preserve the anonymity of your
submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. It is recognized that, at times, information regarding the identities of authors may become public outside the submission process (e.g., if a pre-print is published as a technical report or on a pre-print server). The PC will ignore this external information. Minimally, please take the following steps when preparing your submission:

- Remove the names and affiliations of authors from the title page.
- Remove acknowledgment of identifying names and funding sources.
- Use care in referring to related work, particularly your own. Do not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the context. Instead, reference your past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece of related work by another author.

- Submissions that do not conform to the above anonymization and formatting guidelines (e.g., are too long, use fonts or line spacing smaller than what is indicated) or are unoriginal, previously published, or are under submission to multiple venues concurrently, will be desk rejected without review.

- If you have any question regarding paper submission, please do not hesitate to contact the conference PC Chairs: Anne-Marie Kermarrec, Dan Kim, Alexandre Maurer.
SRDS 2023 will include an Artifact Evaluation (AE) process, allowing artifacts (software, data sets, ...) used in research to be validated and actively disseminated together with accepted papers. Submitting artifacts for evaluation is optional but strongly encouraged, as public and reusable artifacts foster replication, reproduction, and extension of research results. Artifact submission will be available for accepted papers shortly after notification, so authors should be prepared in advance.


All accepted papers SRDS will compete for the "Prof. C. V. Ramamoorthy Best Paper Award". The SRDS Best Paper is named after Prof. Chittoor V. Ramamoorthy, who was instrumental in the 80’s for the success of SRDS, many of his former students have also significantly contributed to the conference.
