Call For Papers

The 24th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems (SSS 2022) will be held in Clermont-Ferrand, France on November 15-17, 2022.

SSS is an international forum for researchers and practitioners in the design and development of distributed systems with a focus on systems that are able to provide guarantees on their structure, performance, and/or security in the face of an adverse operational environment. The symposium encourages submissions of original contributions on fundamental research and practical applications concerning topics in the three symposium tracks:

Track A. Self-stabilizing Systems: Theory and Practice

- Self-stabilizing systems
- Self-stabilizing protocols and algorithms
- Practically-stabilizing systems
- Variants of self-stabilization
- Topological stabilization
- Autonomic Computing
- Stabilization and self-* properties in hardware, software, and middleware design
- Self-stabilizing software defined infrastructure

Track B. Concurrent and Distributed Computing: Foundations, Fault-tolerance, and Security

- Distributed, concurrent, and fault-tolerant algorithms
- Synchronization protocols
- Shared and transactional memory
- Graph-theoretic concepts for communication networks
- Formal methods, validation, verification, and synthesis
- Social networks
- Game-theory and economical aspects of distributed computing
- Randomization in distributed computing
- High-performance, cluster, cloud and grid computing
- Network security and privacy
- Blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies
- Applied cryptography

Track C. Dynamic, Mobile, and Nature-Inspired Computing

- Self-organization in mobile agents
- Mobile robots
- Mobile sensor networks
- Mobile ad-hoc networks
- Population protocols
- Dynamic networks, time-varying graphs, evolving graphs
- Nature-inspired computing
- Programmable particles, nanoscale robots, biological systems, and related new models


This year, we experiment a new conference model. There will be TWO deadlines. The review process for these two deadlines will not overlap to allow papers rejected during the first review phase to be reworked, corrected, and enhanced before being resubmitted on the second review round, if wished by the authors. Papers may be submitted at only one deadline. Of course, accepted papers of the first review round are definitely accepted and should not be submitted to the second round. In case of resubmission, reviews from the first phase will be transmitted to the reviewers of the second phase.


Paper Submission, first deadline: April 15th, 2022 (11:59 PM AoE)
First Acceptance Notification: May 20th, 2022
Camera-ready copy due: June 1st, 2022

Paper Submission, second deadline: August 15th, 2022 (11:59 PM AoE)
Second Acceptance Notification: September 23th, 2022
Camera-ready copy due: October 1st, 2022


Papers are to be submitted electronically through Easychair:

All submission must conform to the formatting instructions of Springer LNCS series (see Each submission must be an original work written in English, in PDF format.


All submissions must be anonymous. We use a somewhat relaxed implementation of double-blind peer review: you are free to disseminate your work through arXiv and other online repositories and give presentations on your work as usual. However, please make sure you do not mention your own name or affiliation in the submission, and please do not include obvious references in the text that reveal your identity. A reviewer who has not previously seen the paper should be able to read it without accidentally learning the identity of the authors. Please feel free to ask the PC chairs if you have any questions about the double-blind policy of SSS 2022.


There are two types of submission: regular paper and brief announcement.

- A regular submission must not exceed 15 pages (including the title, authors, abstract, figures, and references).
- A brief announcement submission must not exceed 5 pages and should not include any appendix.

Additional necessary details for an expert to verify the main claims of the submission may be included in a clearly marked appendix if extra space is needed.

Any submission deviating from these guidelines will be rejected without consideration of its merits. It is recommended that a regular submission begins with a succinct statement of the problem being addressed, a summary of the main results or conclusions, a brief explanation of their significance, a brief statement of the key ideas, and a comparison with related work, all tailored to a non-specialist. Technical development of the work, directed to the specialist, should follow. Papers outside of the conference scope will be rejected without review. For the second round only, if requested by the authors on the cover page, a regular submission that is not selected for a regular presentation will also be considered for the brief announcement format. This will not affect consideration of the paper for a regular presentation.


Regular papers and brief announcements will be included in the conference proceedings. Conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS conference series.


Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for a special issue of the international journal Theoretical Computer Science (TCS,


Prizes will be given to the best regular paper and best student regular paper. A regular paper is eligible for the best student paper if at least one of its authors is a full-time student at submission time. Authors should clearly indicate whether their submission is eligible to be considered for the best student paper award (e.g., using a \thanks in the title). The PC may decline to confer awards or may split awards.
