Call For Papers

Call for paper: ApPLIED workshop held in conjunction with PODC 2023

ApPLIED: Workshop on Advanced tools, programming languages, and PLatforms for Implementing and Evaluating algorithms for Distributed systems -- held in conjunction with PODC 2023.

Accepted papers will appear on the workshop's website and ACM digital library (as ACM proceedings).


Abstract registration: March 24, 2023 AoE.

Full Papers Submission: April 1, 2023 AoE.

Acceptance Notification: April 21, 2023.

Camera Ready version: April 30, 2023.

Workshop: Orlando, Florida, either on June Monday, June 19, or Friday, June 23, 2023.


Designers of advanced systems wishing to implement and evaluate distributed algorithms in practical settings are often faced with challenging questions regarding the transformation from design to a working prototype.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together designers and practitioners of distributed systems from both academia and industry to share their points of view and experiences. We solicit submissions describing research results and/or position papers relevant to the topic of interest to ApPLIED. The goal of the workshop is to act as a bridge between the traditional PODC community, which has a more analytical focus, and researchers working on more applied approaches and building large-scale distributed systems.

All topics that fall within the scope of distributed computing and systems are of interest. Special emphasis is on new frontiers including, the Cloud environment, e.g., Edge-computing, consensus-related solutions (e.g., distributed ledger technology), cyber-security, machine learning, and novel hybrid systems (e.g., classic/quantum distributed systems). We are also interested in recent advances, e.g., ChatGPT and GitHub Copilot, in the process of designing distributed algorithms as well as implementing prototypes suitable for running on working systems. Moreover, we welcome success stories in which the evaluation of (perhaps known) distributed algorithms resulted in further (analytical) insights.

Two formats will be considered:

* A regular paper submission must report on original research that has not been previously or concurrently published; concurrent submissions to journals or conferences are not permitted. A regular submission must not exceed 8 pages excluding up to two pages of references. Additional necessary details may be included in a clearly marked appendix which will be read at the discretion of the program committee. However, the paper must be self-contained without the appendices. Regular papers will have 30 minutes for an oral presentation at the workshop. Submissions that were not accepted as regular papers will be considered as short research statements.

* Short research statements aim at fostering discussion and collaboration. Research statements may summarize research published elsewhere or outline new emerging ideas. These submissions must not exceed 4 pages excluding up to one page of references. The material in these short research statements may be published at other conferences. Short research statements will have 15 minutes for an oral presentation at the workshop.

Submissions not conforming to these rules and papers outside of the scope of the conference will be rejected without consideration.

The authors are responsible to have at least one of the authors registered for the workshop and present their work.


Papers are to be submitted electronically through HotCRP:

Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines on the workshop web page. Submission must be in English and in .PDF format. Submissions must be prepared in LaTeX and use the official ACM Master article template acmart.cls, version of 1.80 or greater, using the following documentclass instruction:


The template is available at Each paper must begin with a cover page containing: (1) a title, (2) author names and affiliations, (3) contact author's email, (4) an abstract, and (5) an indication of whether the paper should be considered as an article of original research or short research statement.


The final version of the accepted papers will appear on the workshop's website and ACM digital library. These papers will be available to the participants in electronic format during the workshop.
