Call For Papers

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 applications.

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 ( 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.
