Call For Papers

OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge on distributed computing and distributed computer systems. All aspects of distributed systems are within the scope of OPODIS, including theory, specification, design, performance, and system building.

OPODIS is traditionally strong in the theoretical aspects of distributed systems; furthermore, OPODIS is expanding its coverage to include the overlap between theoretical solutions and practical implementations, as well as experimentation and quantitative assessments.

A quality OPODIS paper will typically consider a significant problem in distributed computing, study an original solution, and evaluate it by formal, analytical, simulation, or experimental means. Positive, negative, and reproduction results that advance the state of the art are equally welcome. Topics covered by OPODIS include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Cloud computing
• Communication and synchronization protocols
• Dependable computing: theory and practice
• Distributed algorithms: shared memory and message passing
• Distributed database systems
• Distributed event processing
• Distributed operating systems
• Dynamic and time-varying networks
• Embedded distributed systems
• Fault-tolerance, reliability, availability
• Grid and cluster computing
• Large-scale systems
• Mobile agents and autonomous robots
• Peer-to-peer systems, overlay networks
• Performance: availability, latency, throughput, balance, communication, energy, etc.
• Programming languages, specification and verification applied to distributed systems
• Security and privacy
• Self-* solutions for distributed systems
• Sensor networks
• Social networks: modeling, analysis, and synthesis
• Wireless and mobile computing

Submission and reviewing

The conference language is English. Submission is electronic, per the instructions at On the first page, include the title of the paper, author(s) names and affiliation, an abstract, email, and a list of keywords. Submissions shall conform strictly to the LNCS format (instructions at, and must not exceed 15 pages, including figures, tables and references. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix, which will be read, or not, at the discretion of the reviewers.

The Programme Co-Chairs reserve the right to refuse, out of hand, papers that are out of scope, that are of clearly inferior quality, or that violate the submission guidelines. The remaining papers will undergo a thorough reviewing process. Each paper will be peer-reviewed in depth by at least three Programme Committee members. The Programme Committee will select contributions to be presented at the conference and published in the proceedings according to the criteria of originality, clarity, and completeness.

Important dates:

Abstract registration: 23 July 2014.
Submission deadline: 30 July 2014. Firm deadline, no extensions.
Acceptance notification: 2 October 2014
Camera-ready due: 4 November 2014
Conference: 3 days in week of 15-19 December 2014


The proceedings volume will be published in the Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. It is required that each accepted paper be presented at the conference by one of its authors.
