17th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety,
and Security of Distributed Systems (SSS 2015)

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
18-21 August 2015

Proceedings to be published as a Springer LNCS Volume.


The Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems is
an international forum for researchers and practitioners working on the design
and development of distributed systems that guarantee specific desired
properties despite adversity, or that are able to restore the desired
properties following adversarial perturbations in the computing medium building
on the principles of self-stabilization.

Research in distributed computing and distributed systems continues its vibrant
development, marked by the importance of dynamic systems, such as peer-to-peer
networks, large-scale wireless sensor networks, mobile ad hoc networks, mobile
agent computing, opportunistic networks etc. Moreover, new applications such as
grid and web services, banking and e-commerce, e-voting, e-health and robotics,
aerospace and avionics, automotive, industrial process control, have joined the
expanded landscape of distributed systems. It is becoming increasingly
important to endow all such systems with built-in means for self-management,
self-protection, and self-repair.

The symposium encourages the submission of original contributions spanning
fundamental research and practical applications within its scope, covered by
the five symposium tracks:

+ Self-stabilization Track
Track Chair: Joffroy Beauquier, U. Paris-Sud, France
+ Fault-tolerance and Dependability Track
Track Chair: Nitin Vaidya, UIUC, USA
+ Ad-hoc and Sensor Networks, Mobile Agents Track
Track Chair: Paola Flocchini, U. of Ottawa, Canada
+ System Security in Distributed Computing Track
Track Chair: Alex Russell, U. of Connecticut, USA
+ Formal Methods and Distributed Algorithms Track
Track Chair: Helmut Veith, Vienna U. of Technology, Austria


* The technical program of SSS 2015 (Aug. 19 - Aug. 21) will be *
* preceded by a one day Summer School on DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING AND *
* CRYPTOGRAPHY (Aug. 18), organized by Shlomi Dolev (Ben-Gurion *
* University, Israel). *

Paper Submission Instructions

Papers must be prepared using the LNCS style and be electronically submitted
to a specific track in PDF format using EasyChair. Contributions can be
submitted as either Regular Papers or Brief Announcements. Submissions for
regular papers must be no longer than 15 pages (including the title, authors,
abstract, figures, and references) and may have an additional appendix to be
read at the discretion of the Program Committee. Brief announcements are
restricted to two pages 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 as a regular paper. A paper
submitted to SSS 2015 must be an original contribution not previously published
as a regular paper (results previously published as a brief announcement may be
submitted as a regular paper to SSS 2015). No submission may be concurrently
submitted to another conference, workshop, or journal.

Best Paper & Best Student Paper Awards

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.
