35th International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems, SRDS 2016
September 26-29, 2016, Budapest, Hungary

The Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems is a forum for researchers
and practitioners interested in distributed systems design, development
and evaluation, particularly with emphasis on reliability, availability,
safety, security, trust and real-time. We welcome original Research
Papers as well as Practical Experience Reports.


Abstract submission: April 14, 2016
Paper submission : April 21, 2016
Author notification: June 20, 2016
Camera-ready paper: July 22, 2016
Conference: September 26-29, 2016


The major areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Autonomic, pervasive and ubiquitous computing
* Cloud computing and virtualization: X-as-a-Service
* Dependability benchmarking
* Dependability of distributed databases and transaction processing
* Dependability of distributed multimedia systems
* Dependable communication networks, QoS control and assessment
* Dependable cooperative mobile systems: ad hoc networks, sensor
networks, robot networks
* Dependability in cyber-physical systems and internet-of-things
* Distributed algorithms
* Distributed objects and middleware systems
* Experimental or analytical evaluations of dependable distributed systems
* Fault tolerance, reliability and availability in distributed systems
* Formal methods and foundations for dependable distributed computing
* High-assurance and safety-critical distributed system design and
* Internet-based systems and applications
* Parallel and distributed operating systems
* Privacy-assuring large-scale data management systems
* Resilience in distributed infrastructures (vehicular networks, power
grids, etc.)
* Secure and trusted distributed systems
* Self-stabilization and fault recovery in distributed systems


Papers must be written in English and should be no longer than 10 pages,
following the IEEE two-column format for conference proceedings. All
necessary details to substantiate the main claims of the paper should be
included in a clearly marked appendix. Please check for information the
submission page at


SRDS 2016 plans to run pre-conference workshops (half-day or full-day) on
September 26th, 2016. Researchers interested in organizing a workshop on
topics related to reliable distributed systems are invited to submit
workshop proposals by February 28th, 2016. The Call for Workshops is
available at The workshops
will be announced on the symposium website.


SRDS 2016 will organize a PhD Student Forum. It provides an opportunity
for PhD students and graduate students to present their research to a
renowned audience, receive live feedback and exchange their ideas.


The symposium will highlight the best paper. All papers accepted for
presentation at the symposium will be evaluated for the Best Paper Award.
