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. For example, what language should they use? What communication library or tool should use to enable the communication between processes? Over which platform should the algorithm be implemented and evaluated? What tradeoffs must be taken into consideration, i.e., choose a low-cost (or free) publically available setting with moderate maintenance or an expensive, developer-friendly one?

Context is also very important. Some design assumptions might not be feasible nor affordable to be implemented in practice, or certain considerations might be irrelevant. In other words, some important issues in theory, might not be important in practice whereas some practical obstacles deserve more attention and analysis.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together designers and practitioners of distributed systems from both academia and industry to share their point of views and experiences. We solicit submissions describing research results and/or position papers relevant to the topic of interest to ApPLIED. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* The process of designing an algorithm to developing a prototype implementation suitable for running on working systems.
* Success stories in which the evaluation of (perhaps known) distributed algorithms resulted in further (analytical) insights.
* Position papers that consider new directions, opinions and learned lessons.

Victor Luchangco, Oracle Labs, US

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 6 pages excluding cover page and references. Additional necessary details may be included in an 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.

* 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 3 pages excluding cover page and references. The material in these short research statements may be published in 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 to the workshop and presenting their work.


Papers are to be submitted electronically through EasyChair:

Papers are to be submitted electronically, following the guidelines on the workshop web page. Submission must be in English, in pdf format, and in ACM proceedings style (ACM SIG). Each paper must begin with a cover page containing: (1) title, (2) author names and affiliations, (3) contact author's email, (4) abstract, and (5) 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.
