Call For Papers

Aim and Scope:

NETYS aims to bring together researchers and engineers from both the theory
and practice of distributed and networked systems. The scope of the
conference covers all aspects related to the design and the development of
these systems, including, but not restricted to, concurrent and distributed
algorithms, parallel/concurrent/distributed programming, multi-core
architectures, distributed databases, cloud systems, networks, security,
formal verification, etc.

NETYS will provide a forum to report on best practices and novel
algorithms, results and techniques on networked systems. Original research
contributions and experience papers on the principles, design,
implementation, modeling, analysis, verification, and application of
networked systems are solicited.

NETYS is coupled with the METIS Spring School which aims at introducing
young researchers to the domain of distributed and networked systems
through tutorials on basics, as well as lectures on new research topics and
current trends in this domain.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Cloud systems and data centers
- Concurrent and distributed algorithms
- Cyber-physical systems
- Distributed databases, embedded and operating systems
- Distributed ledgers and blockchain technologies
- Event-based systems
- Formal verification
- Middleware environments
- Mobile, wireless, ad-hoc and sensor networks
- Multi-core architectures and multithreaded applications
- Overlay and peer-to-peer infrastructures
- Security and privacy
- Self-stabilizing, self-organizing,and autonomic systems
- Social networks
- Static and dynamic analysis and testing
- Web-based and service-oriented architectures

Paper submission:

Submissions must be original papers that contain sufficient detail to
assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. NETYS welcomes papers
on theory, case studies and comparisons with existing experimental
research, tools, as well as combinations of new theory with experimental

NETYS is soliciting two forms of submission: full and short papers. Full
papers are allowed a maximum of 15 pages in Springer's LNCS format, excluding
bibliographic references, and will be allowed at least 20 minutes for presentation
at the conference, whereas short papers are allowed a maximum of 5 pages
(in the same format) and will be allowed at least 5 minutes for presentation
at the conference. A full paper submission might be accepted as such, as a short
paper or a poster. A short paper may be accepted as such or as a poster.

Posters will be presented at the conference to reflect work in progress and
will not lead to a publication in the proceedings. Authors are given the
option to accept or not the type in which their paper is selected for

All submissions must be written in English, follow the LNCS template, and adhere to
the page limits. Papers exceeding these limits may be rejected without review.
A clearly marked appendix can be included for supplementary materials but the appendix
will be read at the discretion of the reviewers; therefore, the main body of the
paper should contain sufficient details to assess its contributions.

Paper submission will be handled by EasyChair, so please make sure that you
have an active account. The papers must be submitted electronically at:


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

The Springer journal Computing may consider publishing extended versions of
selected papers (

Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper. 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 indicated in
the submission.
