Call For Papers [PDF]

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 that deal with design, development and experimental results of operational systems.

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

  • Cloud computing and virtualization: X-as-a-Service
  • Autonomic, pervasive, ubiquitous and diffuse computing
  • Secure and trusted systems
  • Secure and dependable web services
  • High-confidence systems
  • Parallel and distributed operating systems
  • Distributed objects and middleware systems
  • Fault-tolerant and secure sensor nets and wireless ad-hoc networks
  • Event-based and peer-to-peer infrastructures
  • Distributed databases and transaction processing
  • Distributed multimedia systems
  • Grid Computing
  • Electronic commerce and enabling technologies
  • Formal methods and foundations for dependable distributed computing
  • Analytical or experimental evaluations of dependable distributed systems
  • Distributed algorithms
  • Internet-based systems and applications
  • Wireless and ad-hoc networks
  • QoS control and assessment
  • Trust and scalable system design in social networks

Best Paper Award:

The symposium will highlight the best paper. All papers accepted for presentation at the symposium will be evaluated by the Best Paper Award Co-Chairs for the award. The authors of the awarded paper will receive 1,000 euros (taxable). The Best Paper Award is co-sponsored by Yahoo! Research.

"Travel Support"

Travel Support:

NSF has kindly agreed to support US students (students enrolled in US universities) with partial travel/registration to present papers in SRDS 2011. Contact person: Sanjay Madria, madrias@mst.edu. Last date to apply is Aug 25, 2011. The following information should be provided in your email submission:

  1. Paper title, Conf/workshop, full/short, student as first author or not, preference will be given to SRDS main conference papers.
  2. PhD student or MS, years in the graduate study
  3. Why you need support (justify in 15 lines)?
  4. A letter of recommendation from the supervisor

A team of organizing committee will evaluate each application and will notify students by Aug 25, 2011.
