Scope. OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge on distributed computing and systems among researchers from around the world. This conference is the 16th in a series of annual conferences. Following the tradition of the previous events, its program will be composed of high-quality contributed and invited papers.
The program committee is soliciting original and significant research contributions to the theory, specification, design and implementation of distributed systems, including:
  • communication and synchronization protocols
  • distributed algorithms
  • distributed cooperative computing
  • distributed event processing
  • fault-tolerance, reliability, availability
  • grid, cluster, and cloud computing
  • mobile agents and autonomous robots
  • peer-to-peer systems, overlay networks
  • performance analysis of distributed systems
  • real-time systems
  • security issues in distributed computing and systems
  • sensor networks: theory and practice
  • social networks: modeling, analysis, and synthesis
  • specification and verification of distributed systems
  • testing and experimentation with distributed systems
  • theory of distributed computing
  • wireless and mobile computing
Important dates. Submission deadline: July 10, 2012 Acceptance notification: September 15, 2012 Camera-ready copy due: September 29, 2012

Submission. Submitted papers must be written in English and must not exceed 12 letter-size pages using 11-point font and reasonable margins, including figures, tables and references.
