[PVS] SSS 2009 -- Last Call For Papers



******************************************************************************
                                 - SSS 2009 -

                        11th International Symposium on
          Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems

                       November 3-6, 2009, Lyon, France
                        http://graal.ens-lyon.fr/SSS09/

******************************************************************************

The Symposium is a prestigious international forum for researchers and
practitioners in the design and development of fault-tolerant distributed
systems with self-* properties, such as self-stabilizing, self-configuring,
self-organizing, self-managing, self-repairing, self-healing, self-optimizing,
self-adaptive, and self-protecting.  Research in distributed systems is now
at a crucial point in its evolution, marked by the importance of dynamic 
systems such as peer-to-peer networks, large-scale wireless sensor networks,
mobile ad hoc networks, robotic networks, etc. Moreover, new applications such
as grid and web services, banking and e-commerce, e-health and robotics,
aerospace and avionics, automotive, industrial process control, etc. have 
joined the traditional applications of distributed systems.

The conference provides a wide spectrum of topics, covered in the following
tracks: 
* Alternative Systems and Models
* Autonomic Computational Science 
* Cloud Computing 
* Embedded Systems 
* Fault-Tolerance in Distributed Systems / Dependability
* Formal Methods in Distributed Systems
* Grid Computing 
* Mobility and Dynamic Networks 
* Multicore Computing
* Peer-to-Peer Systems 
* Self-Organizing Systems 
* Sensor Networks 
* Stabilization 
* System Safety and Security 


IMPORTANT DATES
* Paper Submission: May 31, 2009
* Initial Notification and Beginning of Rebuttal Phase: July 24, 2009
* End of Rebuttal Phase: July 28, 2009
* Final Notification: August 1, 2009
* Camera Ready Submission: August 15, 2009


PAPER SUBMISSION
Papers must be submitted in PDF format and be prepared using the LNCS style.
Detailed instructions for submitting papers will be available later.
Two types of papers can be submitted: Regular Papers and Brief Announcements.
Submissions for regular papers should be no longer than 15 pages
(including the title, authors, abstract, figures, and references) in LNCS 
style; a submission may have an appendix of at most two pages beyond the
15 page limit. Brief announcements are restricted to two pages using the
LNCS style, with no appendix. Submissions deviating from these guidelines
will be rejected without consideration of their merits. 
If requested by the authors on the submission system, a regular submission
that is not selected for a regular presentation will also be considered for
a brief announcement.  Such a request will not affect consideration of the
paper for a regular paper. 
A paper submitted at this forum is expected to be original research not
previously published. A submission may not be concurrently submitted to
another conference, workshop, or journal. 


PUBLICATION
The proceedings of the conference will be published in the 
Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
Selected conference papers, provided they are within the scope of ACM TAAS,
will be published in a special issue of that journal. 


REBUTTAL PHASE 
The review process will include a rebuttal phase. Authors will be able
to comment on the reviews of their submissions. 

BEST PAPER AND BEST STUDENT AWARDS
A best paper and a best student paper award will be selected by the 
program committee. 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 by marking an appropriate box in
the submission system.
