Call For Papers
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.

The theory of self-stabilization has been enriched in the last 40 years by high quality research contributions in the areas of algorithmic techniques, formal methodologies, model theoretic issues, and composition techniques. All these areas are essential to the understanding and maintenance of self-* properties in fault-tolerant distributed systems.

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.

Now, more than ever, the theory of self-stabilization has tremendous impact in these areas. Last two years, the scope of the symposium was expanded to cover all safety and security related aspects of self-* systems. The symposium solicits contributions on all these aspects from theoretical contributions, to reports of the actual experience of applying the principles of self-stabilization to static and dynamic systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


q  self-stabilizing systems
