Aims and scope

The international journal Distributed Computing provides a forum for original and significant contributions to the theory, design, specification and implementation of distributed systems.

Topics covered by the journal include but are not limited to:

    design and analysis of distributed algorithms;
    multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms;
    synchronization protocols and concurrent programming;
    distributed operating systems and middleware;
    fault-tolerance, reliability and availability;
    architectures and protocols for communication networks and peer-to-peer systems;
    security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols;
    mobile, sensor, and ad hoc networks;
    internet applications;
    concurrency theory;
    specification, semantics, verification, and testing of distributed systems.

In general, only original papers will be considered. By virtue of submitting a manuscript to the journal, the authors attest that it has not been published or submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. However, papers previously presented in conference proceedings may be submitted in enhanced form. If a paper has appeared previously, in any form, the authors must clearly indicate this and provide an account of the differences between the previously appeared form and the submission.

Special Issues
Special Issue on PODC 2024 (By Invitation Only)
Submission Date: 2024-09-15

This Special Issue highlights the best papers from the ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC 2023) held in Nantes, France June 17-21, 2024. Submission Guidelines: Authors should prepare their manuscript according to the Instructions for Authors available from the Distributed Computing website. Authors should submit through the online submission site at Distributed Computing and select “PODC 2024" when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process. Submitted papers should present original, unpublished work, relevant to the topics of the special issue. All submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of relevance, significance of contribution, technical quality, scholarship, and quality of presentation, by at least three independent reviewers. It is the policy of the journal that no submission, or substantially overlapping submission, be published or be under review at another journal or conference at any time during the review process. Final decisions on all papers are made by the Editor in Chief. Submission deadline: September 15, 2024
