SRDS 2020 : The 39th International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems

Shanghai, China (or online)
Event Date: Sep 21, 2020 - Sep 24, 2020
Abstract Submission Deadline: May 08, 2020
Submission Deadline: May 15, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: Jul 10, 2020
Camera Ready Version Due : Aug 02, 2020


 The conference will serve as an international forum for the presentation and exchange of technological advances and research results in the broad fields of distributed systems design, development and evaluation. The conference will bring together leading researchers, engineers and scientists in the domain of interest from around the world.

Dear SRDS friends,

With the current COVID-19 situation we are unable to foresee the viability of the planned conference meeting in Shanghai. Moreover, the pandemic nature of the disease also prevents its relocation to a safe place.

Therefore, we have decided to stick to the SRDS 2020 plan except that, this year, the conference meeting might be held on cyberspace. This means that all the important dates on the website should be observed, the reviewing and selection of papers will follow the exact procedures and criteria of previous editions, and that we aim at the high quality technical program and IEEE proceedings SRDS has used us to in the last 38 years.

If conditions allow, we will have a physical conference meeting in Shanghai as planned. Otherwise, Shanghai Jiao Tong University will arrange for a virtual meeting with online presentations, discussion panels, Q&A sessions and discussion fora. Only the face to face networking and the promised mouth watering banquet will have to wait for another opportunity. In either case, anyone will be able to attend the conference online.

Call For Paper

The 39th International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS 2020) is a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in distributed systems design, development and evaluation, with emphasis on reliability, availability, safety, dependability, security, and real-time. We welcome Research Papers describing original research as well as design, development and experimental results of operational systems, Practical Experience Reports describing ongoing industrial projects, prototype systems and exploratory or emerging applications, and Tool Papers describing architecture, implementation and usage of substantive tools to aid the research and practice of reliable distributed systems. Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category.

The authors of the best ranked papers of SRDS will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing.

Topics of Interest

The major areas of interest include the following topics:

  • Dependability, security and privacy of distributed systems including, but not limited to, cloud, high-performance, fog, and edge computing; distributed data storage and processing; distributed machine learning and AI; safety-critical distributed systems; Internet of Things, vehicular, robotic, cyber-physical and mobile systems.
  • Techniques and algorithms advancing the state-of-the-art in fault tolerance, fault recovery, robustness, self-stabilization, self-healing, scalability, and real-time for distributed systems. These include, but are not limited to, coordination, replication, failure prediction and detection, microservices, transactions, and blockchains.
  • Methods and tools for the design, implementation, verification, validation, and operation of dependable and secure distributed applications, middleware, operating systems and hardware.
  • Analytical, simulative and experimental assessment of dependable and secure distributed systems, in particular, when in real settings or with real data and in large scale and complex environments
