WSS 99 Call For Papers


Fourth Workshop on Self-Stabilizing Systems (WSS'99)

Hyatt Regency Hotel, Austin, Texas, USA

June 5, 1999

Held in cooperation with the 19th International Conference of Distributed Computer Systems (ICDCS'99), co-sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Commitee on Distributed Processing

The Workshop on Self-Stabilizing Systems returns to Austin, Texas a decade after it was first held there (at MCC). In the interim, the workshop has also been held successfully at Las Vegas in 1995 and at Santa Barbara in 1997. This time, WSS is being organized jointly with the 19th International Conference of Distributed Computer Systems (ICDCS'99) (follow this link to see the ICDCS announcement).


WSS'99 provides a forum for the presentation of new research results, and the identification of future directions in its rapidly growing area of research. Original technical papers addressing the following topics of interest are solicited for presentation at the workshop and publication in the workshop proceedings.


Intended contributors are invited to submit a postscript file of their paper to the Program Committee Chair Anish Arora ( Submissions must not exceed 12 pages with roughly 35 lines/page. Submissions not conforming with these guidelines might not be considered. Please include e-mail, fax, and telephone information of the contact author. An e-mail message acknowledging the arrival of the submission will be sent.

Please note that a paper submitted to WSS'99 may also be concurrently submitted to ICDCS'99. The ICDCS deadline for submission is October 10, 1998. In this case, submit the paper *only* to ICDCS. Follow the ICDCS guidelines for electronic submission and, additionally, specify in the first (cover letter) email message that the paper is a joint submission to ICDCS and WSS. If the paper is accepted in ICDCS, then we will publish only a short abstract in the WSS Proceedings. Note also that a paper submitted to WSS'99 may not be concurrently submitted to any other conference or workshop.

The proceedings of this workshop will be published by the IEEE Computer Society. Those who attend both ICDCS'99 and WSS'99 will only need to pay the ICDCS registration fee and will receive the workshop proceedings alongwith the conference proceedings. Those who attend WSS'99 only will have to pay a separate registration fee, which will include the workshop proceedings.
