OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge on distributed computing and distributed computer systems. All aspects of distributed systems are within the scope of OPODIS, including theory, specification, design, performance, and system building.

OPODIS is traditionally strong in the theoretical aspects of distributed systems; furthermore, OPODIS is expanding its coverage to include the overlap between theoretical solutions and practical implementations, as well as experimentation and quantitative assessments.

OPODIS 2014 will feature a pre-conference day dedicated to workshops and tutorials. We invite experts on related research subjects to submit workshop and tutorial proposals in the scope of OPODIS 2014. Proposed workshops and tutorials can be on any domain related to the topics of OPODIS that are listed on the Call for Papers:

WORKSHOP PROPOSAL

The duration of a workshop is a half-day. A workshops proposal should not exceed three (3) pages in length using a 11pt font size. It must include the following information:

- The title of the workshop;

- The names, e-mail addresses and affiliations of the organizers (including a program committee if applicable);
- A description of the organizers' strategy for attracting submissions and attendees to the workshop, including information about how publicity will be carried to attract world-wide participation.

Workshop proposals must be sent by email directly to the workshop and tutorial chair (etienne.riviere at unine.ch) in PDF format.

The conference organization will provide catering (coffee breaks and lunch). If a workshop wishes to have proceedings, the publication process is under the responsibility of the workshop organizers.

TUTORIAL PROPOSAL

Experts in the domains covered by OPODIS are invited to share their expertise with the community by submitting proposals for tutorials. The duration of a tutorial is one session (90 to 120 minutes), including time for questions.

A tutorial proposal should not exceed three (3) pages in length using a 11pt font size. It must include the following information:

- The title of the tutorial;
- An abstract of the tutorial content;
- A brief statement of the relevance of the tutorial to OPODIS;
- The name(s), e-mail address(es) and affiliation(s) of the presenter(s);
- The biography and relevant publications of the presenter(s);
- If the authors will consider submitting an abstract of the tutorial (see below);
- When applicable, if and where the tutorial has already been given in the past.

Presenters of tutorials will be given the possibility to publish an extended abstract of the tutorial content in the proceedings of the conference, published in Springer's LNCS series. Such extended abstracts are encouraged but optional, and will have to be accepted through peer review before inclusion. The page limit will be 15 pages in LNCS format.

Tutorial proposals must be sent by email  directly to the workshop and tutorial chair (etienne.riviere at unine.ch) in PDF format.

For both tutorials and workshops, selection will be based on a combination of the adequacy of topics with the OPODIS topics, the timeliness and potential to attract or establish new communities, and the proposed organization.
