*** NOTE: Reduced early registration fees have been extended through November 22nd! ***

You are kindly invited to participate in the 18th International Conference on the Principles of Distributed Systems (OPODIS).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.

The conference will take place in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy's premier mountain resort, is exclusively positioned in the breathtaking UNESCO World Natural Heritage Dolomites, one of the most beautiful and unique alpine regions in the world. A Best of the Alps resort and a symbol of style, fashion and the Italian way of life, Cortina is the perfect destination for those who seek a truly special experience where natural beauty, culture, tradition, art, food and wine fuse together in pure joie de vivre. The spectacular scenery and full range of alpine sports and outdoor activities offered by this bustling mountain town, host to world-cups and international championships, attract nature lovers and sports enthusiasts during all seasons. OPODIS will be hosted at the Splendid Hotel Venezia located in the very hearth of Cortina.
