Call for Papers: 15th OPODIS international conference on Principles of Distributed Systems (December 13-16 2011 in Tolouse, France).
Deadline for submitting papers: July 15 2011. This year, Giuseppe Lipari and Antonio Fernández Anta, are program co-chairs.

OPODIS is an open forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge on distributed computing and systems among researchers from around the world. This conference is the 15th in a series of annual conferences. Following the tradition of the previous events, its program will be composed of high-quality contributed and invited papers.

The program committee is soliciting original and significant research contributions to the theory, specification, design and implementation of distributed systems, including:
- communication and synchronization protocols
- distributed algorithms, multiprocessor algorithms
- distributed cooperative computing
- embedded systems
- fault-tolerance, reliability, availability
- grid, cluster and cloud computing
- location- and context-aware systems
- mobile agents and autonomous robots
- mobile computing and networks
- peer-to-peer systems, overlay networks
- complexity and lower bounds
- social networks: modeling, analysis, and synthesis
- energy efficiency issues in distributed computing and systems
- performance analysis of distributed systems
- real-time systems
- security issues in distributed computing and systems
- sensor networks: theory and practice
- specification and verification of distributed systems
- testing and experimentation with distributed systems
