*****************************************************************************

DisCoTec 2022 is one of the major events sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and the European Association for Programming Languages and Systems (EAPLS). It gathers conferences and workshops that cover a broad spectrum of distributed computing subjects — from theoretical foundations and formal description techniques, testing and verification methods, to language design and system implementation approaches.

Pre-conference workshops and tutorials will take place on Monday, June 13, 2022, and post-conference workshops on Friday, June 17, 2022.

Submissions of workshop proposals must reach the workshop chairs by December 21, 2021.

* Workshops *

The DisCoTec 2022 organising committee solicits proposals for workshops to provide a vivid and open forum for discussions among active researchers on topics related to the distributed computing field. The aim is to facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences via presentations of preliminary research results and ongoing works, as well as presentations of research work to a focussed audience.

A workshop associated with DisCoTec 2022 can be one-day or half-day in length. Workshop registration will be done together with the main conferences, allowing workshop-only registrations as well.

A workshop proposal must include the following information:

  - name of the workshop

  - contact information of the Workshop Chair(s)

  - brief description of the aim and scope of the workshop (max. 500 words)

  - tentative Program and Organization Committees, if available

  - number of (expected) submissions and/or attendees  

  - history of the workshop, if any, including the numbers of submissions,

    accepted papers, and attendees of the last edition

  - any other relevant information (e.g., invited speakers, panels)

  - December 27, 2021: Notification of accepted workshop proposals

  - Mid April 2022: Workshop paper submission deadline

* Tutorials *

The DisCoTec 2022 organising committee encourages proposals for tutorials to complement the program of the main conferences and co-located workshops. The scope of a tutorial should focus on emerging topics and aspects of the distributed computing field, ranging from new practical techniques and technologies to lessons learnt from projects and industry experiences. No marketing or product-specific tutorials will be accepted.

A tutorial associated with DisCoTec 2022 can be short (1 session lasting up to 1.5 hours) or long (2 sessions lasting up to 3 hours in total). Tutorials will be included in both full and workshop-only registrations.

A tutorial proposal must include the following information:

  - title of the tutorial

  - contact information and short bio of the tutorial speaker(s)

  - brief description of the aim and scope of the tutorial (max. 500 words)

  - brief discussion about why the tutorial topic is relevant to the

    DisCoTec community  (max. 200 words)

  - intended audience (academics, students, practitioners, etc.)

  - any prior experience for the speaker(s) giving this or related tutorial

Important dates (for all tutorials):

  - February 28, 2022: Tutorial proposal submission deadline

* COVID-19 pandemic *

DisCoTec 2022 should take place physically in Lucca. Anyway, we are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic development and are prepared to run the conferences and the satellite events virtually or in a hybrid fashion in the unfortunate situation that a physical event is not feasible. The paper selection process and the publication of proceedings will not be affected regardless of whether the event is held physically, virtually or in a hybrid fashion.
