Special Issue "19th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems (SSS)"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2018).
The 19th International Symposium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems (SSS 2017) is an international forum for researchers and practitioners on the design and development of distributed systems, with a focus on systems that are able to provide automatic recovery guarantees and robust structure, performance, and/or security in the face of an adverse operational environment.
Research in distributed systems is now at a crucial point in its evolution, marked by the importance and variety of dynamic distributed systems, such as peer-to-peer networks, large-scale sensor networks, mobile ad-hoc networks, and cloud computing. Moreover, new applications, such as grid and web services, distributed command and control, and a vast array of decentralized computations in a variety of disciplines has driven the need to ensure that distributed computations are self-stabilizing, performant, safe and secure.
The topics of interest to this Special Issue cover are in the scope of SSS 2017 (https://www.cs.bgu.ac.il/~fradmin/SSS17/index.html).
