Papers are to be submitted via easychair.

Abstracts of regular papers must be registered by the registration deadline indicated above; full papers are due only by the submission deadline. A submission for a regular presentation must report on original research. Papers submitted for regular presentations must contain results that have not previously appeared, and have not been concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings, with a special exception of PODC 2017 (details below). Any partial overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated. Papers for regular presentation must be no longer than 12 single-column pages on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font, including tables and references. Up to 4 additional pages of figures may be included with the submission. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the program committee.

A submission for a brief announcement must be no longer than 3 single-column pages on letter-size paper using at least 11-point font. Such submissions may describe work in progress or work presented elsewhere. A submission that is not selected for regular presentation may be invited for a brief announcement.

Concurrent submission with PODC.

This year, the program committees of PODC and SIROCCO have decided to allow for double submission of papers that are relevant both to PODC and to SIROCCO. As usual, double submission of papers is not allowed. There is one exception to this rule: by agreement with the PODC PC, papers can be submitted concurrently to PODC and SIROCCO. The procedure for this double submission is as follows: papers which are doubly submitted should indicate their double submission status when submitting to SIROCCO. During the submission the authors will be asked if they allow for the PC of PODC to transfer the reviewers’ comments from the PODC PC to the SIROCCO PC. This will be done only for papers rejected from PODC after the PODC decisions are announced (April 28). Authors of a doubly-submitted paper can withdraw their submission from SIROCCO (this is mandatory if the full paper is published in PODC). Once accepted to SIROCCO, a paper will not be allowed to be published elsewhere.
