Welcome to SRDS 2021

The 40th International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS 2021) is a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in distributed systems design, development and evaluation, with an emphasis on reliability, availability, safety, dependability, security, verification, and real-time systems. We welcome Research Papers describing original research, as well as design, development and experimental results of operational systems, practical experience reports describing ongoing industrial projects, prototype systems and exploratory or emerging applications, and tool papers describing architecture, implementation and usage of substantive tools to aid the research and practice of reliable distributed systems. Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category.
SRDS 2021 will be held at Chicago, USA virtually during September 20th - 23rd, 2021.

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the final format of the conference (online, hybrid, or physical) is not yet decided. We will make a decision based on the the circumstances in June, 2021.
