Call for Paper

The Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SBRC) is an annual event promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and by the National Computer Networks Laboratory (LARC). SBRC has become the most important scientific event on computer networks and distributed systems in Latin America. Its importance can be attested by the large number of attendees and submissions it has received for several years.

In its 30th edition, the symposium will be held from April 30th to May 4th 2012, in Ouro Preto, MG, Brazil. It is being organized by the Department of Computer Science of Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), with the local support from the Department of Computing of Federal University of Ouro Preto (UFOP). The symposium features not only technical sessions, but also panels, several workshops, a tools demonstration session as well as invited talks and tutorials presented by internationally acclaimed researchers. Specific calls to the several activities during SBRC will be announced latter. Authors of the best papers selected for publication and presentation in SBRC 2012 will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to the Brazilian Journal of Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (RB-RESD).
