SSS is an international forum for researchers and practitioners in the design and development of distributed systems with a focus on systems that are able to provide guarantees on their structure, performance, and/or security in the face of an adverse operational environment. The symposium encourages submissions of original contributions on fundamental research and practical applications concerning topics in the four symposium tracks:

Track A. Self-stabilizing Systems: Theory and Practice
Track B. Foundations of Concurrent and Distributed Computing
Track C. Mobile and Robot Computing
Track D. Fault-tolerance, Security, and Privacy

All accepted papers will be published as proceedings of Springer LNCS series. Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for a special issue of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
