The choice of Leader is a general problem with many applications in distributed systems. It usually occurs when a group of agents are distributed (for example. B process, applications, services, components, programs, algorithms, sensors, robots) must perform a collective function and requires a single agent to act as a synchronization leader. A leading approach to choosing a leader in a dynamic network is based on link reversal [1]: each connected component ends up stabilizing on a cyclical graph directed with a single declared flow leading. Documents must be sent electronically via EasyChair to the following address (easychair.org/conferences/?conf=opodis19). Submissions must be made in English in pdf format and prepared with the LaTeX models for LIPIcs and the selection of the A4 paper option. A submission should not exceed 16 pages, including cover, illustrations, tables and references. The cover should contain the title of the document, a list of keywords and a summary of 1 to 2 paragraphs that includes the submission`s contributions. The presentation should include a clear presentation of the benefits of the document, including discussion of its importance, previous work and an overview of key technical ideas and methods used to achieve key claims.

All ideas that an expert needs to conduct a full review of centralized applications at the time of submission, including experimental results, should be included in the submission or in a clearly identified schedule. The appendix is read at the discretion of the evaluators. If you wish, the appendix can be a copy of the full document. An application must account for initial research that has not previously been published in a journal or conference with published procedures. It should not be subject to such a review or conference at the same time. Any overlap with a document published or submitted at the same time must be clearly stated. Program chairs reserve the right to refuse contributions that are lower or significantly lower or that violate filing guidelines. Each of the remaining documents is subject to a thorough review. Registrations are open, please go here (and also check the registration requirements). During the Masters, a student studies research through research.

Thus, during the two years of the Masters, a student will spend between one or two days a week in a research group to conduct research projects with professors and PhD students from IP Paris. OPODIS published post-Proceedings by Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) in Open Access Gold mode. The proceedings will be available online for free after the conference. Preliminary versions of the procedure will be made available to conference participants electronically. The compatible version of a paper must have the same format and length as the submitted version. M1 and M2 students should send their research report by email by Friday 19.02.2021. M1 students are expected to update their report and resubmit it in June. Distributed optimization and reconciliation: how difficult can this be? We will use double-blind peer review in OPODIS 2019. All applications must be anonymous. We`ll use a somewhat relaxed implementation of the double-blind peer review in OPODIS 2019: you can spread your work on arXiv and other online repositories and make presentations to your work as usual. However, be sure not to mention your own name or membership in the repository and not include any obvious indications that reveal your identity.

A critic who has not yet seen the paper should be able to read it without accidentally knowing the identity of the authors. Please contact PC chairs if you have any questions about OPODIS 2019`s double-blind policy.
