The Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SBRC) is the flagship annual symposium of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and the National Computer Networks Laboratory (LARC) on computer networking and distributed systems. After almost four decades, it has become one of the most popular events among those promoted by SBC.
The importance of SBRC can be observed by the number of research papers submitted/accepted and attendees over the years. Every year, around 600 participants among professors, researchers, students, and professionals from Brazil and abroad, present and discuss their latest scientific and technical achievements in networking and distributed systems. In addition, the main track has received annually between 250 and 300 submissions, and kept the acceptance rate between 25 and 30%. Such strong participation may be credited to the symposium’s reputation, built after years of dedication of past organizing, steering, and program committee members. The diversity and scope of its parallel activities, and rigorous review process, also contribute to make SBRC the premier venue where the Brazilian (and Latin American) networking community comes together.
The 37th edition of SBRC will be held from 6 to 10 May 2019 in Gramado – RS, under the organization of the Institute of Informatics (INF) of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). The symposium is traditionally composed of technical sessions, keynotes, poster and demo sessions, panels, workshops, and tutorials, given by internationally renowned researchers. The symposium will feature again a Hackathon and a Dissertation Digest.
