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 one of the most important scientific events on computer networks and distributed systems in Latin America. The large number of submitted papers and attendees in recent years contribute to its importance: the number of attendees per year varies from 800 to 1,200, and the paper acceptance rate is less than 30%, with over 300 submissions registered in each of the past few years.
In its 30th edition, the symposium will be held from April 30th to May 4th, 2012, in the Center of Arts and Conventions of UFOP (Parque Metalurgico Augusto Barbosa), in the city of Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The event is being organized by the Department of Computer Science of Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) with the support of the Department of Computing of Federal University of Ouro Preto (UFOP). The symposium will be composed of technical sessions, panels, several related workshops, a tools session, invited talks and tutorials presented by internationally acclaimed researchers. Ouro Preto was the first Brazilian city to be declared UNESCO world heritage site and is one of the best-preserved colonial towns in Brazil.
Looking forward to meeting you soon in the beautiful city of Ouro Preto, you are very welcome!
