This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Principles of Distributed Systems, OPODIS 2013, held in Nice, France, in December 2013. The 19 papers presented together with two invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 41 submissions. The conference is an international forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge on distributed computing and systems. Papers were sought soliciting original research contributions to the theory, specification, design and implementation of distributed systems.
