8. Distributed Systems and Algorithms


Parallel computing is increasingly exposed to the development and challenges of distributed systems, such as the lack of load balancing, asynchrony, long latencies, network partitions, failures, disconnected operations, heterogeneity and protocol standardization. Furthermore, distributed systems are becoming larger, more diverse and more dynamic (changing topology, highly dynamic number of participants). This Euro-Par topic provides a forum for research and practice, of interest to both academia and industry, about distributed systems, distributed computing, distributed algorithms, and parallel processing on distributed systems. We encourage submission of papers across the whole area, with emphasis on the following:


  • Design and practice of distributed algorithms and data structures
  • Analysis of the behaviour of distributed systems and algorithms
  • Distributed operating systems
  • Parallel processing on distributed systems
  • Resource and service discovery
  • Resource sharing in distributed systems
  • Distributed fault tolerance
  • Security in distributed systems
  • Scalability, concurrency and performance in distributed systems
  • Middleware for parallel computations
  • Web services
  • Interoperability and standards
  • Self organised and selfadjusting distributed systems
