Distributed Algorithms

Topic 09


The wide acceptance of the internet standards and technologies, the emerging Grid structures makes it hard to imagine a situation in which it would be easier to argue about the importance of distributed algorithms than it is today.


Euro-Par intends to provide a forum for researchers from academia and industry interested in distributed algorithms, including the areas of communications, active networks, real-time algorithms and operating systems issues. Innovative algorithms improving the security in distributed systems are of particular interest.


  • design and analysis of distributed algorithms (including performance analysis)
  • resource sharing in distributed systems
  • real-time distributed algorithms and systems
  • distributed algorithms in telecommunications
  • distributed mobile computing
  • cryptography, security and privacy in distributed systems
  • distributed fault-tolerance
  • efficient algorithms based on shared memory and distributed memory
