Yoram Moses Birthday Celebration

We are happy to announce that that there will be a set of invited talks in celebration of the 60th birthday of Yoram Moses at DISC 2017! The talks will be held on the afternoon of October 17th by Joe Halpern, Moshe Tenenholtz, and Moshe Vardi.


Original contributions to theory, design, implementation, modeling, analysis, or application of distributed systems and networks are solicited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Distributed algorithms and data structures: correctness and complexity
  • Concurrency, synchronization, and transactional memory
  • Distributed operating systems, middleware, database systems
  • Self-stabilizing, self-organizing, and autonomous systems
  • Wireless, mobile, sensor and ad-hoc networks
  • Fault tolerance, reliability, availability
  • Game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing
  • Specification, verification, and testing: tools, methodologies
  • Networks: protocols, architectures, services, applications
  • Multiprocessor and multicore parallel architectures and algorithms
  • System on chip and network on chip architectures
  • Security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols
  • Distributed computing issues in the Internet and the Web
  • Cloud and peer-to-peer computing
  • Software-defined networking and network functions virtualization
  • Data science and network science
  • Mobile agents and autonomous robots
  • Biological and nature-inspired distributed algorithms
  • Block chain, MapReduce, and other recent distributed paradigms
