DISC 2013


The International Symposium on DIStributed Computing (DISC) is an international forum on the theory, design, analysis, implementation and application of distributed systems and networks. DISC 2013 will be held in Jerusalem, Israel between 14 and 18 to October. DISC is organized in cooperation with the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS).

The conference will take place in Begin Center, located in Jerusalem, on the Hinnom Ridge, facing the Old City wall and offers a spectacular view of the Tower of David, the Old City walls and the Judean Desert.

Registration is now opetn  (Early registration ends on September 11)
