Extensible Distributed Systems Workshop

data sm

A Distributed System is a system consisting of multiple computers communicating through message passing.  In the past 50 years, distributed systems have evolved from being a novelty to a fact of life---a very large fraction of computers today are part of a distributed system. 
Through five sessions, the workshop will (a) discuss the gap between the current foundations that the distributed systems community has developed and the challenges and opportunities offered by today’s applications and infrastructure, and (b) identify possible solutions.
