Welcome to the Distributed Algorithms and Systems page.

The purpose of this page is to provide a single entry-point to all sorts of pointers relevant to research in distributed algorithms and systems. We therefore explicitly solicit any references to information that might be of interest to this community, e.g. conference announcements and calls-for-papers, pointers to institutes, projects, literature, bibliographies, special pages describing a particular research area, and many more. So if you have any comments, additions, useful references etc., send them to us.

A Mailing List

In addition to this WWW page, there is a mailing-list operational that aims to `promote the exchange of ideas and information relating to "Distributed Algorithms" amongst researchers and practitioners in the field'. For more information check the following URL.
The messages of this mailing list are also archived and indexed. Messages after Wed, 5 Feb 1997.

Summer, Spring Schools and Workshops

Searching Literature

There are several Bibliographies on Distributed Computing and Networking available on the net. These are part of a huge Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies (in BibTeX format), which you can search or simply browse. You might also try searching one of the REFDBMS gateways in the USA or the Netherlands.
