Call for Abstracts


TransForm School on Research Directions in Distributed Computing aims at the dissemination of advanced scientific knowledge in the general area of distributed computing with emphasis on multi-core computing, synchronization protocols, and transactional memory. A major goal of the school is to explore new directions and approaches on hot topics of current research in these areas (and more generally in distributed computing) and to promote international contacts among scientists from academia and the industry. Research work from all viewpoints, including theory, practice, and experimentation can be presented at the school.
The school will include a series of talks by renowned researchers.
