Talk Title:  "Work-in-Progress Talks by Distributed Comp uting Researchers"

Talk Abstract:

The ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS S ymposium on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC) focuses on research in the theory, design, specification, and implementation of distributed systems.

The occasion of the PODC 2009 program committee meeting at UT-Austin on April 2, 2009 brings together top academic and industrial researchers in distributed computing.

The 2009 Workshop on Dist ributed Computing, Friday, April 3, 2009, presents work-in-progress tal ks by several PODC program committee members. The Workshop is an exciting o pportunity to sample the newest research by the top practitioners in the fi eld, including
Ittai Abraham (MSR Silicon Valley, USA)
Marcos Aguilera (MSR Silicon Valley, USA)
Hagit Attiya (Technion, Israel)Rida Bazzi (Arizona State U, USA)
Christian Cachin (IBM Zurich, Switzerland)
Rachid Guerraoui (EPFL, Switzerland)
Tim Harris (MS R Cambridge, UK)
Anne-Marie Kermarrec (INRIA, France)
Dahlia Ma lkhi (MSR Silicon Valley, USA)
Alessandro Panconesi (Sapienza U, Ita ly)
Sergio Rajsbaum (UNAM, Mexico)
