DISC was formerly known as WDAG. The name change, which took effect in 1998, reflects the expansion from a workshop to a symposium and from distributed algorithms to all aspects of distributed computing. The first DISC was held in Andros, Greece in September 1998.
The broad scope of the symposium provides an opportunity to bring together specialists in theory, design, analysis, implementation, or application of distributed systems and networks. Principal topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
|Rida Bazzi (Arizona State U.)|
|Ajoy Datta (U. of Nevada, Las Vegas)|
|Peter Dickman (U. of Glasgow)|
|Panagiota Fatourou (Max-Planck Inst.)|
|Paola Flocchini (U. of Ottawa)|
|Lisa Higham (U. of Calgary)|
|Christos Kaklamanis (CTI)|
|Idit Keidar (MIT)|
|Michael Merritt (ATT Laboratories)|
|Enrico Nardelli (L'Acquila)|
|Luis Rodrigues (U. of Lisbon)|
|Peter Ruzicka (Comenius )|
|Assaf Schuster (Technion)|
|Mark Tuttle (Compaq Research)|
|Roger Wattenhofer (Microsoft Research)|
|Jennifer Welch (Texas A&M)|
|Peter Widmayer (ETH Zurich)|
