Cambridge & Boston Await You!

Welcome to DISC 2010

To be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA -- Sep. 13-15, 2010

The International Symposium on DIStributed Computing, is an international forum on the theory, design, analysis, implementation and application of distributed systems and networks. DISC is organized in cooperation with the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS).

Publication of the Proceedings

in the Lecture Note in Computer Science

All accepted papers will be published in the Lecture Note in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer.


Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for a special issue of the Distributed Computing journal.

Announcement of Dijkstra Prize 2010

The 2010 Edsger W. Dijkstra Prize in Distributed Computing
