04 July 2015

From June 29th to July 3rd I attended the 35th IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2015) in Columbus, Ohio. The last flight from Toronto to Columbus was an Air Canada flight on a Bombardier Dash 8-100 Machine. I have never – ever – felt so uncomfortabe!

At the conference, I presented our recent results on diffusion based load balancing. Our paper (On Discrete Load Balancing in Heterogeneous Networks with a Focus on Second-Order Diffusion) can be obtained from arXiv. The presentation slides are also available online!
