Brief Announcement accepted at DISC 2015!

18 August 2015

Our paper On the Voting Time of the Deterministic Majority Process has been accepted as a brief announcement to the 29th International Symposium on Distributed Computing (DISC) 2015! The brief announcement will be presented in Tokio in October 2015; the full paper can be found on arXiv.

ICDCS’15 Conference

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!

IPDPS’15 Conference

31 May 2015

From May 25 to May 29 I attended the IPDPS’15 conference in Hyderabad, India. I also held a talk on Wednesday, May 27, where I presented our recent research in the area of randomized information dissemination. The presentation slides I used in my talk are available online and the paper can be found on arXiv.

Travel and Hotel

I had a pleasant flight since I managed to get a seat with lots of space for my legs. The hotel was nice with friendly staff and good breakfast.

Hyderabad

On Tuesday evening we booked a taxi and went sightseeing in Hyderabad.
