From August 24 to August 28, I attended the Euro-Par conference in Vienna which was hosted at the Vienna University of Technology.

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 Juli 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!
