§ Distributed computing theory, computability, knowledge

§ Concurrency and synchronization, transactional memory

§ Distributed algorithms and data structures: correctness and complexity

§ Distributed graph algorithms, dynamic networks, network science

§ Multiprocessor and multicore parallel architectures and algorithms

§ Circuits, Systems on chip and networks on chip

§ Wireless, mobile, sensor and ad-hoc networks

§ Fault tolerance and self-stabilization, reliability, availability

§ Security in distributed computing, cryptographic protocols

§ Blockchain and other recent distributed paradigms

§ Game-theoretic approaches to distributed computing

§ Formal veriļ¬cation, synthesis and testing: methodologies, tools

§ Distributed operating systems, middleware, and distributed programming

§ Distributed databases, big data, cloud and peer-to-peer computing

§ Mobile agents, autonomous distributed systems, swarm robotics

§ Biological and nature-inspired distributed algorithms

§ Machine learning and distributed computing

Workshops will be held in conjunction with DISC on Monday, October 15,
2018 and on Friday, October 19, 2018.

A proposal for a workshop should consist of the following:
