Title: Dynamic graph algorithms and their implementation

Abstract: While many algorithmic graph problems have been solved for static
graphs, graphs that are used as models in various applications often change
dynamically and, thus, require algorithms that can adapt quickly to the
deletion and insertion of edges. I will start with providing an overview of

We have a vacancy for a PhD student to develop techniques and tools for testing fault-tolerance of distributed systems.

Details: https://www.tudelft.nl/over-tu-delft/werken-bij-tu-delft/vacatures/details?jobId=4663
Application: Online<https://emea3.recruitmentplatform.com/apply-app/pages/application-form?jobId=QEZFK026203F3VBQBLO6G68W9-4663> (deadline: December 17th, 2021)

Job description:
Modern computation increasingly depends on large-scale distributed systems and blockchains. However, these systems are difficult to design and implement correctly. They may fail to ensure correctness in subtle executions with unexpected orderings of exchanged messages, network partitions, and process failures.
The PhD project aims to develop program analysis and testing techniques for improving reliability of distributed systems and blockchains.
The project lies in the intersection of software testing, program analysis, and

Dear colleagues,

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Physics
at TU Braunschweig is looking for applicants for a tenured associate
professorship (W2 in the German pay scale). The topic „Neuromorphic
Computing“ combines modern hardware and architecture (in particular,
using photons instead of electrons) with algorithms - in particular,
distributed and parallel computing.

As a consequence, this is not necessarily focused on hardware only.
If you have a relevant algorithmic background combined with
interest and willingness to interdisciplinary research, consider applying!
The deadline is August 31, 2021; due to the holiday season, slightly delayed
applications may still be considered.

We are looking for two PostDocs at Université Paris-Saclay (in the labs LISN and LMF) to develop algorithms for consortia of bacterial cells in distributed biocomputing circuits.

Position. We offer two PostDoc positions in a highly interdisciplinary project, working on the foundations of new robust distributed algorithms in microbiological systems. Both positions will initially be allocated for one year, with the possibility of extension. In exceptional cases, extension to up to three years is possible.

Dear members of the distributed computing community,

The CORE ranking provides a classification of conferences in computer science, see: portal.core.edu.au/conf-ranks <http://portal.core.edu.au/conf-ranks>. PODC and DISC are currently being re-evaluated and are facing the danger of being downgraded, which could have a negative academic impact on the members of our community. To support keeping PODC and DISC's high rankings, we are preparing a submission containing evidence as to the achievements of researchers in our community. We are asking the senior members of our community to provide information that we can use in order to exemplify that the current rankings are appropriate.
