Dear Colleagues,

The first round deadline of the 26th International Symposium on
Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems (SSS) was
extended to April 14, 2024. Although SSS 2024 has two submission
deadlines, we highly encourage you to submit your manuscript to the
first one because you can submit the manuscript to the conference
again after revision following review comments.

The Distributed Computing Column features Siddhartha Jayanti, the winner of
the 2023 Principles of Distributed Computing Doctoral Dissertation Award.
His thesis presents several important concurrent algorithms, and raises
exciting opportunities for simple machine-verified proofs for concurrent
data structures.

In the Interview Column, Laura Kovacs and Moshe Vardi tell us which papers
motivated them to become researchers in their respective fields, give
advice on how to deal with failures, and share with us many interesting
anecdotes and perspectives about their daily work and about the directions

There are 12 PhD positions available at TU Graz, Austria. Topics of the
positions range through various aspects of *discrete mathematics and
algorithms.*
One of the position is dedicated to using topological methods for
designing new *distributed algorithms* (or to rule out their
existence).  We do not expect PhD candidates to necessarily already have
a background in topological methods and/or distributed algorithms; a
profound interest in graphs, discrete math, or algorithms is sufficient.

WORKSHOP ON HETEROGENEOUS TRUST IN DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS -- HTDS 2023

October 26th, 2023 in Princeton, New Jersey, colocated with AFT.

https://htds-workshop.github.io

OVERVIEW

Many permissionless systems are based on a global, collective
assumption about adversarial behavior – e.g. that less than 50% of
hashing power or staked tokens are adversarial, as in Bitcoin and
Ethereum.

However, other systems, like the XRP ledger, MobileCoin, the Stellar
network, and the Anoma protocol, allow each participant to flexibly
make its own assumptions about failures and adversaries. This
flexibility is useful, for example:
* As a more egalitarian approach than proof-of-work and
proof-of-stake for building

Plus, having the discussion with colleagues, we want to invite the students
to participate in the workshop - as far as I understand that could help to
get funding. (However, with no proceedings right now)

https://eatcs.org/images/bulletin/beatcs140.pdf

In the distributed computing column, Michel Raynal revisits the concepts of
mutual exclusion and consensus and argues that consensus is to logical
objects what mutual exclusion is to physical objects.

I also invite you to read the interview with Shweta Agrawal, our “person

Blockchain, as a source of decentralized trust, is forming the underlying
infrastructure for a variety of applications such as payments,
decentralized finance (DeFi), the decentralized web (Web3), NFTs, and even
cryptography protocols. Given how blockchains relate to such a wide
variety of applications and to so many areas of computer science and
economics, there is a lot to learn and understand how this field evolves.
With Blockchains + X, we will conduct a series of workshops each focusing

The Edsger W. Dijkstra Prize in Distributed Computing is named for Edsger
Wybe
Dijkstra (1930-2002), a pioneer in the area of distributed computing. His
seminal works on concurrency primitives (such as semaphores), concurrency
problems (such as mutual exclusion and deadlock), finding shortest paths in
graphs, fault-tolerance, and self-stabilization are important foundations

Title: Online Parallel Paging and Green Paging

Abstract: The parallel paging problem captures the task of efficiently
sharing a cache among multiple parallel processors. Whereas the
single-processor version of the problem has been well understood for
decades, it has remained an open question how to find optimal algorithms
for the multi-processor version. We solve this problem by giving optimal
multi-core paging algorithms for optimizing both makespan and the average
completion time. In
