Summer school on Practice and Theory of Concurrent Computing July 3-7, 2017 Saint-Petersburg, Russia Organized by ITMO University/Telecom ParisTech, supported by DevExperts, Yandex, and DISCMAT ANR project. Concurrency is everywhere. Be it a mainstream multi-core machine, a computing cluster, or a large-scale distributed service, a modern computing system involves multiple processes that concurrently perform independent computations and communicate to synchronize their activities. Understanding concurrency is therefore getting essential to be competitive in practice or research in computer science. The school will offer courses on a wide range of practical and theoretical aspects of concurrency given by renowned experts in the field. The program will cover the following topics: - Concurrent data structures - Advanced locking techniques - Wait-free and lock-free computing - Distributed universality - Transactional memory - Distributed machine learning - Relaxed concurrent data structures - Concurrency in weak memory models - Lock-free memory management Speakers: Dan Alistarh (IST Austria & ETH Zurich) Rachid Guerraoui (EPFL) Danny Hendler (Ben Gurion University) Maurice Herlihy (Brown University) Anne-Marie Kermarrec (INRIA Rennes) Erez Petrank (Technion) Michel Raynal (Université de Rennes) Liuba Shrira (Brandeis University) Nir Shavit (MIT) Martin Vechev (ETH Zurich)
