Dear PODC community,
the new Bulletin of the EATCS is now available online at:
The distributed computing column is contributed by Michael Elkin and Ofer Neiman who observe and explore an intriguing connection between near-additive spanners and near-exact hopsets. The authors survey common results and proof techniques, and point out open questions.
I would like to thank Michael and Ofer very much for their contribution.
Enjoy and take care!
