Decentralized and distributed systems: proceedings of the IFIP WG10.3 International Conference on Decentralized and Distributed Systems, Palma de Mallorca, Spain, 13-17 September 1993
Decentralized and distributed systems have a drastic impact on everyday life because they constitute the key of cooperation and integration of large organizations and services. Distributed management of information and the ability to take local decisions or to perform local treatments, allow more flexibility and power. This raises many challenges and open problems, leading to new ideas, concepts and methods supported by new technologies. This publication is devoted to the study of developments in the field. The papers, sourced from a broad range of international contributors, cover a wide spectrum of specific topics, including: distributed algorithms, models, performance evaluation, interconnect, design methods and parallel simulation.
