Decentralized systems have an increasing impact because they are the key to cooperation and even integration of large organizations and services. The increasing demands for computation, related distributed information and reliability have overtaken single machines, forcing the use of interconnected ones. The resulting challenges and problems are leading to new ideas, concepts and methods. The papers in this book cover a range of topics including: Communication Networks, Distributed Operating Systems, Object and Actor Oriented Systems, Logic Programming, Theoretical Models and Analysis, Parallel and Distributed Algorithms, Methodology of Parallelization, Scheduling and Load Balancing, and Performance Evaluation.
