Distributed Computing Research Group

The research of our group focuses on the design of distributed algorithms and, in general, on fundamental aspects of computing in distributed environments. Some topics of interests are, for example: distributed algorithms for agent-based environments; peer-to-peer computing; sense of direction and structural information in distributed systems; position based, energy efficient routing and broadcasting in wireless, ad hoc, and sensor networks; fault tolerant computing, ...
