experiences/experimental results are solicited on topics that
tentatively include, but are not limited to:

Distributed Computing Track Topics:

* Distributed algorithms: design, analysis, and complexity
* Distributed operating systems
* Distributed database systems
* Distributed multimedia systems
* Embedded distributed systems, sensors and mobile robots
* Formal methods for distributed systems
