Abstract: Distributed systems are ubiquitous in both industry and our daily life.

Stephan Holzer: A Local Broadcast Layer for the SINR Network Model
Friday, April 3, 2015 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

We present the first algorithm to implement an abstract MAC (absMAC) layer in the Signal-to-Interference-plus-Noise-Ratio (SINR) wireless network model. We first prove that efficient SINR implementations are not possible for the standard absMAC specification.

MIra Radeva/Cameron Musco: Distributed House-Hunting in Ant Colonies
Friday, March 20, 2015 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

We introduce the study of the ant colony house-hunting problem from a distributed computing perspective. When an ant colony's nest becomes unsuitable due to size constraints or damage, the colony must relocate to a new nest.

Kishori Mohan Konwar: Dependable Decentralized Cooperation with the Help of Reliability Estimation
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 - 11:00am to 12:30pm

Internet supercomputing is an approach to solving partition-able, computation-intensive problems by using large numbers of interconnected computers.
