Keren Censor-Hillel: The Landscape of Lower Bounds for the Congest Model, invited talk at SIROCCO 2016.

Abstract: In this talk we will travel in the land of lower bounds for the Congest model of distributed computing. I will overview some of the known lower bounds and techniques, present some new methods that allow to obtain additional lower bounds, and discuss some open problems and the challenges ahead.

Adrian Kosowski: What Makes a Distributed Problem Truly Local?, invited talk at SIROCCO 2016.

Abstract: In this talk we try to identify the characteristics of a distributed network problem which make it easy (or hard) to solve by means of fast local algorithms. We look at specific combinatorial tasks within the LOCAL model of computation, and phrase some recent algorithmic results in a framework of constraint satisfaction. Finally, we discuss the notion of locality for computational processes outside of the LOCAL model.

Danupon Nanongkai: Challenges in Distributed Shortest Paths Algorithms, invited talk at SIROCCO 2016.

Abstract: This talk focuses on the current challenges in computing distances and shortest paths in the distributed CONGEST setting, in particular exact algorithms and the directed case. I will survey previous results and techniques, and try to point out where previous techniques fail, and where major new ideas are needed.

Experimenting with lightweight conference arrangements: when you come to SIROCCO 2016 tomorrow, you will just pick up your name tag at the registration desk, and that is all.

We decided not to give any conference bags or any kind of printed material. A vast majority of it usually goes to a trash bin, so hopefully we are producing a bit less waste this way.

Conference participants got their receipts as PDF files when they registered online, and those who really need paper receipts with real signatures will get them separately (in our case only approx. 10% of participants needed those). The name tag is enough to get coffee & lunch & dinner. Pens and papers are available for those who need them. Pre-proceedings are available for free online.

It will be interesting to see how things go and how participants like the arrangements. We will have an anonymous feedback form so that participant can provide feedback: http://goo.gl/forms/szRkGectOO7NubJp1

Thomas Sauerwald: A Survey on Smoothing Networks, invited talk at SIROCCO 2016.

Abstract: In this talk we will consider smoothing networks (a.k.a. balancing networks) that accepts an arbitrary stream of tokens on input and routes them to output wires. Pairs of wires can be connected by balancers that direct arriving tokens alternately to its two outputs. We first discuss some classical results and relate smoothing networks to their siblings, including sorting and counting networks. Then we will present some results on randomised smoothing networks, where balancers are initialised randomly. Finally, we will explore stronger notions of smoothing networks including a model where an adversary can specify the input and the initialisation of all balancers.
