the World Is Distributed Exploring the tension between scale and coordination
the World Is Distributed Exploring the tension between scale and coordination

As distributed computing systems are being deployed within a growing number of everyday applications, they are reaching unheard-of levels of scale, dynamicity, and complexity. The construction of such systems requires novel fundamental approaches that stand in stark contrast to existing strategies in many areas of distributed computing research. The objective of the WIDE team is to provide such a foundation, by investigating some of the key fundamental theoretical and practical questions posed by modern distributed computer systems.

More specifically, we would like to explore the inherent tension between scalability and coordination guarantees, and develop novel techniques and paradigms that are adapted to the rapid and profound changes impacting today's distributed systems, both in terms of the application domains they support and the operational constraints they must meet.
