The Euro-TM COST action and INRIA Rennes Bretagne Atlantique organize a joint school on Distributed Systems and Transactional Memory. This winter school will take place in La Plagne, french Alps, from March 16th to March 21st 2014.

This winter school will feature a series of talks by renowned researchers in hot topics in distributed computing and transactional memory, from both a theoretical and a practical perspective.

PhD students will have the opportunity to get feedback on their work and the school will dedicate two time slots for that. PhD students interested in presenting their work should submit a 1-page abstract motivating the main research challenge they are addressing and stating the approach being taken. A selection of proposals will be chosen for presentation. To submit an abstract, please send an email to Vivien Quéma and Paolo Romano.

The six first editions of the HTDC winter school were fully booked (HTDC'2008, HTDC'2009, HTDC'2010, HTDC'2011, HTDC'2012, and HTDC'2013) and we recommend early registrations.

EuroSys and the Euro-TM COST Action will sponsor a limited number of grants (see the registration page for details).
