about

DISC, the International Symposium on DIStributed Computing, is an annual forum for research presentations on all facets of distributed computing. DISC 2001 was held on Oct 3-5, 2001, in Lisbon, Portugal. This volume includes 23 contributed papers. It is expected that these papers will be submitted in more polished form to fully refereed scienti?c journals. The extended abstracts of this year's invited lectures, by Gerard LeLann and David Peleg, will appear in next year's proceedings. We received 70 regular submissions. These submissions were read and eval- ted by the program committee, with the help of external reviewers when needed. Overall, the quality of the submissions was excellent, and we were unable to - cept many deserving papers. This year's Best Student Paper award goes to Yong-Jik Kim for the paper "A Time Complexity Bound for Adaptive Mutual Exclusion" by Yong-Jik Kim and James H. Anderson.
