The team of four Whiting School Computer Scientists won the Best Paper Award (out of 531 submissions) at the 37th annual IEEE International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS). Computer Scientists Amy Babay, Emily Wagner, Michael Dinitz, and Yair Amir, submitted their paper entitled, “Timely, Reliable, and Cost-effective Internet Transport Service Using Dissemination Graphs.”

“We chose to work on this topic as part of a broader ‘structured overlay’ vision that we believe will be an important part of the future of the Internet. Structured overlay networks enable new services that the Internet cannot natively provide by placing intelligence in the middle of the network (in the form of general purpose computers in strategic data centers),” said Amy Babay.

Held June 5-9, in Atlanta, GA, the conference gathered researchers, developers and users who presented, discussed and exchanged the ideas and R&D results on topics related to the cutting edge technologies of distributed computing systems.
