the theory, specifications, design and implementation of distributed
systems, including: 
- distributed and multiprocessor algorithms
- communication and synchronization protocols
- coordination and consistency protocols
- self-stabilization, reliability and fault-tolerance of distributed systems
- performance analysis of distributed algorithms and systems
- specification verification of distributed systems
- security issues in distributed computing and systems
- applications of distributed computing, such as distributed
  collaborative environments, peer-to-peer systems, cluster and grid
