Topic 3 Scheduling and Load-Balancing
While scheduling and load-balancing problems have been studied for several decades, the dramatic multi-scale shifts in distributed systems and their usage in the last few years have raised new and exciting challenges. These challenges span the entire spectrum from theory to practice, as demonstrated by the selection of papers in the scheduling and load-balancing topic this year at Europar. Out of the twenty-three submissions to the topic we accepted six papers. The topic organizers would like to thank all reviewers whose work made it possible for each paper to receive at least three reviews.
