The International Summer School on Distributed Computing is supported by the University of Siena and the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche . It is intended primarily for graduated students and researchers interested in specializing in the research field of Distributed Algorithms, as weel as for professionals interested in learning the current research directions and problems. Each course comprises of formal lecture periods and of directed study-discussion periods. Upon request, students may be graded for proficency in any of the courses.
