Vassos Hadzilacos

Here is Vassos with his GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT ...

... and here is said accomplishment


I am interested in the theory of distributed computing; particularly, in fault tolerance and synchronisation.  In the past I have also worked on database concurrency control.

Here is a list of papers that I have (co-)authored, along with abstracts and, in some cases, postscript versions.

I have been on the editorial board of Distributed Computing since 1997, and was the journal's editor-in-chief during 2000-2008.  In the past, I also served on the editorial boards of the SIAM Journal on Computing (1998-2005) and the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (1996-1999).
