Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SBRC)

Starting May 30th, the Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SBRC) is going to be held in the city of Salvador - Bahia - Brazil. This is a quite traditional conference - it is the 34th edition - and even though it is not HPC focused, it has many tracks related to HPC, for example, cloud computing, distributed systems and fault tolerance. In addition to paper presentations, there will be short-courses, workshops, demo sessions, panels and tutorials. The keynotes of this edition are Jon Crowcroft, from University of Cambridge, and Matti Hiltunen, from AT&T Research Lab. So far, there will be two tutorials, both about cloud computing: the first about HPC Cloud, delivered by a team from IBM Research and the other about OpenStack, by people from UFCG and HP.
