Workshop on Advances in Distributed Graph Algorithms

ADGA workshop series focuses on the theoretical foundations of distributed graph algorithms. All presentations in the ADGA workshops are invited talks that cover current topics in this research area. The talks are designed to cover general aspects of a research topic rather than to present a particular new result. Such aspects include the advances achieved in the topic, the main remaining objectives, the technical obstacles, etc.

ADGA has been colocated with DISC, the International Symposium on Distributed Computing, since the first workshop in 2012, and the tradition will continue also in the coming years. ADGA follows the same code of conduct as DISC.
