The invited-speaker line-up for the 25th Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC) in July has a big Cornell presence: the five invited speakers include Jon Kleinberg, current sabbatical visitor Danny Dolev, Cornell PhD alum Tushar Chandra (now at Google), and former research associate Werner Vogels (now CTO at Amazon).

Danny Dolev and Joe Halpern also have papers appearing in the proceedings.
