Conflict-free Replicated Data Types: An Overview
Nuno Manuel Ribeiro Preguiça,
Universidade Nova de Lisboa –
Internet-scale distributed systems often replicate data at multiple geographic locations to provide low latency and high availability, despite node and network failures. Geo-replicated systems that adopt a weak consistency model allow replicas to temporarily diverge, requiring a mechanism for merging concurrent updates into a common state. Conflict-free Replicated Data Types (CRDT) provide a principled approach to address this problem. This talk will provide an overview of CRDT research and practice, addressing the aspects relevant for the application developer, the system developer and the CRDT developer independently
Nuno Preguiça is Associate Professor at DI FCT UNL, and leads the Computer Systems group of the NOVA Laboratory for Computer Science and Informatics. In 2011 he spent his sabbatical leave at INRIA.
The broad aim of his research is to develop techniques that allow applications to efficiently access and share data at any location and at any time, focusing on a broad range of contributions, from principles and theoretical foundations to systems construction.
He has been the principal investigator of national projects FEW, Byzantium, RepComp, SwiftComp, the site leader for EU project SyncFree and participated in several other projects.
He has received a Google Research Award in 2009 by our work on solutions for cloud data management.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
