Bernadette Charron-Bost, Shlomi Dolev, Jo Ebergen, and Ulrich Schmid. 08371 Summary – Fault-Tolerant Distributed Algorithms on VLSI Chips. In Fault-Tolerant Distributed Algorithms on VLSI Chips. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 8371, pp. 1-4, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2009)


Chips was devoted to exploring whether the wealth of existing fault-tolerant distributed algorithms research can be utilized for meeting the challenges of future-generation VLSI chips. Participants from both the distributed fault-tolerant algorithms community, interested in this emerging application domain, and from the VLSI systems-on-chip and digital design community, interested in well-founded system-level approaches to fault-tolerance, surveyed the current state-of-the-art and tried to identify possibilities to work together. The seminar clearly achieved its purpose: It became apparent that most existing research in Distributed Algorithms is too heavy-weight for being immediately applied in the “core” VLSI design context, where power, area etc. are scarce resources. At the same time, however, it was recognized that emerging trends like large multicore chips and increasingly critical applications create new and promising application domains for fault-tolerant distributed algorithms. We are convinced that the very fruitful cross-community interactions that took place during the Dagstuhl seminar will contribute to new research activities in those areas.
