About EMJD-DC

EMJD-DC is an international doctoral programme in Distributed Systems.

Students carry out their research work over up to four years in two universities from different countries, with additional mobility to industry in most projects. Joint training schools cover both scientific topics and transferable skills, such as project and scientific management, communication, innovation techniques. EMJD-DC initially awards double degrees, however a task is evaluating the implementation of a Joint Degree.

The research projects address some of the key technological challenges of our time, mainly but not exclusively: ubiquitous data-intensive applications, scalable distributed systems (including Cloud computing and P2P models), adaptive distributed systems (autonomic computing, green computing, decentralized and voluntary computing), and applied distributed systems (distributed algorithms and systems, working in an inter-disciplinary manner, in existing and emerging fields to address industrial and societal needs in the European and worldwide context.

The consortium partners assembled in EMJD-DC have a high international reputation in the research fields described above. They complement each other very well in their specialisation fields of research, and in the corresponding training offers. The first language of all training and research activities will be English, but students are exposed to local languages.

Our Consortium has a strong track record of participation in international projects for research and education, and in particular with each other. Three consortium members already collaborate in the Erasmus Mundus Master in Distributed Computing. The majority of partners are also participants in the ERCIM consortium, all belong to theCluster University network, and several EU Research Projects. EMJD-DC is supported by several labs with direct links with the industry, mainly the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS), the Centre of Excellence in Information and Communication Technologies (CETIC),INESC-ID Lisboa and several industrial labs such as Telefonica Research (TID), Ericsson, CA Labs, Yahoo Research, and SME asEuranova and Peerialism.

EMJD-DC Spring event (June 1-3, 2016)

The spring event for 2016 will take place near IST, in Costa da Caparica, Lisbon.
EMJD-DC PhD students should coordinate with his local professor (thus decentralized) to prepare the trip as soon as possible to save travel costs and stay in the hotel of the venue (costs covered by the consortium). PhD students will present PhD plans (your supervisor will guide you in the preparation): initial for 1st year PhDs, revised/progress for 2nd and 3rd year.

The event will start after lunch on Wednesday 1st, at 9am. Presentations and other activities will bring us until Friday 3rd at 17h.


Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctoral Programme on Distributed Computing
Spring Event 2016 Workshop
Call for submissions


This year, the EMJD-DC Spring event will host a workshop on the broad area of distributed computing, which will take place during the afternoons of June 2 and 3. The workshop will host selected presentations by both EMJD-DC students and external students from other universities. This workshop aims at enahcing the visibility of the research conducted by the EMJD-DC students, as well as to expose EMJD-DC students to related research that is being carried out in leading universities in the field.

Presentations of external students will be selected based on the submission of a short paper, 2-6 pages long LNCS format (template available here). Presentations of students enrolled in the EMJD-DC will instead be based on their annual reports.

Submissions of both annual EDJD-DC students’ reports and of short papers form external students will be managed via EasyChair.

Presentations will be selected by a Program Committee composed by EMJD-DC students, as well as of external students from institutions participating in the event.

Important dates

  • Submissions due: May 1
  • Reviews due: May 15

EMJD-DC Spring event (June 1-3, 2015)

The spring event for 2015 will take place at UPC, in its main campus (North Campus, C6-E106, and a parallel room in case is needed).
PhD students should coordinate with his local professor (thus decentralized) to prepare the trip as soon as possible to save travel costs and stay in hotels close to the venue (costs covered by the consortium). PhD students will present PhD plans (your supervisor will guide you in the preparation): initial for 1st year PhDs, revised/progress for 2nd and 3rd year.

The event will start after lunch on Monday 1st, around 2pm. Presentations and other activities will bring us until Wednesday 3rd with a goodbye dinner. The meeting rooms will be open if you want to spend the morning on Thursday 4th for related meetings.

The program will appear soon here. upc-c6

EMJD-DC Spring event (June 1-4, 2014)

The spring event for 2014 will take place at KTH, in its main campus.
PhD students should coordinate with his local professor (thus decentralized) to prepare the trip as soon as possible to save travel costs and stay in hotels close to the venue (costs covered by the consortium). PhD students will present PhD plans (your supervisor will guide you in the preparation): initial for 1st year PhDs and revised/progress for 2nd year.

Our Spring event will be held together with the iSocial summer event: related topics but different season 😉
