Welcome To TCDP!

Distributed processing serves as one of the key technologies of network-based communication and computing systems. We have witnessed the evolution of distributed computing over the past 40 years as the underlying networking environments kept changing and the application areas kept expanding. We can also foresee the new developments in the field in the coming years when we are facing the new challenges brought by increasing scale and dynamicity of systems, huge amount of data, and higher demand in support of emerging social, economical, and industrial applications.
