SREPLS 8 a success

SREPLS 8 was held on Friday 5th January at King’s College, London, and attracted around 50 participants.  Thanks to Laurie Tratt and Lukas Diekmann for organising another great event, as well as all speakers and attendees for contributing to the event.

Distinguished paper and artefact award

The paper “Verifying strong eventual consistency in distributed systems” and the accompanying Isabelle formalisation has been honoured with two separate awards at the OOPSLA/SPLASH conference:

  1. A distinguished paper award for the paper itself.
  2. A distinguished artefact award for the Isabelle formalisation accompanying the work (5 out of 34 artefacts granted a distinction).

This was joint work with Victor Gomes, Martin Kleppmann, and Alastair Beresford.
